The new HiOS 4.0 operating system makes the latest generation of industrial Ethernet switches from Hirschmann™ even more powerful.
The Hirschmann Operating System (HiOS) is well known for providing maximum network availability and data security for efficient production processes. The new, free software version 4.0 now offers the widest range of standard functions and special features for the automation sector by far
Using standard technology, HiOS 4.0 provides static routing functionality for Rail Switch Power (RSP) switches, and dynamic routing functionality for MICE Switch Power (MSP) switches, thus ensuring that Layer 3 technology is available in even tough industrial environments.
HiOS 4.0 software supports various security mechanisms, comprehensive management and diagnostic methods, precise time synchronization and redundancy protocols. As a result, the switches in the RSP, RSP-Expandable, RSP-Lite, RSP-Smart and Embedded Ethernet Switch (EES) families, as well as the modular MSP system, can be used to implement fail-safe networks. And thanks to Manufacturing Message Specification (MMS), these switches become an integral part of applications such as protection devices.
