Westermo’s Lynx and RedFox switches offer multiple fibre ports and extended cybersecurity protection.
Westermo has developed a next generation industrial Ethernet switch platform designed for handling big data and IIoT applications. Powered by the WeOS operating system, the line includes the Lynx 5512, a 12-port switch, and the RedFox 5528, a 28 Gigabit port switch for aggregating large industrial networks over long distances. The Lynx 5512 offers complete layer 2 functionality and increasing layer 3 functionality. The device has four SFP fibre ports and is suitable for operation in temperatures ranging from -40 to +74°C without the need for cooling. The RedFox 5528 also offers full layer 2 functionality and expanding layer-3 functions, as well as a redundant power supply and up to 16 Gigabit fibre ports. Both switches have industrial, trackside and marine approvals and offer extended cybersecurity and time synchronisation IEEE 1588v2 applications.
