New MSP30 switch delivers maximum productivity at all times
Belden has extended its range of Hirschmann MSP30 configurable modular rail switches for mission-critical applications by adding the managed MSP30 Layer 3 switch. This new switch provides extensive routing functions that enable communication between physically separated networks. It also supports unique security functions that guarantee all-around protection for the network and deliver maximum productivity at all times. Last but not least, standard redundancy protocols permit network segmentation into sub-rings, enhancing network availability even further.br:
Maximum network availability
The new MSP30 switch sets the standard for network availability, while its modular design allows for flexible and cost-effective solutions.
A range of security functions
The MSP30 Layer 3 software offers a combination of extensive routing and security functions that make this modular switch the most powerful industrial Ethernet system for DIN rails.
Suitable for harsh environments
Thanks to its ruggedized design, the device is suitable for use in harsh conditions near the shop floor, facilitating direct routing to other production floors without the need for a backbone router.
Flexible and cost-effective
- Problem-free adaption to the most varied network topologies.
- Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support allows terminal equipment to be powered straight from the data line without the need for additional power packs or extra cables.
Using standard technology, HiOS 4.0 provides static routing functionality for Rail Switch Power (RSP) switches, and dynamic routing functionality for MICE Switch Power (MSP) switches, thus ensuring that Layer 3 technology is available in even tough industrial environments.
HiOS 4.0 software supports various security mechanisms, comprehensive management and diagnostic methods, precise time synchronization and redundancy protocols. As a result, the switches in the RSP, RSP-Expandable, RSP-Lite, RSP-Smart and Embedded Ethernet Switch (EES) families, as well as the modular MSP system, can be used to implement fail-safe networks. And thanks to Manufacturing Message Specification (MMS), these switches become an integral part of applications such as protection devices.
