RS PRO 8-Port Compact Ethernet Switch

Hardened industrial compact Ethernet 8 Port unmanaged switch from our RS PRO range. They are galvanically isolated Ethernet Ports capable of 10/100 Mbps. The Ethernet switches industrial temperature range is -40°C to +80°C and the dual input redundant power supply with wide voltage range means it can be powered from a USB or on the 24V factory floor. The switch features a tough powder coated aluminium case with die-cast aluminium end covers. Power terminal is removable with numbered pins for easy wiring. Power consumption is optimised based on the status of the link device.. No software is required, you just plug in and connect.

Ethernet switches, also known as LAN (local area network) switches, are an integral part of any computer network interface. Fixed switches have a fixed number of ports and can come in speeds Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps), Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps), Ten Gigabit (10/100/1000/10000 Mbps) and 40/100 Gbps speeds. When choosing the speed, you should consider the network needs of the user and whether they will be transferring large volumes of data. This RS PRO Ethernet switch has a speed of 10/100 Mbps.

Typical Applications:

Industrial hubs are the devices used to connect several Ethernet devices together at one time. They then function as a single network together. They can be used in the following areas:
Automation industries
Energy industries
Machinery & robotics industries
Transportation industries

These RS PRO unmanaged Ethernet switches are suitable for factory floor, in vehicle and marine applications.


The black numbered power terminal block is removable. Two separate sets of power supply inputs terminals are provided, one to +VA and -V and the other to +VB and -V. This provides redundancy; the second power supply automatically takes over in the event of a failure of the first one. If only one power supply is connected then the negative must be connected to one of the -V pairs. The positive can be connected to either the +VA or +VB pins. Power LED will light green when correctly connected.

Pin 1: -V
Pin 2: +VA
Pin 3: +VB
Pin 4: -V
Pin 5: Functional Earth

FAQs What is the difference between managed and unmanaged switches?
Unmanaged switches let you immediately plug and play devises into your network and cannot be modified or managed. They are usually used in home networks and small businesses.
Managed switches allow for greater control and ideal for larger businesses with a large and growing network.
How many ports do I need on my switch?
Switches can have a different number of port configurations. To help choose the right number of ports you should consider the number of users your network supports. In general, the bigger your business and organisation is, the more ports you will require. This RS PRO Ethernet Switch has 8 ports.
