The RedFox-7528 Industrial Ethernet switch is designed to be a workhorse, providing performance and robustness today and for years to come. In today's world, many applications combine data, voice, and video, and as a result, high performance and reliability are required. The RedFox-7528 high performance industrial Ethernet switches provide an ideal solution for these large-scale industrial networks.
RedFox-7528 is designed for 19” rack cabinets according to the ETSI standard, which makes it suitable for use in control room networks as well as for cabinets installed along railway trackside installations. In addition to the ultra-rugged IP40 fanless all metal housing, it is equipped with configurable I/O fault contacts, which makes it ideal for easy installation and monitoring in industrial applications.
To ensure long service life and market leading MTBF, only industrial grade components are used. In addition, the switches can withstand constant vibration, extreme temperatures and demanding electrical environments. RedFox-7528 has been tested both by Westermo and external test labs to meet many standards regarding EMC, isolation, vibration and shock, all to the highest levels suitable for heavy industrial environments and rail trackside applications.
Powered by WeOS, the Westermo network operating system the switches are flexible, feature rich as well as easy to install and configure. WeOS has been developed to allow cross-platform and future-proof solutions and can deliver resilient and flexible networks, e.g. the FRNT ring protocol with very fast failover.
Ensuring the security of industrial data communication networks is of paramount importance, especially with the nature of cyberattacks becoming increasingly sophisticated. To reduce risk and increase cyber resilience, the RedFox 7528 has an extensive suite of advanced cybersecurity features. These can be used to build networks in compliance with the IEC 62443 standard, which defines technical security requirements for data communication network components.
