The RS2 Series of switches offer advanced features such as redundant power inputs and most offer fault relay (triggerable by loss of power and/or port-link). Standard features include 10/100 auto-negotiating and auto-crossing (either patch or cross-over cables will work in the ports), a 0° C to + 60° C operating range (-40 to +70 deg C available), a 24 VDC power input and an average MTBF exceeding 100 years. All of the multimode (MM) and singlemode (SM) fiber optic ports are 100 Mbps and are available in a variety of connector options.
In the automation area, the demands made on data communication via Ethernet differ widely from application to application. They range from simple installations to complex, high-performance networks with comprehensive management functions and extremely high failure tolerance. The RS2 is the perfect switch for every application scenario and is ideal for machine and plant engineering where Ethernet is becoming the communications protocol. In addition, the RS2 has the required certifications for power transmission and distribution, oil and gas and transportation applications.
