MPL – Rugged 5/8 Port managed Gigabit Switch

Rugged 5/8 Port managed Gigabit Switch


The MAGBES Family consists of models matching your application needs. The five/eight ports can be equipped with RJ45 connectors or lockable headers of which two/four ports can be fiber. All ports have status LEDs, indicating the activity and speed of each port. The indication signals can also be accessed remote, same applies for reset and default setting.


MAGBES Family Highlights

  • DIN-Rail / Flange mount
  • Wide input 5-36VDC (MAGBES-20 only)
  • Fully manageable over Web Interface or Telnet
  • Copper or mixed Copper/Fiber versions
  • Fanless operation
  • Versions for -40°C to +85°C environment

These features make the boxed MAGBES switch ideally suited for any rugged or industrial network applications. Due to the low power consumption, robust and flexible design, the products are well suited for any embedded system. It is the perfect fit, whether they are used in a rugged, hot or other harsh environment. The MAGBES makes it easy to set up a challenging network!
