This week, Belden released the GarrettCom Magnum 10RX Router at the DistribuTECH Convention and Expo. The 10RX is a highly configurable router as well as a security appliance. The substation-hardened 10RX offers advanced layer 3 networking protocols as well as firewall and secure virtual private networking for heavy duty industrial applications.
The product offers features found in other 10-series products including dual-hot swap power supplies, advanced thermal techniques, advanced firewall security and a mix of Ethernet, serial, and WAN connectivity. But, the 10RX offers many new innovative features to the line. Configurabilty is further extended with up to ten Gigabit Ethernet ports, 16 T1/E1 ports, or 32 serial connections. The 10RX features new and innovative software--the advanced Industrial Network Operating System (INOS) which supports a wide range of routing protocols including RIP, OSPF, BGP.
The 10RX, like all of the GarrettCom and Hirschmann brand products from Belden, offers flexible configurations and the high degree of reliability required for interworking between substations or other mission critical network elements. The 10RX will also increase Belden’s ability to assist in migrating power utility customers, at the pace they desire, from legacy to fully-Ethernet configured communications systems that conform to IEC 61850.
The 10RX Routers are available in both convection-cooled and fan-cooled models and are built using thermal design techniques that result in cooler operation of internal electronic components, leading to longer lifetime and increased availability. The software monitors each power supply and signals when a power supply fault is detected. Power supplies can be readily swapped without interruption to the system.
Best of all, the GarrettCom Magnum 10RX is available now for order.
