Industrial Hubs & Switches
Industrial Hubs are used to connect several Ethernet enable devices such as computers and PLCs together allowing them to function and share data within a network.
A Switch is a device in a computer network that connects other network devices via data cables are that enable communication between different networked devices. Switches manage the flow of data across a network by transmitting a received network packet to the intended devices only.
Network Switches and Industrial Hubs function by porting together several Ethernet devices in one, acting as a gateway for all of the Ethernet devices allowing them to interact and exchange data. They are particularly helpful if you have more than one device to connect to each other but have limited ports available.
Hubs offer a cost-efficient solution for quick network expansion, with a number of easily accessible ports for rapid access, some units offer surge protection options. Typical applications include the automation and energy industries, machinery and robotic installations and production process management.
