New “SLIM” design available for Ethernet switches

The new FLEXtra SLIM switches in ultra-compact design are suitable for control cabinets with very limited space on the DIN rail.


Design and function
The unmanaged FLEXtra SLIM 5-port Ethernet switch, for example, impresses with its lightweight yet robust design. Equipped with 100 Mbit – in a space-saving width of just 24 mm and an installation depth of 45 mm – it is also suitable for control cabinets with limited space reserves, such as those found in CNC machining centers or machines with remote control cabinets in the field. 

The switch is suitable for mounting on the top-hat rail and is very easy to integrate into your network. Once plugged in, it is immediately ready for operation thanks to the simple plug & play installation. No configuration is necessary.



PROFINET compatible
The FLEXtra unmanaged Ethernet switches are suitable for PROFINET networks. The LLPD (neighbourhood detection) and PTCP (time synchronization) functions are handled correctly with the switch in accordance with the PROFINET standard. The unmanaged Ethernet switch therefore complies with PROFINET Conformance Class A.

Available variants and further planning
The FLEXtra SLIM unmanaged variants are currently available with 5x or 8x RJ45 ports. A 16-port variant in a slightly wider version will be available shortly. Further variants are planned in this design with Gigabit (1000BASE-T) for more data throughput, as well as variants with managed functions.
