ICP Electronics Australia has announced the release of the IES-3073GC managed redundant ring Ethernet switch from ORing.
The IES-3073GC managed redundant ring Ethernet switch is equipped with 7 x 10/100 Base-T(X) Ethernet ports and 3x Gigabit combo ports.
The switch features ORing’s patent Ethernet redundancy protocol O-Ring (recovery time < 10ms over 250 units of connection), Open-Ring, O-RSTP and MSTP/RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1s/w/D).
As with all ORing devices, the IES-3073GC is designed to protect mission-critical applications from network interruptions or temporary malfunctions with its fast recovery speed.
One of the most noticeable features of the IES-3073GC managed redundant ring Ethernet switch is that it is equipped with 3x gigabit combo ports. This feature strengthens the device's fibre optic Ethernet connectivity capabilities.
The IES-3073GC boasts a wide operating temperature ranging from -40°C to +70°C, which is ideal for operation in most harsh environments.
Features also include:
- PTP Client (Precision Time Protocol) clock synchronisation
- IGMP v2/v3 (IGMP snooping support) for filtering multicast traffic
- Port Trunking for easy bandwidth management
- DDM (Digital Diagnostics Monitoring)
- SNMP v1/v2c/v3 support for secure network management
All the functions of IES-3073 GC can be managed centrally via the integrated Windows utility software, Open Vision, a full-featured network management software that is bundled with the device. The software enables users to manage and monitor all industrial Ethernet switches on an industrial network.
The IES-3073GC managed redundant ring Ethernet switch is suitable for applications such as surveillance that require additional gigabit Ethernet/ fibre optic connectivity.
