WAGO introduces two new Media Access Control Security (MACSec) industrial managed switches, offering innovative solutions for network security. These new switches allow users to easily implement network encryption within new and existing process control systems.

The 852-1322 switch comes with eight RJ45- 1GB ports. Six of the ports are not encrypted for local communication with 2 of the ports being MACSec encrypted for communication throughout process plant.

The 852-1328 switch also comes with six RJ45- 1GB ports that are not encrypted but have two SPF ports for fiber optic MACSec encrypted communication.

Both devices provide point-to-point network security that protects against numerous threats. They are also hardware based, so MACSec encryption will not slow down the network.

These switches are perfect for those in the process industry with a large plant floors or factories where data needs to be shared over an expansive layout.
