800xA wired industrial network equipment now contains an entirely new range of RNRP routers/firewalls, specifically developed for use in ABB's System 800xA networks using the Redundant Network Routing Protocol (RNRP).
RNRP enables a network architecture with two physically separate networks. In case of a disturbance in one of the networks, the communication automatically switches to the other.
The built in firewall filters out unwanted traffic, leading to a much reduced risk for disturbances and higher availability.
Using routers instead of servers minimizes cost and effort. Routers have a much longer life duration and therefore do not need to be replaced as often, reducing the maintenance and administration effort.
ABB 800xA wired industrial routers:
- 11 port DIN-mounted router (NE870)
- 3 port DIN-mounted router (NE871)
