The Allen-Bradley ArmorStratix™ 5700, on-machine switch is built with ruggedized IP67 protection. This Layer 2 managed industrial Ethernet switch can be mounted directly onto a machine or an application in harsh environments.
Getting the full value out of your network is critical, especially in industrial applications where harsh conditions and complex wiring systems are typically present.
To address these challenges Rockwell Automation introduces the Allen-Bradley® ArmorStratix™ 5700 to its existing line of industrial Ethernet switches providing a dependable, rugged solution for networks in extreme environments. IP67-rated for dust and washdown protection, this layer 2 managed switch is ideal for operations where widely distributed applications are required. Expanding the Stratix™ portfolio to include “On-Machine” technology provides connectivity to the network outside of the cabinet, which minimizes cabling and hardware associated with traditional systems. The ArmorStratix 5700 panel mount design demonstrates versatility that is considerate of your limited cabinet space. Providing integration with the enterprise network using Cisco Internet Operating System (IOS), the ArmorStratix 5700 also offers support for up to 24 ports and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. Shipping with a default configuration, this device is optimized for industrial automation
applications. For simplified support during device replacement, a built-in SD card backup is included, storing details for easy change out.By moving the industrial controls and hardware closer to your
application, installation complexity and cost can be reduced for a more economical solution
