MACH4000 family also support static and dynamic unicast routing as well as multicast routing, and router redundancy.



The Backbone switches in the MACH4000 family are equipped with 8 or 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports as standard. By adding additional hot-swappable 8-port media modules, the port density can be increased to 24 or 48.

Depending on the model of switch – 5 versions available – three 10 Gigabit interfaces are also provided.

  • Future-proof backbone solutions due to large bandwidth and effective layer 2 and layer 3 routing functions
  • Redundancy methods such as HIPER Ring, MRP or Link Aggregation ensure fast reconfiguration in the event of error, thus guaranteeing smooth data communication
  • Convenient network administration using Industrial HiVision management software from Hirschmann
  • USB interface for ACA 21 auto-confi guration adapter which can be used to save all configuration data as well as to conveniently upgrade the operating system
  • Classic Switch Software provides enhanced software plus extended diagnostic, filter properties, security and redundancy features
  • Application flexibility, owing to hot-swappable media modules (including efficient powering of devices via PoE)
  • Highest level of data security, with numerous security mechanisms
  • Five different versions with high Gigabit Ethernet port density and – depending on the individual model – additional 10 Gigabit interfaces
  • Robust and compact metal housing
  • High resistance to shock, vibration and electromagnetic interference
  • Industry-specific certifications, making them suitable for use in such areas as transformer substations (IEC 61850), railways (EN 50121-4), and onboard ships (GL)
  • Operating temperature range from 0°C to +60°C
  • IP20 protection rating
