Depending on the selected scope of services, the software offers management, diagnostic and filtering features as well as redundancy methods and security mechanisms of varying degrees. All switches are characterized by a waterproof and dust-resistant housing and an extended temperature range from -40°C to +70°C

Hirschmann Waterproof IP65/IP67 OCTOPUS Switches | Descriptions

The OCTOPUS family can be used anywhere where reliable and efficient data transmission has to be assured at all times, even under the harshest conditions. Thanks to their robust and compact design, the switches can be mounted – without any protective housing – both on a wall or directly on a machine. Even water, dirt, dust, vibrations or excessive mechanical stress don’t affect them. In addition, OCTOPUS switches can also withstand extreme heat and cold. Apart from unmanaged devices, managed versions are also offered with different scopes of services installed. Last but not least, the OCTOPUS family also offers PoE switches, which can be used to power devices directly via a data cable.
