AFS650/655 DIN-rail Switch
Ethernet switches remove the uncertainty from packet networks, preventing packet collision though network division and ensuring unimpeded message delivery, but fitting them into a substation environment can be a challenge. With DIN-rail fittings the ASF650 and 655 can be slotted into the standard cabinet to provide ten ports, supporting optical or electrical connectivity, with three Gigabit Ethernet ports for high-speed connections.
The switch will take a low voltage, DC, supply from 18v upwards, but will happily run from high-voltage DC or AC as available. It also supports a redundant supply to ensure continued connectivity in the event of supply failure.
