Belden's SPIDER II 16TX EEC and SPIDER II 16TX/2DS-S EEC switches have a high port density and are designed to implement industrial Ethernet technology and can withstand extreme heat and cold, and can be used in environments with a high explosion risk. CoBelden's Spider II 16TX EEC and Spider II 16TX/2DS-S EEC switches have a high port density and are designed to implement industrial Ethernet technology. Both Spider switches can be used to implement flexible networking solutions for a wide range of industries, including automation, discrete manufacturing and transportation.

The switches have stable metal housing, can withstand extreme heat and cold, and are approved for use in environments with a high explosion risk. A second power supply may also be connected to further increase operational reliability. The switches, which can be mounted on a DIN rail and activated quickly via plug-and-play functionality, are suitable for connecting to the backbone or for networking linear and tree topologies.

The switches each feature 16 RJ45 ports and distances of up to 120 km can be bridged with the uplinks via single or multimode fibers. Gigabit speed ensures that sufficient bandwidth is available even for applications with high volumes of data.

Other features include an extended temperature range from -40 C to +70 C, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), shock and vibration resistance, and a redundant 24 V power supply. The switches also meet the requirements of industrial protection class IP30.
