Optimized with features for both IT and manufacturing environments, the Stratix 8000™ Modular Managed Ethernet Switches are the first of their kind. The result of a joint collaboration between Cisco and Rockwell Automation, this industrial Ethernet switch line uses the current Cisco Catalyst operating system, feature set and user interface, making IT professionals feel at home. At the same time, it provides easy set-up and comprehensive diagnostic information from within the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture.
Users have the benefits of CIP tags and configuration screens in RSLogix 5000 programming software, as well as diagnostic faceplates for Rockwell Software FactoryTalk View HMI software, which is the preferred way for controls and automation professionals to integrate networked devices. Modular and industrially rated, the product line scales from six to 26 ports with options for copper and fiber to meet a variety of applications.
