Moxa launches DIN-Rail PT-508/510 series of substation Ethernet switches

Moxa is pleased to introduce the DIN-Rail PT-508/510 series of IEC 61850-3 substation switches. Tailored for the power utility industry, the PT-508/510 series switches provide the highest level of reliability and availability for substation communications thanks to tough EMI immunity, a -40 to 85°C operating temperature range, and redundant features that tackle specific needs and requirements found in power substations. In addition, the switches support Moxa Turbo Chain, a highly resilient self-healing Ethernet technology, making them well-suited for wide, extended power distribution networks.

The PT-508/PT-510 series switches feature Moxa's innovative technology, called Turbo Chain, which provides a highly flexible self-healing Ethernet topology solution. Turbo Chain allows the creation of multiple redundant networks beyond the limitations of current redundant ring technologies, which makes it ideal for complex power utility network connections spread over multiple locations with correspondingly complex wiring requirements. The versatile redundancy technology provided by Moxa Turbo Chain liberates system builders from the costly limitations of conventional ring architectures. Compared with conventional ring topology, Turbo Chain eliminates the need for additional Ethernet ports to form ring coupling paths, as well the kilometres of cabling that are often required.

As with all of the Moxa PowerTrans products, the PT-508/510 series switches are specifically designed for substation environments. In addition, the switches have passed IEC 61850-3 and IEEE1613 certification, and are fully equipped with all of the features specified by the IEC standard, including horizontal communication with zero GOOSE message loss. The PT-508/510 series Ethernet switches support an array of features including an IP40-rated housing, a -40 to 85°C operating temperature range, three or four optical fibre ports, and isolated redundant power supplies (24/48 VDC or 110/220 VDC/VAC).

Product Features
