A standalone device that can be used as a Level 2 hub in standard Ethernet or real-time industrial Ethernet Powerlink networks, the AC808 hub automatically recommends correct transfer speeds and configures the respective channels to them.  With the hub, pin assignments can be crossed for the first channel using a switch, enabling the use of the same type of cable for connections between hubs and between the hub and network station.
