The AFS660 switches from Hitachi Energy are optimized for the data communication of eletrical utilities. With their robust hardware and powerful operating system they are able to withstand extremely harsh environmental conditions. For the first time, the integration of the redundancy protocols PRP and HSR allows uninterrupted data communication and therefore guarantees the reliability and interoperability of the system.
Precision time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 1588v2, synchronizes sensors, drives and measuring equipment. Gigabit Ethernet enables a fast connection to the backbone, while connections to terminal equipment are made via 100 BASE-TX – either alone or in combination with 100 BASE-FX.
