HARTING releases Ha-VIS mCon Ethernet switches with PROFINET
April 01 2014
HARTING releases Ha-VIS mCon 3000 Next Generation managed Ethernet switches, optimized for fast deployment in the harshest industrial environments to support today’s increasingly sophisticated network structures. These switches deliver high availability, network security, monitoring and reliability and are designed for mounting on top-hat rails in control cabinets. With their PROFINET I/O stack, mCon 3000 NG switches can be deployed and incorporated seamlessly into existing and new PROFINET applications.
These switches also are compatible with other industrial Ethernet based protocols including EtherNet/IP. mCon 3000 NG Ethernet switches can be configured using a web interface, command line interface, SNMP or the multifunction button located in front, which provides additional options for fast, basic configuration. Ha-VIS mCon 3000 switches also are equipped with an SD card slot allowing for existing configurations to be stored as backup or for transferring to another SD card-equipped Ha-VIS mCon for fast commissioning.
The Ha-VIS mCon 3000 Next Generation comes in two models: the 3080-A with eight 10/100Base-T(X) RJ45 ports and the 3102-AASFP with eight 10/100Base-T(X) ports and two 10/100/1000Base-T(X) combo ports with SFP slots for either copper or fiber optic lines. All ports are managed, non-blocking and support auto-crossing, auto-negotiation and auto-polarity. With an operating temperature range of -40oC to +70oC and features like Media Redundancy Protocol and Precision Time Protocol, these switches are well-suited for a wide range of applications and operating environments, such as factory automation and robotics, marine systems as well as wind and solar power installations.
