Managed Industrial DIN Rail Fast Ethernet Switches – RSPS-Smart


The RSPS-Smart offers you an affordable alternative to the proven RSP switches. Like its "big brother", the RSP-Smart offers innovative redundancy methods with zero switchover times, thus ensuring a maximum level of stability for your production processes.

Extensive security mechanisms protect your network against attacks. Such attacks now also represent an increasing threat to data communication within the automation area. Thanks to precise time synchronization, the RSPS-Smart can likewise be used to reliably network applications with stringent real-time requirements.

  • Uninterrupted data communication - ensures high productivity of machines and systems
  • Cost-effective solution - for maximum availability
  • Precise time synchronization - allows applications to comply with stringent real-time requirements
  • High network availability based on PRP, HSR, MRP, RSTP redundancy methods
  • Comprehensive security mechanisms: Role-based access, port security, SSHv2; HTTPS, SFTP
  • Precise time synchronization compliant with IEEE 1588v2
  • High level of vibration resistance
  • Broad immunity to electrostatic discharges and magnetic fields
  • Operating temperature range from -40°C to +70°C
  • Compact stainless steel housing for DIN rail mounting
  • Six Fast Ethernet ports for twisted pair cables (100 BASE-TX) or alternatively there are variants with two or four SFP bays for (100 BASE-FX) MM, SM, LH transceivers
  • Power can be supplied via 24/36/48 V DC or 110/250 V DC and 110/230 V AC
  • Configuration and diagnosis using HiDiscovery, IHV or web interface
  • Storage of all configuration data and upgrading of operating software via SD card
  • Management via standard web browser and SNMP interface
  • Standards and approvals:
    – Safety: EN 60950-1, cUL508
    – Substations: IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613
    – Hazardous environment: ISA 12.12.01, CSA 22.2 No. 213 (hazLoc)
    – Transportation: NEMA TS2, EN 50121-4

The RSPS-Smart can be used anywhere where maximum network availability is demanded – even under extreme environmental conditions. This is because it enables uninterrupted data communication even in the event of a fault or failure. In the electricity industry, for example, this switch guarantees a reliable power supply to customers, even in case of a serious lightning strike. And in tunnels where the RSP-Smart is installed, operators can be certain that smoke extraction systems will be reliably activated in the event of fire.

The RSPS-Smart can be an important part of highly available and cost-effective solutions in many other application areas:

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Hazardous environments
