800xA Wired Networks

ABB’s portfolio of wired network equipment includes switches, routers and modular transceivers. The equipment is pre-configured for the use with 800xA. Using this equipment full redundancy can be achieved, and single point of failure avoided.

Wired networks provide a reliable and robust architecture with numerous benefits, including:

  • Pre-defined configurations for the use with System 800xA.
  • High MTBF figures ensures long service life. 
  • Highly reliable Ethernet switches and routers running resilient network protocols dramatically reduce the risk of network failure. 
  • Temperature range of from cold start at -40 °C to operation at +70 °C with no air vents. 
  • Full metal IP40 enclosure with no cooling holes that could allow ingress of dust. 
  • 100% reliable network even when a media break occurs.

Industrial RNRP routers / firewalls specially developed by ABB for System 800xA

Why ABB RNRP routers ?

Increased availability and full redundancy

Redundant Network Routing Protocol (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.

High embedded security

The built in firewall filters out unwanted traffic, leading to a much reduced risk for disturbances and higher availability.

Significantly less maintenance effort

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
