Lite Managed Industrial DIN Rail Fast Ethernet Switches - GECKO

Although these “lightly” managed switches stand out with their simplicity, they also offer functionalities that enable more advanced capabilities than available with unmanaged devices.


Those include redundancy functionality for a high reliability of the network, and fast and simple error diagnosis for higher machine uptime and smooth production workflows. Furthermore, it is possible to turn off unused ports to prevent unwanted connections that may cause harm to your network. Finally, the GECKO 4TX and GECKO 5TX switches help you to get more status information from your network through easy-to-implement management functionality.
