IEC-61850 Ethernet Substation Switch
The SW3 is a Gigabit/Fast Ethernet substation switch specially designed to perform switching functions (L2) and IPv4 routing functions (L3).
Level 2 capabilities enable deployment of big scale LANs when the main requirements are: port density, switching performance, and logical complexity.
Level 3 capabilities offer routing functionality between two or more configured VLANs, with each VLAN being made up of a set of local ports (Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet). The routing process is performed by hardware, that is, at wire speed for unicast traffic.
As a level 2 switch, SW3 brings the necessary capabilities to implement the automation of electrical substations according to the IEC 61850 standard. The SW3 supports the SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 management protocols, the RIPv1, RIPv2, OSPFv2 and BGPv4 routing protocols, the VRRP redundancy protocol, as well as other protocols and services such as LLDP, GARP/GMRP, IGMP, DHCP, NTP/SNTP, TACACS+ and RADIUS.
It can be managed locally and remotely, through a console or a built‑in web server (HTTP/HTTPS), SSH and Telnet server. It is provided in a 19” shelf that is 1 s.u. in height, prepared for rack mounting.
