Hirschmann GECKO switches

As one of the smallest managed Industrial Ethernet switches on the market, Hirschmann GECKO switches guarantee reliable data communication and provide security, diagnostic and redundancy functions at an outstanding price, setting new standards in cutting long-termoperating costs


Featuring four to eight Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 Mbit/s) and two Gigabit Ethernet (100/1000 Mbit/s) SFP slots, plus the ability to mount on a DIN rail, the compact dimensions of the GECKO switches require little space. Additionally, any inactive ports can be disabled to protect against possible misuse.

The switches can be managed through Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or via HiDiscovery and Industrial HiVision from Hirschmann. A web interface for HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) deployment is also available. For monitoring purposes, the switches provide diagnostic and documentation options, such as a system log, Remote Monitoring (RMON) and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP). Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) and Quality of Service (QoS) functions are also supported.

For industrial manufacturers looking for a cost-effective way of entering the world of managed switches, the Hirschmann GECKO switches offer simple network management and enhanced network availability.

Potential application scenarios include machine and plant engineering, material handling, robotics and connecting production cells for various industries.

  • Easy installation and handling due to simple configuration and network management software tools, which enable various tasks to be worked on remotely, such as monitoring the health of the network and troubleshooting
  • Space-saving design and increased bandwidth performance with four to eight Fast Ethernet ports and two Gigabit SFP slots
  • Cost-effective and environment-friendly operation due to its minimal power consumption of less than 3 Watts
  • Hirschmann GECKO switches offer a well-designed and intuitive graphical user interface – even on mobile devices – to get more status information from your network.

With their compact, yet robust design, the Hirschmann GECKO switches can be used in a wide range of areas, from solar farms to production lines in the food and beverage sector. Potential application scenarios include machine and plant engineering, material handling, robotics and connecting production cells for various industries. No matter where they are installed, the GECKO switches guarantee reliable data communication.
