For the first time a waterproof switch with SFP transceivers is now available in the shape of the new OCTOPUS OS32. It means that fast data networks with different transmission technologies can be implemented flexibly and extended cost-effectively as needed, even in challenging environments. In addition, devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones or wireless access points can be powered with no extra cables thanks to PoE support, reducing wiring costs considerably.
Last but not least, the OCTOPUS OS32 is characterized by a rugged metal housing that can withstand even the toughest conditions. Extensive management and security methods as well as fast redundancy mechanisms ensure maximum network availability.
The OCTOPUS OS32 can be used in applications that demand the highest level of reliability and performance, for example in mechanical engineering. Since the switch can be seamlessly integrated into Profinet and Ethernet/IP environments, it is also suitable for automotive plant installations.
In rail applications, the OCTOPUS OS32 can be used to implement future-proof solutions for increased passenger safety and comfort. For example, additional IP cameras can be installed and high-resolution images transmitted in real time. Furthermore, this waterproof and extremely rugged switch can be mounted almost anywhere and not even different climatic conditions will affect it. This makes the OCTOPUS OS32 ideal for use around the world.
