Hirschmann RED25 Fast Ethernet Entry-Level Switches

Hirschmann RED25 Fast Ethernet Entry-Level Switches

In addition to support for various redundancy technologies like PRP, HSR, and DLR, the Hirschmann RED25 switches have comprehensive built-in security features. The switches are also customizable based on specific port needs or environmental factors, such as temperature range.

The RED25 family of switches offers maximum flexibility and a future-proof network design. This is an affordable solution for industrial network engineers, system integrators and machine builders working on entry-level applications.

RED25 is an ideal choice for those who need a Fast Ethernet, entry-level redundancy switch designed specifically for operation in extreme environmental conditions.

The features offered with these switches are particularly suited for use in industrial automation applications that require cost-effective, high-end redundancy topologies. RED25 switches are a great fit for automotive, manufacturing and machine building industries.

Other applications in which the RED25 switches can also be used include consumer packaged goods and water and wastewater treatment facilities.

Permanent access to systems and machines is an absolute must for profitable business systems. The RED25 family provides maximum productivity and network uptime. This value stems from interruption-free data communications based on parallel redundancy protocol (PRP) and high-availability seamless redundancy (HSR). Other redundancy technologies like Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) allow the switches to connect to existing networks and Device Level Ring (DLR) redundancy ensures a recovery time within milliseconds. The switches are designed to handle high ambient temperatures and meet precise time synchronization requirements.
