A combination of copper and fibre optic ports is available for specific applications or to reduce installation costs.
The Westermo Lynx supports a number of ring management recovery protocols to enable fast network reconfiguration.
RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) is fully supported, however, for ultra-fast network recovery FRNT v0(Fast Reconfiguration Network Topology) offers network recovery times of 20 mS.
The redundant ring topology enhances network resilience against fibre optic or network component failure.
In addition the Lynx 1300 unit has management features that include SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and port mirroring to aid network investigations.
Unit configuration is achieved using the Windows based tool that enables the switch to be easily configured through any of the Ethernet ports and hence across a large or small network.
As with all Westermo devices the real time properties of Ethernet have been maintained in the Lynx by incorporating both layer 2 and layer 3 priority support and HoL (Head Of Line) blocking prevention.
The user configurable fault contact has also been enhanced to aid network fault diagnostics.
As with all Westermo products the Lynx 1300 fulfils the highest environmental requirements making it ideal for applications where wide temperature, power and EMC specifications are a prerequisite.
