Managed Industrial DIN Rail Ethernet Switches - RSP/RSPL/RSPS/RSPE Series
The RSP series features hardened, compact managed industrial DIN rail switches with Fast and Gigabit speed options. These switches support comprehensive redundancy protocols like PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol), HSR (High-availability Seamless Redundancy), DLR (Device Level Ring) and FuseNet™ and provide an optimum degree of flexibility with several thousand variants. The table below will help narrow your selection to the configuration that's just right for your application.
Permanent access to systems and machines is an absolute prerequisite for profitable business processes. The world of automation, however, is changing rapidly. The compact and extremely robust switches in the RSP and RSPE families enable your data communication to keep pace at all times. RSPE devices also allow flexible installations in which the network design can be quickly adapted to cope with changing application needs. Because media modules can be added to the basic switch devices in next to no time, practical and cost-effective solutions are guaranteed.
The RSPS and RSPL switches offer you an affordable alternative to the proven RSP and RSPE switches. Like the "big brothers", the RSPS offers innovative redundancy methods with zero switchover times at a lower port count. The RSPL with higher port count offers increased security with proven redundancy protocols MRP, RSTP and FuseNet™ thus ensuring a maximum level of stability for your production processes.
RSP and RSPE switches are specially certified for the type of data communication used in the energy sector – from power transmission and distribution to power generation from renewable energy sources. By using Ethernet to link the field-level transformer stations of a power supply grid with special network equipment, you can guarantee uninterrupted communication in the systems under even the harshest conditions. In addition to Energy applications, these switches can be used in transportation, road and rail traffic, cable cars, ports and airports. The devices offer optimum solutions wherever uninterrupted data communication is of the essence.
RSPS and RSPL switches can be used anywhere maximum network availability is demanded – even under extreme environmental conditions. These devices enable uninterrupted data communication even in the event of a fault or failure. In the electricity industry, for example, these switches guarantee a reliable power supply to customers, even in case of a serious lightning strike. And in tunnels where the devices are installed, operators can be certain that smoke extraction systems will be reliably activated in the event of fire. They can be an important part of highly available solutions in many other areas too, such as mechanical engineering, wind farms, production or security applications or hazardous environments.
