Extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 redundancy features, combined with other highlights such as NAT and firewall, not only guarantee maximum data
security but also make it easy to integrate your production facilities into the network. In addition, EAGLE One routers can be used in almost any
environment, even Ex areas. Its unique “Firewall Learning Mode” enables easy and smooth commissioning, by allowing you to configure rules based on detected network traffic patterns.
With the EAGLE One, you can now choose an industrial security router with an optimal price performance ratio that offers you all-round protection for your data communications. Extensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 redundancy functions ensure that, in the event of a fault, your system can switch over to a hot standby unit. The security router can also reliably safeguard your networks or segment them into separate security zones under the defense-in-depth concept. In addition, it offers you the option of using NAT (network address translation) and Router redundancy to provide your production cells with redundant backbone connections. The configuration and diagnostic features of the EAGLE One also leave nothing to be desired. In addition to the offline configuration tool and web interface, this is guaranteed by such Hirschmann tools as Industrial HiVision, HiView and HiDiscovery.
In Layer 2 mode, the industrial security router EAGLE One – which supports static IPv4 routing and Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbit/s) – is transparent to redundancy protocols such as RSTP or MRP, including link error messages for a redundant ring coupling. In Layer 3 mode, it provides not only router redundancy but also stateful firewall and 1:1 NAT. The available transmission and encryption standards include PPPoE, PPP for dial-up modem, IKEv1/v2, IPsec and NAT. The security mechanisms include stateful packet inspection firewall and VPN. VPN connections can be controlled via digital input, which means that they can easily be integrated into remote service concepts. Other features of this security router include extensive management facilities and diagnostic tools, a robust metal housing for DIN rail mounting, and a redundant power supply for both DC and AC. There are two available EAGLE One designs, with operating temperature ranges from 0°C to +60°C or from -40°C to +70°C. In addition, there are variants for twisted-pair cables or multimode fibers, as well as with a variety of approvals (e.g. ATEX, IEC 61850-3 and EN 50121-4).
The robust design of the EAGLE One enables it to withstand the harshest environmental conditions and it can be used wherever maximum data security is called for. This makes it the ideal industrial security router for mechanical and plant engineering and industrial automation, for example. Other potential areas for its versatile possible uses include the transportation sector, with applications ranging from road and rail transport right through to shipping. Indeed, the EAGLE One has been certified by Germanischer Lloyd for this very purpose. Since this security router is also approved for substations (IEC 61850-3) and for potentially explosive environments (ATEX and ISA 12.12.01 HazLoc), it can also be used in the oil and gas sector as well as in power transmission and distribution systems and such renewable energy applications as offshore platforms and wind farms.
EAGLE One is a powerful new member of the EAGLE family, which has become the epitome of industry-standard firewall systems in recent years. This industrial security router, which ensures maximum data security for production networks, is a combination of the familiar proven EAGLE20 software with state-of-the-art hardware. Thanks to its reduced power consumption, it also offers significantly lower operating costs. In addition, the extended operating temperature range of the EAGLE One means that it can often be used without additional
air-conditioning equipment. A further plus is its approval for use in potentially explosive environments. This means that even more industrial sectors, including oil and gas, can now benefit from EAGLE’s proven security technology.
The EAGLE One industrial security router is a new milestone for data security in automation. With a unique range of services, it can provide all-round protection for your networks – an essential prerequisite for smooth production processes.
