The managed Industrial Ethernet switches in the OpenRail family provide an optimum degree of flexibility. You can select from our most common configurations or,
The features of these compact OpenRail switches can be configured in a step-by-step process - from selecting the number of ports with Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet data rates, selecting different industrial approvals, temperature ranges to software functionalities. At the end of the process, an order code is generated, which contains all the necessary configuration information. Once we have received your order, your customized switches will be immediately manufactured. We will then deliver them to you at the same price and delivery conditions as for our standard devices.
In the automation area, the demands made on data communication via Ethernet differ widely from application to application. They range from simple installations to complex, high-performance networks with comprehensive management functions and extremely high failure tolerance. The OpenRail is the perfect switch for so many different application scenarios and is ideal for machine and plant engineering where Ethernet is becoming the communications protocol.
In addition, the OpenRail family has the required certifications for power transmission and distribution, oil and gas and transportation applications.

Versions with 4 to 25 Fast Ethernet ports
Versions with 8 to 24 Fast Ethernet ports plus 2 additional Gigabit ports
Versions with 9 Gigabit Ethernet ports
Convenient configuration and diagnostics thanks to comprehensive management functions (serial interface, web interface, SNMP V1/V2, HiVision File Transfer, SW, HTTP/TFTP, LLDP-MED)
High network availability owing to fast redundancy protocols (HIPER Ring, MRP, MSTP, RSTP-IEEE802.1D-2004, MRP and RSTP in parallel, Link Aggregation
High data security thanks to numerous security mechanisms (IP and MAC Port Security, SNMP V3, SSHv2, Authentication (IEEE802.1x), 802.1x Multi Client Authentication, Guest VLAN and Unauthenticated VLAN, Port based Radius VLAN Assignment, Login Banner)
Reliability - Designed to operate in environments ranging from -40C to +70C and tolerate shock and vibration levels that would quickly destroy office grade switches.
Flexibility - Available in standard configurations ranging from 4 to 26 port, with both copper and fiber ports, Gigabit and 10/1000 speeds and in managed and unmanaged configurations, theses switches offer the ideal mix of flexibility, horsepower, and value.
Ease of Installation - There is no need for additional documentation, standard procedures, or operator training when RS20/30/40 switches are installed in the same network as other Hirschmann products because they use a common firmware as other Hirschmann products allowing networks to easily evolve and change.
