Lite Managed Industrial Ethernet GECKO Switches


As one of the smallest managed Industrial Ethernet switches on the market, GECKO switches guarantee reliable data communication and provide security, diagnostic and redundancy functions at an outstanding price, setting new standards in cutting long-term operating costs.

  • Quick installation and handling due to simple configuration and network management software tools, which enable various tasks to be worked on remotely, such as monitoring the health of the network and Troubleshooting
  • Space-saving design and increased bandwidth with four to eight Fast Ethernet ports and two Gigabit SFP slots
  • Cost-effective and environment-friendly operation due to its minimal power consumption of less than 3 Watts
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and HiDiscovery/Industrial HiVision, plus a web interface, ensure fast and convenient administration
  • Redundancy protocols like Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) guarantee reliable data communication
  • A range of diagnostic functions ensures fast identification of errors, resulting in smooth production processes
  • Reduced operating costs due to low power consumption
  • Compact design for space-saving installation
  • High resistance to shocks and vibration
  • 24 Volt DC power supply
  • Withstand harsh conditions with an IP30 protection rating
  • Security features like VLAN
  • Industrial protocols like PROFINET
  • Extended operating temperature range from -40 °C to +60 °C

With a combination of managed and unmanaged switches, the GECKO Switches are ideally suited for use in smaller networks, or on the edge of larger installations. They can also be used for carrying video signals or transmitting control data. For industrial manufacturers looking for a cost-effective way of entering the world of managed switches, the GECKO switches offer simple network management and enhanced network availability. Network parameters can be centrally configured using a web interface, while redundancy and diagnostic functions ensure high network availability.

With their compact, yet robust design, the GECKO switches can be used in a wide range of Areas such as:

  • Machine Building
  • Renewable Energy
  • Process Automation
  • Automotive
  • Food & Beverage
  • Material Handling
