Extreme Environment Ethernet Switches

Initially developed for mission-critical applications in the defense, rail, aerospace and sub-sea markets, the RedFox series of high-performance industrial Ethernet switches is based on a proven design that is said to far exceed normal industrial requirements.

This ultra-robust DIN rail mountable unit has a heavy-duty aluminum enclosure for maximum strength, heat dissipation and resilience to extreme levels of electromagnetic interference (300A/m). Able to operate in temperatures between -40 to +70°C (with no internal fans) RedFox has a MTBF of 600,000 hours. Ethernet interface combinations range from ten to eighteen 10/100/BaseTX ports, plus the option of four SPF Gigabit and four 1000BaseTX ports. To ensure the network resilience, RedFox supports STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) and RSTP (Rapid STP), as well as the vendor’s FRNT (Fast Recovery of Network Topology) redundant ring functionality. FRNT is designed to reconfigure a redundant ring network consisting of up to 200 switches within 20ms, regardless of network load. RedFox also features a number of security features.
