Optimized with features for both IT and manufacturing environments, the Stratix 8000™ Layer 2 Modular Managed Ethernet Switches are the first of their kind. The result of a joint collaboration between Cisco and Rockwell Automation, this industrial Ethernet switch line uses the current Cisco Catalyst operating system, feature set, and user interface, making IT professionals feel at home. At the same time, it provides easy set-up and comprehensive diagnostic information from within the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture.

The Allen-Bradley Stratix 8300™ managed switch extends the Allen-Bradley Stratix 8000 industrial switch family to provide Layer 3 routing capability. As a full-featured Layer 3 switch, the new Stratix 8300 offers static, dynamic, multicast, redundant, IPv6 and policy-based routing and VFR-Lite virtualization. This allows for maximum flexibility in providing secure segmented architectures for industrial Ethernet applications.

Users have the benefits of the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) interface for predefined Logix tags and configuration screens in RSLogix 5000 programming software, as well as diagnostic faceplates for Rockwell Software FactoryTalk View HMI software, which is the preferred way for controls and automation professionals to integrate networked devices. Modular and industrially rated, the product line scales from 6 to 26 ports with options for copper and fiber to meet a variety of applications.

Expansion Modules

Copper, fiber, SFP, and power over Ethernet expansion modules can be added to a Stratix 8000/8300 system. Copper and Fiber expansion modules can be combined to provide additional copper and fiber ports on your system. SFP Expansion modules can add up to 12 fiber ports with the ability to mix and match multimode and single mode SFPs. Power over Ethernet ( PoE) modules pass electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless access points.
