  • Load dump protection

The Ethernet hub is a standalone device that can be used universally as a hub in POWERLINK networks. It is suitable for both 100 Mbit/s (Fast Ethernet) and 10 Mbit/s networks. The hub automatically recognizes the transfer speed for the channels.

The Ethernet connections are made using D-keyed M12 connectors. All ports are equipped with auto-MDIX (auto-crossover).

The module is designed for a voltage range of 8 to 32 VDC and equipped with a power supply protected against load dump.
