The 2000/2100 series intelligent switches are targeted products for the series production of machines. They make a simple yet intelligent network for growing communication requirements in machines a reality. Simple unmanaged networks often no longer fulfill these requirements and are reaching their limitations. As an alternative to unmanaged switches, the cost-effective FL SWITCH 2000/2100 allows configuration and monitoring of the machine network in ways previously reserved for the more expensive managed switches.
The 2200/2300 series switches are a contemporary update of the Lean Managed Switch and are oriented toward the automation networks in a wide range of applications, including marine, process technology, infrastructure, wind energy, machine building, and systems manufacturing.
