VCL-MX-XW, Industrial Grade

Ethernet Switch 

IEC 61850-3 (Sub-Station Hardened)

Product Overview

Orion Telecom Networks Inc. offers VCL-MX-XW, Industrial Grade Ethernet, IEC 61850-3 complied Sub-Station Hardened Switch, is a flexible Ethernet Switch that is packaged in a 1U high, 19-inch rack-mountable shelf that can be installed in harsh environments. It requires no external fans or forced air cooling.

This IEC 61850-3 complied switch offers a wide choice of 1+1 redundant power supply options which include 24V DC, -48V DC, 110-125V DC, 110VAC and 240V AC.

VCL-MX-XW Industrial Grade Ethernet Switch offers 8, Fast Ethernet (FE) User Ports which can be selected by the user as 10/100BaseT Electrical or 100BaseFX Optical. Additionally, it has 2, Gigabit Ethernet Network Ports which can be configured by the user as 10/100/1000BaseT Electrical or 1000BaseSX or 1000BaseLX Optical. It is a fully managed Switch that offers 1+1 Ethernet link redundancy and QoS by implementing IEEE802.1p, 802.1Q and Differentiated Services (Diffserv) and packet priority classification protocols for traffic management and optimization.
