The SDI-862 is a simple and cost effective unmanaged fibre switch suitable for use in a wide range of factory and building automation applications. Two models are available – The SC2 for use on up to 2 km (1.24 mi) of multimode fibre and the SC30 for single-mode applications to 30 km (18.6 mi). A high speed switch core ensures full speed on all ports and transparency to any Ethernet protocol.
The unit is designed for DIN rail mounting into industrial cabinets allowing simple Ethernet connections to be established between PLCs, I/O units, drives, inverters and HMIs. The dual power input makes the unit ideal in these types of application and the fault relay can be connected to an I/O unit to provide simple network management.
Designed to work in industrial environments with its IP 31 Aluminium housing and a wide temperature specification the SDI-862 is an ideal automation solution.
The SDI-862 is so easy to use, simply connect power to the screw terminals and plug in your RJ-45 cables. If you plan to use the fault contacts a DIP switch allows configuration whilst LEDs provide simple diagnostics if required. A broadcast storm filter even helps out if a loop is created by mistake
