Westermo Lynx 1300/1400 managed switch certified for use with ABB 800xA DCS

Westermo*The Lynx 1300 GigE switch is available with either one or two gigabit ports. A combination of copper and fibre optic ports is available for specific applications or to reduce installation costs. The Lynx supports a number of ring management recovery protocols to enable fast network reconfiguration. RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) is fully supported, however, for ultra-fast network recovery FRNT v0(Fast Reconfiguration Network Topology) offers network recovery times of 20 mS. The redundant ring topology enhances network resilience against fibre optic or network component failure. In addition the Lynx 1300 unit has management features that include SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and port mirroring to aid network investigations. Unit configuration is achieved using the Windows based tool that enables the switch to be easily configured through any of the Ethernet ports and hence across a large or small network. As with all Westermo devices the real time properties of Ethernet have been maintained in the Lynx by incorporating both layer 2 and layer 3 priority support and HoL (Head Of Line) blocking prevention. The user configurable fault contact has also been enhanced to aid network fault diagnostics. As with all Westermo products the Lynx 1300 fulfils the highest environmental requirements making it ideal for applications where wide temperature, power and EMC specifications are a prerequisite. 0, 1 or 2 GigE ports of TX or FX type – 1000BASE

The Lynx supports a number of ring management recovery protocols to enable fast network recovery. RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) is fully supported on the Lynx platform, however, for ultra-fast network recovery FRNT (Fast Reconfiguration Network Topology) v0 offers network recovery times of 20mS. The Lynx 1400 fully supports multicast filtering, IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) and VLAN for maximising throughput on the network. In addition the Lynx 1400 unit offers basic management features that include SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and port mirroring to aid network investigations.
