Certified IEC 61850-3 & IEEE 1613 Industrial Substation Network Switches For Substation Automation Networks

California, U.S.A., January 2020 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions shares smart production solutions to enable the smart factory.

Utilities communication and Substation automation networks requires certified IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 industrial substation network switches for safety, security, performance and investment proof protection of control solutions and systems. Ethernet Direct is among one of the few vendors providing certified IEC 61850-3 devices with field-proven functionality and hardware and best-in-class solutions to protect your wired communication networks suitable for bay level, station level and communication level.

The Process level requires time critical devices supporting time synchronization. The Ethernet Direct HMG DIN Rail series Layer 2 Plus switches would be a great fit.

The Bay level connects to the lower Process level and upper Station level. The Ethernet Direct EMG Layer 2 Plus Rack mount series is usually deployed.

The Station level is the network backbone with core switches in the control center. The Ethernet Direct EMG Layer 3 Rack mount series is ideal with the EMG & HMG series.

Ethernet Direct has been a trusted choice for Engineering Procurement Construction Integrators in the Power and Utilities sectors. Our portfolio ranges from 11-ports DIN Rail switches to 28-ports rack mount Ethernet switches. All products are engineered using “Made in the USA” chipset and components. We guarantee specifications by providing true robust devices built to last for mission critical applications. Ethernet Direct offers ultra-fast self-healing redundancy with less than 10 milliseconds network recovery time based on 250 units connected devices. Advanced software technologies such as IEEE 1588 PTP v2, ITU-T G.8032 / ERPS, cyber security features such as RADIUS, TACACS+, HTTP/HTTPS, SSL, SSH v2, IEEE 802.3z Energy Efficient Ethernet, LLDP, IPv6, VLAN Q-in-Q and more, are available without any compromise or added costs. Industrial profiles such as EtherNet IP, Modbus TCP and PROFINET (optional) are also supported.
