Full Gigabit Managed OCTOPUS IP67 PoE Ethernet Switches

The Full Gigabit OCTOPUS IP67 Ethernet switches offer a powerful, yet economical, solution for industrial engineers seeking to optimize Network performance in harsh, condensed operating spaces.


The Full Gigabit managed OCTOPUS PoE switches are enclosed in a L-shaped IP67 housing, reducing space for cabling while maximizing bandwidth, even in harsh settings.

With Gigabit Ethernet on all ports, the Full Gigabit managed OCTOPUS PoE Switches are an evolutionary step in meeting real-time data demands with high-speed connections in condensed industrial spaces.

  • Maximize network Performance and guarantee highspeed connections with full Gigabit Ethernet Options on all ports
  • Power connected devices up to 60 W through PoE with standard voltage of the switch
  • Ensure network reliability under extreme conditions with vibration and waterproof IP67 housing design
  • Save precious operating space with L-shaped housing for reduced cabling space and IP67 protection for cabinet-less mounting
  • Full Gigabit Ethernet switch and router in IP67 housing
  • 120 W Power over Ethernet with optional PoE supply
  • Configurable feature sets including three housing sizes for 8, 16 or 24 ports
  • HiOS software up to Layer 3 advanced for switching and routing
  • Power supply variants include 24 V DC, 110 V DC, 110 V AC and 230 V AC
  • IP67 and IP65 protection degree
  • Vibration-proof M12 connectors
  • Extensive operating temperature range (-40°C to +70°C)
  • Rail approvals for safe usage onboard, as well as along tracks, including EN 50121-4, EN 50155, EN45545-2

Built in compliance with international train standards, the Full Gigabit OCTOPUS switches from Hirschmann are ideal solutions for industrial engineers needing a high-end switch for use onboard trains and alongside tracks.

The switches are also well-suited for applications requiring superior data transfer rates, such as high-Definition IP cameras in production and embedded quality control, as well as situations where devices need to withstand extreme temperatures and exposure to vibration and dust.

The Full Gigabit OCTOPUS switches are designed for a variety of industrial markets, including:

  • Transportation
    - Mass Transit Systems
    - Traffic Control Systems
    - Rail-rolling Stock
    - Railway
    - Train Stations
  • General Manufacturing
