The new FL Switch TSN 2300 devices are the first Ethernet Switches for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) from Phoenix Contact. They facilitate the setup of time-synchronous applications, thus ensuring real-time communication and increased availability in automation networks.

With the frame preemption and stream management functions, as well as the precise time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 802.1AS, the switches support the Profinet TSN profile in the first step. They allow a user-friendly TSN configuration via Profinet 2.4 engineering, just as easy as with classic Profinet RT.

In addition, the comprehensive Managed Switch feature set allows universal use of the TSN switches even in classic applications, just like the other Phoenix Contact switches. This makes it easy to migrate today’s network solutions to modern TSN architectures.
