Belden has extended its Hirschmann range to include Ethernet switches from the new RSP family.
These are especially designed for use in the field-level networks of power supply companies, but can also be used in any situation where uninterrupted communication is required.
For example, mechanical engineering projects or drives for production facilities.
These extremely robust fanless switches have eleven ports, three of which can be used for SFP transceivers.
These support Fast (100 BASE-FX) or – optionally – Gigabit Ethernet (100/1000 BASE-FX). The remaining eight ports can be used either for 100 BASE-TX or as a combination of four SFP transceivers and four TX ports.
Additional features of these switches include comprehensive management, diagnostic and filter functions plus a variety of redundancy methods and markedly expanded security mechanisms.
In addition to the standard configuration, Hirschmann also offers a version that supports highly precise synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2, plus PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR (High-availability Seamless Redundancy).
"A modern IT infrastructure not only offers manifold possibilities, it also involves a number of risks, from broken wires to hacker attacks, said Product Manager Jürgen Schmid.
“These new Hirschmann RSP switches give users maximum security and thus uninterrupted access to their applications’ data communications."
