By Anthony Capkun
February 8, 2021 – Wago has expanded its line of managed switches, which are designed for use in industrial environments. Each switch includes Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) and Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) for network redundancy, port mirroring, onboard firewall and more.
The switches come with an “easy-to-use, dynamic web-based dashboard” and topology mapping to provide instant updates on network status and system health. This will alert technicians with problems within their system and increase network availability.
Several variants are available: the 852-1812, 852-1813 and 852-1813/000-001 come with 8 RJ45 ports; and the 852-1816 with 16 ports. The 852-1813 and 852-1813/000-001 come with additional fiber optic ports. Additionally, the 852-1813/000-001 comes available with PoE+. All ports have a speed of 1GB.
