What Are D-Link Industrial Ethernet Switches?
D-Link Industrial Ethernet Switches have primarily the same necessary technological capabilities as standard Ethernet switches, but they’re built to higher standards in terms of connection reliability (enabled a backup power supply) and redundancy (through our Rapid-Recovery Ring architecture) than standard Ethernet switches, while also being ruggedised for deployment in harsher environments, such as those often encountered around industrial facilities, or in situations that are not climate controlled, such as outdoor cabinets.
D-Link Industrial Ethernet Switches are built to tolerate harsher conditions than most standard switches in terms of temperature, dust, lightning strike, vibration, corrosion, electromagnetic interference, and even impact (so it can withstand a fall from a potential failed mounting).
The abovementioned tolerances mean that special climate-controlled spaces don’t need to be built or in-place to house these switches. They can be installed in areas that industrial facilities are likely to already have, such as electrical closets, and mounted onto common local architectural elements, such as wall railings. With Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capabilities on specific models, these switches can be used to power devices such as cameras, VoIP phones, and Wi-Fi Access Points, facilitating their deployment in areas where they might lack access to a standard wall socket.
Ethernet networking enables a higher degree of redundancy than older proprietary Industrial standards allow. Standard Ethernet switches employ Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) architecture for redundant failover, which can re-route network transmission in the event of a failure in 50 milliseconds.View our products
