Maximum availability, thanks to network redundancy

PRP redundancy modules with copper and FO connection  

The new PRP redundancy modules enable maximum network availability

The new PRP redundancy modules enable parallel network redundancy without switchover times and thereby increase the fault tolerance in energy networks.

The modules enable the easy design of a parallel, high-availability network, without any configuration at all. At startup, the components must be connected according to the color designation on the device. Diagnostic functions via LEDs as well as a potential-free signal contact also support the design and operation of the parallel network. In order to be used in energy systems, components must be able to meet the demands of extreme electromagnetic, electrostatic, and climatic conditions. These are described in the IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards, which the redundancy modules also fulfill.
