Lite Managed Industrial Switch

The Hirschmann GECKO  is the alternative to a fully managed switch. With the proper level of management functionality included, you can configure and monitor the switch without needing any special IT know-how. Commissioning is also very simple in comparison to fully-managed switches. The redundancy functionality of the GECKO  ensures that your production processes don’t grind to a halt even in the event of a data communication error. Due to its low power consumption, the switch also helps cut long-term operating costs. Featuring four Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 Mbit/s) and the ability to mount on a DIN rail, the compact dimensions (25 x 114 x 79 mm) of the GECKO require little space and inactive ports can be disabled to protect against possible misuse. The switch can be managed through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or via HiDiscovery and Industrial HiVision from Hirschmann™. A web interface for HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) deployment is also available. For monitoring purposes, the switch provides diagnostic and documentation options, such as a system log, Remote Monitoring (RMON) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Quality of Service (QoS) functions are also supported. Additional features include an IP30 protection rating, a wide operating temperature range, high resistance to shocks and vibration, and a 24 V DC power supply. Power consumption of less than 3 Watts, With a combination of managed and unmanaged switches, the GECKO is ideally suited for use in smaller networks, or on the edge of larger installations. It can also be used for carrying video signals or transmitting control data. For industrial manufacturers looking for a cost-effective way of entering the world of managed switches, the GECKO  offers simple network management and enhanced network availability. Network parameters can be centrally configured using a web interface, while redundancy and diagnostic functions ensure high network availability. In designing the GECKO all  the absolute necessary management functions were integrated to enable the configuration and monitoring of the switch. It can also be used when fully-managed switches are not needed, due to superfluous functionality or complex operation. With its compact, robust design, the GECKO can be used in a wide range of areas, from solar farms to production lines in the food and beverage sector.
