Robust, secure and easy to use, Ethernet switches are necessary to effectively design and manage manufacturing and enterprise networks. The Stratix 6000 line of fixed managed switches is designed to help ease deployment of your Ethernet networks on machines and the plant floor with:
- Easy Configuration — With configuration screens in RSLogix 5000, web-based configuration through your web browser, and default switch configuration settings, the Stratix 6000 set up is simple and does not require a network expert.
- Security — Protect your network against unauthorized access using device authentication (MAC ID), turn ports on and off per your security needs, and restrict unwanted access using user name and password authentication.
- Diagnostics and Monitoring — The RSLogix 5000 Add On Profile (AOP), predefined Logix tags, and pre-engineered FactoryTalk View HMI diagnostic faceplates allow for access to network status.
- Simple Maintenance — Replace devices connected to your Stratix 6000 using DHCP per port IP address assignment. End devices simply request their IP addresses upon power up allowing your network to recover automatically.
