FL SWITCH EP 7400 series

FL SWITCH EP 7400 series

Combining scalable network performance with a highly reliable and secure platform, the FL SWITCH EP 7400 sets the benchmark for network switch performance in today’s digital substation environments.

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.

Applications

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.
