MS20/30 configurable, modular switches give you the flexibility to work in a variety of network topologies.



The MS20 Layer 2 Switches have up to 24 Fast Ethernet ports and are available in a 2- and 4-slot version (4-slot can be expanded to a 6-slot using the MB backplane extension). They require the use of hot-swappable media modules for any combination of copper/fiber fast device replacement.

The MS30 Layer 2 Switches have the same functionalities as the MS20 switches, with the exception of an added slot for a Gigabit Media Module. They are available with Gigabit uplink ports; all other ports are Fast Ethernet. The ports can be any combination of copper and/or fiber.

  • Maximum degree of flexibility – resulting from the modular architecture and building block principle of the design. Simply snap them onto a DIN rail and plug the media modules onto the switch
  • Broad array of options – choose from a huge range of media modules to combine functions to meet your specific needs and suit any application
  • Highest operating reliability – keep your high-volume data networks fully available, even under mission-critical conditions
  • Up to 24 Fast Ethernet and 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Up to 24 PoE ports (external power supply)
  • Modular setup with hot swappable ports and Layer 2 capabilities
  • High-grade metal/aluminum housing for mounting on a DIN rail
  • Optionally extended temperature range from -40°C to +70°C (standard is from 0°C to +60°C)
  • Click-in mechanism for tool-free module assembly
  • Simple configuration and diagnosis using HiDiscovery, HiView, Industrial HiVision or web interface
  • Diversity of standards and approvals
