The eCon 9000 and mCon 9000 19" Ethernet Switches Families

New Product Family

The new eCon and mCon 9000 product families extend the spectrum of managed and unmanaged Ethernet Switches available from the HARTING technology group.

Up to 7 Ethernet clients can be connected via M12 sockets (D-coding) at the front of the device. Further Ethernet connections can be made over the backplane inside a 19" rack. The product families are suitable for use in industrial applications and supports both Ethernet (10 MBit/s) and Fast Ethernet (100 MBit/s). Line- and star-topology networks as well as mixed forms are supported. The ports of the Ethernet switches are fitted with integrated LEDs, which enable easy and fast network diagnosis. In addition to these optical indicators, all switches have a potential-free relay contact, which can be connected via the DIN cable connector.

The eCon 9000 products are plug-and-play as standard. The mCon 9000 product range has, in addition to the standard functions, the ability to be managed over an SNMP interface.
