Rack mount IEC 61850 Substation Switch Enables A Secure Transmission for ASEAN Power Grids & Digital Substations

California, U.S.A., July 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions shares how insights about industrial rack mount IEC 61850-3 certified substation switch for sustainable energy systems in power applications.

Sustained economic growth coupled with burgeoning energy demand continues to drive the development of power & energy sectors throughout Southeast Asia. The expanding electricity investments in the ASEAN power transmission grids by 2025 will consist of new power lines, upgrade, and modernization to strengthen the supply networks. High voltage direct current (HVDC) technologies and smart grids need to be more resilient and reliable to carry out a more efficient Operations & Maintenance (O&M) for network operators who face various challenges when managing grids. To address the concerns on communication devices for substations, Ethernet Direct offers IEC 61850 certified substation switches to guarantee grid stability, reliability and security. The Eagle EMG-2448GEPRI6 rack mount substation switch comes with 28-port full Gigabit port density designed exclusively for harsh grid environments and wide temperature applications. Some key features are include

Ethernet Direct offers industrial standards core switches to cater the demands of next generation networks with primary focus on speed, flexibility, reliability and future proof. Our carrier class design is tested and engineered to meet or exceed high availability standards and provide ultra fast fault recovery redundancy with less than 10 milliseconds. This ensures a high level of operational performance and resulted in an increased reliance on the network.

Some key features are include:

  1. Qos/CoS/DSCP to increase determinism and critical packet prioritization
  2. Enhanced VLAN for trunk traffic reduction and traffic filtering
  3. Time synchronization technology by means of IEEE 1588 PTP V2
  4. Supports various network security solutions, Port and MAC based IEEE802.1X, RADIUS, ACL, TACACS+, HTTP/HTTPS, SSL/SSH v2
  5. Easy to configure ERPS V2 user interface with recovery time of < 20ms @ 250 units connected while transmitting/receiving data at full network speed
  6. DI/DO
  7. Support EtherNet/IP and Modbus industrial automation protocols
  8. Redundant power inputs and embedded protecting circuit to protect the grid system from input/output voltages and rectifier malfunctions
