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.
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).
