Managed Switches

Managed Industrial Switch

8x10/100BASE-TX + 2-Slot 100FX/Gigabit SFP 


The INS-8528 is a Managed Industrial Switch specifically designed to suit your heavy industrial environments and contains all the standard features to deploy in automation systems. Engineered with hardened components and enclosed in a rugged IP30 aluminum case, the INS-8528 can operate in wide temperatures from -40°C to 70°C and also has excellent tolerance capability to high vibration and shock.

Robust Switch Performance
INS-8528 is built with IP30 aluminum case, surge and ESD protection to deliver robust performance and withstand extreme conditions in Industrial environments. 

Port-based VLAN, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, GARP and GVRP to ease network planning
INS-8528 supports VLANs to segment large networks into smaller parts and to organize them into separate broadcast domains. 

Code Redundancy
INS-8528 provides a perfect backup solution by using its code redundancy feature with its dual flash. 

Redundant Power system
INS-8528’s redundant power system provides continuous power and data applications. 

Efficient network monitoring and proactive capability
INS-8528 provides traffic management monitoring and analysis protocols such as SNMP and SFP DDMI (Digital Diagnostics Monitoring Interface). 

Comprehensive QoS Mechanisms to Assign Priority
The INS-8528 has comprehensive QoS mechanisms that assign priority to applications and sends only specific dedicated traffic to them.

Proprietary Technology Delivers Redundant Ring and Fast Recovery
Volktek’s proprietary Xpress Ring in INS-8528 rapidly reacts link failures and recovers in less than 10ms.
