The world of industrial applications is undergoing a paradigm shift. Industry 4.0 and IIoT, and thus standardized connectivity solutions, are increasingly gaining importance in industry.
The new Kontron KSwitch product family represents a new generation of industrial-strength Fast, Gigabit or even future 10G Gigabit Ethernet switches.
With the new Ethernet switches, Kontron consistently uses a single-chip design, which offers the following advantages:
Due to the robust metal design, both low-cost unmanaged switches as well as web-smart managed switches of the Kontron KSwitch series are suitable for usage in harsh environments. The high temperature range and wide input voltage range allow a wide variety of applications without the need to select a specific model. This results in reduced inventory and service costs.
The use of standardized RJ45 connectors and SFPs results in cost savings in the selection of cables and fiber lines.
