Courtesy: PhoenixPhoenix Contact’s Series 7000 advanced managed switches are designed to support the device level ring (DLR) redundancy mechanism. They have recovery times of less than three ms, which means a switch-over can be performed quickly in the event of a failure. This function increases the availability of the network. Up to six non-DLR-capable devices can be integrated into the ring with the 7000 switch. The Series 7000 switches are suitable for use in EtherNet/IP networks because they support the common industrial protocol (CIP). The switches can be directly integrated into the EtherNet/IP control system for seamless configuration and diagnostics. Functions such as IGMP snooping, multicast source detection, and auto-query port for intelligent multicast filtering are also available on the switches to enhance network stability and usage.
