They allow users to connect copper-based Ethernet devices or network segments to any type of fibre-optic Ethernet network. This product range includes compact 6-port switches with two fibre-optic ports and one can choose whether to connect multimode or single-mode fibre optics. 5-port or 8-port twisted pair Lean Managed switches are also available for twisted pair networks.

Since the switches can be easily diagnosed using Web-based Management (WBM) or SNMP, large-scale and redundant networks can be set up and serviced in an optimal manner. When faults occur, the switches automatically reconfigure themselves using standard RSTP or Phoenix Contact’s Fast Ring Detection for rapid network recovery.
