Industrial automation and process control
■ Din-rail industrial L3 managed switches DS612 are deployed on highly automated production lines not only collecting data from different types of measurement/monitoring devices, e.g. time sensor, electricity meter, PLC, IP-video surveillance cameras, etc., but also providing reliable performance and seamless connectivity by means of Ring and Chain redundancy functions.
■ DS612 is equipped with 8 Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports for connecting to industrial automation system parts and 4 Gigabit SFP ports for uplink connection with Control Centers.
■ Except for high speed criteria, there is also a requirement for rugged design for sustaining harsh environments: DS612 successfully overcomes high electromagnetic interference and smoothly operates within wide -40~75°C temperature fluctuations.
■ Moreover, dual redundant 10.5~60VDC power input, network access control, advanced cyber security of DS612 ensure security and availability of industrial automation network.
■ Supporting industrial standard non-proprietary Ethernet/IP protocol allows combining with existing IT infrastructure with full capability of network scalability.
■ L3 routing functionality provides routing between different subnets and VLANs on large industrial Ethernet LAN.
■ High quality of fiber optical data transmission is guaranteed by digital diagnostic monitoring (DDM) function which allows monitoring real-time parameters of the fiber optic transceivers.
■ RS628 is equipped with 28 Full Gigabit ports for increased bandwidth which makes possible the receiving and transmission of large amounts of video and other types of industrial automation data.
■ Because of remote locations of Control Centers between each other and production sites, WAN connectivity is often used; consequently, there appears an increased threat of rogue’s server access to secret company’s data. Cyber Security functions ensure network data security and protect from cyber-attacks.
■ High network reliability is provided by wide -40~85°C operating temperature, isolated power inputs, and Redundancy functions integrated in RS628.
■ Full featured management set of RS628 includes VLAN, IGMP Snooping, Rapid Spanning Tree, DHCP server capabilities, SNMP management, and traffic prioritization.
■ RS628 supports Precision Time Protocol for sub-microsecond ranged time synchronization of distributed clocks over Ethernet, which is ideally suitable for deployment of RS628 in industrial measurement and control automation systems.
