The SPIDER III Standard Line of switches is future-proof thanks to Gigabit speed,. These switches are also designed for use in harsh environments and have the necessary certifications, making them ideal for the manufacturing, machine building, solar power and traffic control industries.

The SPIDER III Standard Line switches employ a plug-and-play principle that allows for easy installation without compromising quality or reliability. Users can connect multiple devices without the need for a complex configuration process. The SPIDER III Standard Line switches also use less electricity, which makes them a cost-effective way to transmit data.

“Industrial Ethernet is the technology of choice in both automation and infrastructure architectures, including those supporting emerging industry initiatives such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and IT/OT convergence,” said Sebastian Preiss, product manager for Hirschmann. “Due to the increasing amount of Ethernet-based field devices like sensors and actuators there is a need for Ethernet switches like SPIDER III Standard Line devices with a higher port count and data rates at the field level.”
