Mid-range Gigabit speed switch
13 June 2016
Belden has announced the newest industrial Ethernet switch from Hirschmann – the Greyhound 1040. This full Gigabit Ethernet switch delivers on the high-bandwidth and data speed needs of industrial networks and offers a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) fibre port option – reported to be a first for the industry.
The Greyhound 1040 switch supports up to 28 Gigabit ports and can operate as a backbone switch. For networks with strict uptime requirements, the Greyhound 1040 enables system updates, modifications and expansions without taking the network offline through:
- Redundant power supplies that can be easily changed out in the field.
- Interchangeable media modules that enable the addition of new ports or changing existing port types.
