Your Benefits


OpenOCTOPUS enables you to quickly find the ideal IP67/65/54 switch for your requirements. The online configurator provides convenient drop-down lists from which you can easily choose features such as data rate, number of ports, power supply or industry-specific approvals. You also have the choice between easy-to-install unmanaged versions and powerful managed variants, running either Basic or Professional software from Hirschmann. Irrespective of which switch you choose from the more than 30 available in the OCTOPUS family, you are guaranteed fail-safe data communication, due to a robust design and SIL-certified software.

OpenOCTOPUS


Specially designed for use at the field level with automation networks, the switches in the OCTOPUS family ensure the highest industrial protection ratings (IP67, IP65 or IP54) regarding mechanical stress, humidity, dirt, dust, shock and vibrations. They are also capable of withstanding heat and cold, while fulfilling the strictest fire prevention requirements. The rugged design of the OCTOPUS switches are ideal for installing directly on machinery, outside of control cabinets and distribution boxes. The switches can be cascaded as often as required – permitting implementation of decentralized networks with short paths to the respective devices to considerably reducing costs for cabling.


OCTOPUS switches allow a wide range of applications to be networked, even in the harshest environmental conditions. One example is the machine and plant engineering sector, where the switches’ redundancy functions and SILcertified software permit high-availability data networks. Optimum conformity to standards ensures maximum long-term viability, meaning that systems can be cost-effectively extended whenever necessary.

These compact switches also enable futureoriented solutions in the transport sector. Despite their inherent space restrictions, trains, subways and buses can be equipped with applications that provide passengers more safety and convenience. Examples include Internet access, information displays, passenger counting systems and the connection of IP cameras. The PoE/PoE Plus function, OCTOPUS switches can also be used as a cost-effective method of providing power to a large number of devices via the data cable.
