Belden presents the industrial Fast Ethernet entry-level switches of the new RED25 family, These switches are designed for automation applications that require cost-effective and highly available redundant network solutions. Thanks to the redundancy functionality, these switches are well suited for use in the automotive, manufacturing and engineering industries.
In these areas, more and more facilities are used that are part of the network infrastructure. When errors occur in these plants, it usually happens within the network causing production outages. The redundancy functionality of RED25 switches, which ensures uninterrupted data communication, can limit the impact of these errors, minimize the risk of machine downtime, and increase equipment productivity.
In addition to various redundancy techniques, the RED25 switches support extensive security features that provide reliable protection against network attacks and operator errors. In addition, the ports and other features of the switches, such as the temperature range, can be adapted to different requirements.
The RED25 switches ensure maximum productivity and network availability through uninterrupted data communication based on Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) and High Availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR). With additional redundancy techniques such as Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Device Level Ring (DLR), and Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP), the switches can be integrated into existing networks. In addition, they are designed for high ambient temperatures and meet the requirements for precise time synchronization.
