Industrial Ethernet switch features scalable managed switching capabilities

24 October 2012

Built with the best of Rockwell Automation and Cisco technology, the scalable, compact-sized Allen-Bradley Stratix 5700 layer 2 managed industrial Ethernet switch meets a broad range of switching capabilities, from entry-level, machine-builder applications through converged or IT-ready integrated systems.

Using the world's leading network infrastructure software – Cisco IOS – the Stratix 5700 switch delivers secure integration of business-critical services and support from the plant floor to the enterprise.

The Stratix 5700 managed switch also simplifies the design and development of machine-level networks through configuration and monitoring tools. These tools help enable easy setup and diagnostics from within the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system – bridging the gap between IT and the automation engineer.

The introduction of the Stratix 5700 switch adds to the broad family of Allen-Bradley switches, which includes the Stratix 2000 unmanaged switch, the Stratix 6000 fixed managed switch, the Stratix 8000 modular managed switch, and the Stratix 8300 layer 3 modular managed switch.

Like the Stratix 8000 family of switches, the Stratix 5700 switch also utilizes Cisco IOS technology. The portfolio contains many popular features that are in use today by IT and controls organizations that deploy standard, unmodified Ethernet, with settings optimized for use in EtherNet/IP applications.

The Stratix 5700 line of switches is currently available with six, 10 and 20 fixed-port configurations. The hardware embeds features such as: IEEE-1588 time synchronization, QoS (prioritization) and Resilient Ethernet Protocol. Additional software features also help improve network performance and troubleshooting, and allow for increased network availability.

Each base model of the Stratix 5700 switch comes with dual power inputs, input and output alarms, console port, fiber-ready SFP slots, DIN rail mount and operating temperature range of minus 40 C to 60 C. Model options include: two gig ports, SD flash card, conformal coating, and two different software configurations for a total of 20 different models to best match machine and end-user applications.
