Hirschmann MSP30/40 Layer 3 Switches

This device uniquely gives you access to more Gigabit ports than any other modular compact switches on the market, so you can transmit larger amounts of data more quickly. Choose from 1 or 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports and easily upgrade in the future to 10 Gigabit speeds with the purchase of a new module – no new hardware required.

Key Benefits

  • Helps you meet rising bandwidth needs with a variety of port types and speeds (up to 28 total ports) – from single Gigabit to 2.5 Gigabit, an expected future IEEE standard

  • Operates in harsh, space-constrained conditions found in the transportation, discrete manufacturing, automotive and mining industries

  • Supports both legacy copper networks and newer fiber cabling networks, and provides Layer 2 and Layer 3 capabilities

  • Delivers an additional 120 watts of power though a new built-in Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) module

  • Enables simple configuration and diagnosis using HiDiscovery, Industrial HiVision or web interface

The managed rail switches MSP30/40 offer high-performance routing combined with the unique security functions of the MSP family. Therefore maximum productivity is ensured at all times for connected machines and systems. The MSP Layer 3 switches guarantee all-around network protection, making this modular switches the most powerful industrial Ethernet system for DIN rails. Thanks to Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support, terminal equipment can also be powered cost-effectively.

  • Layer 3 capability brings routing to the shop floor and enables communication between physically separated networks
  • Unique security functions set standards for network availability
  • Modular design with high number of Gigabit port options allows flexible and cost-effective solutions
