ESA HIDRA: Industrial IoT Switches

HIDRA switches with industrial case complete ESA’s range of Industry 4.0 solutions. Available in unmanaged, managed at Layer 2 and Layer 3 variants, these devices offer protocol integration for redundancy, security features and simplified programming.

Here are the main features.

Advantages of the HIDRA industrial switch

IIoT solution

HIDRA industrial switches are designed according to the principles of the Internet of Things to support smart manufacturing at all levels. This translates into advantages such as the ability to automatically send alarms in the event of network connection problems to prevent breakdowns and downtime.

IT security

Cybersecurity is essential in an increasingly digital industry, where production data and sensitive information are constantly exchanged. ESA has introduced features such as choosing users and PCs that can access the network, and the creation of virtual LANs VLANs to segment the network into subgroups without modifying the cabling.

Communication stability

HIDRA industrial switches stand out for the reliability of the connection, thanks to the redundancy for ring network topologies. In this way, even in the event of a failure, the availability of the network is guaranteed without interruption in the plant’s activity.

Industrial robustness

Adaptability to any industrial environment is another of the benefits of HIDRA. With IP67 waterproof protection, extended temperature range between -40 ° C and + 70 ° C, and a robust industrial-grade design, this range works perfectly even in critical environments and abroad.
