Triple-speed (10Mbps/100Mbps/1Gbps) Ethernet Layer-2 switch that supports new protocols, providing seamless redundancy for Ethernet networking
The Flexibilis Redundant Switch (FRS) is a triple-speed (10Mbps/100Mbps/1Gbps) Ethernet Layer-2 switch that supports new protocols, providing seamless redundancy for Ethernet networking. FRS is compatible with IEC 62439-3 Clause 5 ”High-availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR)” and IEC 62439-3 Clause 4 ”Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP)”. The Flexibilis Redundant Switch also includes IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) transparent clock functionality. FRS is designed for use in programmable hardware environments (FPGA).
With its 1Gb speed and from 3 to 8 ports it is the highest performing HSR/PRP switch in the market. With FRS no separate RedBox is needed, but devices can be connected straight to the FRS, making it a cost-effective solution. Easy licensing method and free evaluation version are all available, as well as a very useful “Getting Started with FRS” training package. The training will help you to choose the correct functionalities for your needs.
