Thanks to PRP and HSR, the new RSP switches are the first to guarantee completely uninterrupted data communications.
The RSP switches from Hirschmann™ are the first to allow uninterrupted data communication, thus ensuring continuous access to machines and systems, greatly increasing their productivity and hence also their profitability.
The switches feature comprehensive security functions to provide all-round protection against network attacks. Since they also support precise synchronization, they can be used to safely network even applications that are subject to stringent real-time requirements.
RSP switches from Hirschmann™ offer eleven ports, three of which can be equipped with SFP transceivers that support Fast (100 BASE-FX) or – optionally – Gigabit-Ethernet (100/1000 BASE-FX). The remaining ports can be used either for 100 BASE-TX or as a combination of four SFP transceivers and four TX ports. These switches are also remarkable for their extensive management and redundancy methods, as well as enhanced security mechanisms. In addition is a version available that supports precise synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2, plus PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR (High-availability Seamless Redundancy).
The RSP switches from Hirschmann™ are optimized for the type of data communication used in the electricity supply industry, because using Ethernet to link the field-level transformer stations of a power supply grid calls for special network equipment which – such as the RSP switches from Hirschmann™ – can guarantee uninterrupted communication in the systems under even the harshest conditions. This is the only way of ensuring that end customers receive an uninterrupted power supply.
They can also be used in many other areas. They offer optimum solutions wherever uninterrupted data communication is of the essence, for example in mechanical engineering, production or security applications.
The new RSP switches from Hirschmann™, with robust hardware and a powerful operating system, are able to withstand extremely harsh environmental conditions. For the first time, the integration of new redundancy protocols allows uninterrupted data communication.
These new techniques, PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR* (High-availability Seamless Redundancy), are based on the international IEC62439 standard and therefore guarantee future security and interoperability. Precision time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 1588v2, synchronizes sensors, drives and measuring equipment. Gigabit Ethernet provides for a fast connection to the backbone, while connections to terminal equipment use 100 BASE-TX – either alone or in combination with 100 BASE-FX.
