ABSTRACT: With the rapid development of computer network technology, Ethernet technology has been widely used in the field of industrial control. Industrial Ethernet switch is the most ideal and direct products of the industrial control field in upgrading network speed, and it not only can be used as high performance Gigabit LAN access equipment, but can also be used as a convergence layer switch at the department level. In this paper, starting from the market demand it is expounded in detail to development and design on industrial Ethernet switch that satisfies the special field of industrial control applications in the aspects such as environmental adaptability, electromagnetic compatibility, safety and stability etc.
