Minneapolis, MNBeckhoff Automation 's CU2008 and CU2016 Ethernet switches have an optimized housing design that costs 16% less than earlier models. The CU2008 switch ($150) offers 8 RJ45 Ethernet ports while the CU2016 switch ($282) features 16 ports. The robust, slimline devices offer user-friendly installation in a stainless steel and aluminum housing via an integrated DIN rail adapter.

The switches relay incoming Ethernet frames to the destination ports. In full duplex mode, they prevent collisions. They can be used universally in automation and in office networks. Replacing the previous Beckhoff ES series of switches, the CU series switches have the same form factor with identically arranged RJ45 sockets and power connections. LED status annunciators are easier to read because they are located on the RJ45 sockets.

 

The new devices, in eliminating a configuration DIP switch (for which there is generally no need), also ends the risk of configuration errors during installation and use.
