Our Industrial Ethernet product range

Unmanaged Switches

Unmanaged switches require no configuration and are nevertheless adaptable. They use basic standardised protocols, such as autonegotiation, autocrossing and flow control, allowing them to adapt automatically to widely varying transmission speeds or connector assignments. All switches support the use of twisted pair cabling with RJ45 interface or fibre optic cable based on the interfaces specified in IEEE 802.3. We offer different versions with different features. In addition to the unmanaged switches of the EcoLine, BasicLine and ValueLine, we can also offer you Power over Ethernet variants within all lines that can significantly reduce your wiring work.

  • Fast Ethernet and Gigabit versions available, including Power over Ethernet variants
  • Rapid fault diagnosis thanks to the clearly visible LED display
  • Wide variety of ports in terms of number and features to meet individual requirements
  • Robust housing for reliable long-term use in different environments
  • Numerous international approvals for use in many different industries

Managed Switches

In order to satisfy all the requirements of industrial networks, our managed switches are available in four different lines: ValueLine, AdvancedLine, PremiumLine and SubstationLine. This selection ensures the availability of the right product regardless of application-specific and industrial requirements. The lines offer both DIN rail and 19" rack models, Fast, Gigabit and up to 10 Gigabit interfaces, a broad selection of port numbers and types, Power over Ethernet variants, support for the most important industrial automation protocols and offer numerous international approvals, which makes them ideal for use in many different industries.

  • Extensive set of management features enable the set-up of various redundancy, monitoring, traffic filter and security functions
  • Huge variety of port count and media type enable a wide range of applications
  • Support of industrial protocols such as PROFINET-RT, EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP for optimal integration into the most common automation networks

Security routers

Our routers with integrated VPN technology are ideally suited for secure remote access to components and systems in remote networks. They are available with either wired or mobile Internet connectivity and support the u-link Remote Access Service. This allows remote access systems to be set up quickly and easily, with no special IT knowledge required.

  • Secure and easy remote maintenance via Weidmüller u-link Remote Access Service
  • Increased network security thanks to stateful inspection firewall, IP/port forwarding and network segmentation
  • Full flexibility thanks to Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with 2 to a maximum of 6 ports
  • Variations with integrated 4G/LTE modem for fast, Internet-based radio communication access

Media converters and protocol gateways

A goal of industrial automation is to achieve the continuous networking of all system components. This also requires the interconnection of devices and network segments that use different transmission technologies or are very far away from each other. Our media converters and protocol gateways ensure smooth communication between all network participants and are also especially convenient and economical.

  • Integration of serial devices into Ethernet networks
  • Use of Ethernet over long distances and in EMC-critical environments
  • Transmission of serial signals over long distances
  • Conversion between Modbus RTU/ASCII and Modbus TCP

Industrial WLAN

Our WLAN module can be used flexibly as an access point (AP), bridge or client. The alternative Power over Ethernet supply makes integration into an existing infrastructure especially easy. Maximum data integrity is guaranteed through integration into a RADIUS service and secure encryption with WPA2 in the radio field. Several radio fields can be flexibly spread out. Within these fields, the clients can move between the radio cells thanks to fast roaming.

  • Compliant access point / client according to IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Fast roaming for interruption-free connection changes between access points
  • Power supply with PoE according to IEEE 802.3af possible
  • Integrated DIs/DOs for monitoring and alarms
  • Both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands

Antennas and antenna accessories

Weidmüller has a broad portfolio of industrial Wi-Fi® and cellular antennas. These products are optimally adapted to modern Wi-Fi and cellular network standards and are suitable for mounting in control cabinets, as well as on walls and masts. External antennas from Weidmüller can significantly increase the performance and stability of wireless data connections to ensure reliable signal transmission.

  • Suitable for Wi-Fi® and mobile radio communication
  • Up to Wi-Fi® 6 and Wi-Fi® 6E (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, 6 GHz)
  • Up to 5G (NR) support (700 MHz - 3.8 GHz)
  • Robust design (up to IP67 protection)
