Westermo RedFox-5728 switch for the most demanding substation automation applications.

Westermo introduced its RedFox-5728, a managed industrial Ethernet switch designed for tough environments, including the high EMI levels and extreme ambient temperatures. The switch meets all test levels for Class 2 fulfillment, which do not allow the loss of a single transmission package, even during the highest EMI bursts. The switch has also attained KEMA type test gold certification, ensuring zero downtime, communication losses, delays or errors. The RedFox-5728 has been designed to run efficiently from either one or two power inputs, with dual internal power supplies fully isolated from each other and all other interfaces. Suitable for 19-inch rack installations, the 28-port switch has all connectors located at the front with a range of port configurations, customisable with SFP transceivers. Available with both layer 2 and layer 3 functionality, the RedFox-5728 is powered by the WeOS operating system.
