The Hirschmann OCTOPUS 5TX-EEC (P/N: 943892-001) is an IP 67 rated waterproof switch featuring store and forward switching, Ethernet (10 Mbit/s) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbit/s). It also includes 5 x 10/100BASE-TX, M12 D coding, 4 pole, TP cable, auto-crossing, auto-negotiation & auto-polarity. The OCTOPUS 5TX-EEC meets IEEE 802.3 standards and can be used in under the more extreme conditions found outside. It is especially useful in the transportation industry and provides a low cost solution to meeting the needs of your network. Any accessories that are used with this switch may not carry the same certifications/specifications, such as IP rating or operating temperature, of the OCTOPUS 5TX-EEC.

  • (5) 10/100BASE-T(X) port allows for single devices or complete network segments.
  • Frame Switching Functions
    • Store and Forward - only forward valid frames and discards invalid frames
    • Multi address capability - learns up to 1,000 addresses. This becomes necessary if more than one terminal device is connected to one or more ports.
    • Learnt addresses - monitors the age of the learned addresses. The OCTOPUS deletes address entries from the address table which exceed a certain age (300 seconds).
    • Tagging - IEEE 802.1 Q standard designates the VLAN tag to be included in a MAC data frame for the VLAN and prioritizing functions.
  • Functions of the TP/TX Interface
    • Auto polarity exchange - If the receive line pair is incorrectly connected (RD+ and RD- switched) polarity is automatically reversed.
    • Auto-negotiation - a procedure in which the switch automatically selects the operating mode of its 10/100 RJ-45 ports.
    • Auto-crossing - automatically configures its port for the correct transmit and receive pins
  • Additional Functions and Features
    • The OCTOPUS 5TX-EEC will be reset when input voltages falls below a threshold. After a reset it will re-initialize.
  • Display Elements
    • Equipment status - provides information about statuses which affect the function of the entire SPIDER.
    • Power - when lit indicates supply voltage present
    • Port Status - display port-related information.
    • Data & Link status - indicates data traffic and rate
