The Fast Track Switch family from HARTING now boasts three members. The configurable FTS 3100s-A combines Fast Track Switching functionality with extremely simple operation, because the unmanaged switch can be set up with a free software tool. For example, this tool allows the speed, duplex settings and mirroring to be defined per port. The preset PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP profiles can also be selected. The switch recognizes these automation profiles and accelerates them in cut-through mode, allowing them to overtake non-automation protocols.
