Hirschmann OCTOPUS IP65/67 Managed Switches

The OCTOPUS Family of managed switches provide IP65/67 waterproof and dust-tight protection as well as ratings for on-board rail, fire protection in trains, railway line use, ship use, and road vehicle use. For high bandwidth applications, the Full Gigabit Managed versions comes equipped with full Gigabit Ethernet capability on all ports. Some versions support Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Introducing the Managed OCTOPUS 8TX
Now available in compact models, the OCTOPUS 8TX Managed versions provide an ideal solution for a fully manageable switch for mobile applications or cabinet-less installations on machines.

  • Robust Compact Housing: The OCTOPUS family ensures the highest industrial protection ratings (IP67/IP65) regarding mechanical stress, humidity, dirt, dust, shock and vibrations.
  • Protocol Support: Models now available that support Profinet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP
  • Supported Software: Basic, Advanced and Professional software versions which provide management, diagnostic and filtering features as well as seamless redundancy methods and security mechanisms of varying degrees.
  • Approved for Transportation Use: The managed OCTOPUS family meets application-specific regulations for use in railway vehicles, along railway lines, for fire protection in trains and in road vehicles.
  • Full Gigabit Ethernet Version: Includes switch and router
  • Power over Ethernet Support: Versions available supporting 120 W Power over Ethernet with optional PoE supply
