FL SWITCH EP 7400 series
The FL SWITCH EP 7400 series of advanced modular managed network switches was designed from the ground up to meet the electric power industry’s growing need for a ruggedized, modular, secure platform for networking applications.
Hot-swappable, plug-and-play modules for networking and power ensure maximum uptime and reliability.
Powerful Layer 2 and Layer 3 capabilities, along with hardware-based IEEE 1588 V2 PTP based on the IEC 61850-9-3 Utility Power Profile provides advanced performance and functionality.
Expanding network modules allow the switch to grow as your network requirements evolve.
- Modular chassis provides flexible port and data rate configurability to meet current and future applications
- Hot-swappable network port and power supply modules for maximum reliability
- All-gigabit-capable architecture and the ability to support four 10-gigabit uplinks
- Secure configuration possible through IT-friendly CLI and personnel-friendly web-based GUI
- Limited Lifetime Warranty (LLW) with appropriate Phoenix Contact surge suppression
- Color LCD display provides switch port status
- Supports PTP hardware-based IEC 61850-9-3 Utility Power Profile (V2) with peer-to-peer communication and transparent end-to-end clocks
- VLAN-aware bridging (port-based VLAN, protocol-based VLAN) supports 4000 VLANs
- Layer 3 routing: (Static, RIPv1/v2, OSPF) VRRP v2/v3
- 802.1x Radius/TACACS+ authentication, ACL
- Multiple-level user management, Syslog server/client
- IEC 61850-3/IEEE 1613 for extreme environments
The FL EP 7400 supports RSTP, allowing networks to be configured not only as ring topologies, but as meshed configurations as well. While RSTP can be enabled with default values, it is recommended that users configure these settings to ensure optimized network recovery times.
With IEC 62439-3 Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP), critical infrastructure networks can achieve zero switchover between networks, allowing seamless recovery during a network disturbance. By using a redundancy module, or "Redbox" as shown, users can easily deploy this architecture into their substation network systems to provide maximum network resiliency.
