The AC808 Ethernet hub is a standalone device that can be used as a Level 2 hub in standard Ethernet or real-time industrial Ethernet Powerlink networks. It is suitable for both 100 MBit/s (Fast Ethernet) and 10 MBit/s networks. The hub automatically recognizes the correct transfer speed and configures the respective channels accordingly.
The Ethernet connections are made using RJ45 connectors. Pin assignments can be crossed for the first channel using a switch, enabling the same type of cable for a connection between hubs (hub-hub) and between a hub and a network station. The hub can be installed horizontally or vertically on the mounting rail. It also has fastening possibilities on the sides for direct mounting.
