Moxa's PT-7828 Layer 3 Ethernet Switch wins Trend100 Products 2008/2009 Award from SPS Magazine

Taipei, Taiwan, Feb 19, 2009—Moxa's PT-7828 IEC 61850-3 Layer 3 switch has been selected as one of the top 100 trend products by readers of the German SPS Magazine, which is a leading industrial automation magazine. The PT-7828 was selected based on its user-friendliness, innovation, and representation of current industry trends.

The PT-7828 is a fully compliant IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 Layer 3 Ethernet switch that belongs to Moxa's PowerTrans series of substation Ethernet switches. PowerTrans switches provide the highest levels of reliability and availability for substation communications, offering superior EMI/RFI shielding, -40 to 85°C operating range, and redundant media and power inputs for harsh substation environments. The PT-7828 supports Layer 3 routing for better network performance on large-scale substation LANs and full-fiber configuration with a maximum of 24+4G fiber ports to support long-haul and EMI immunity communications. To meet the specific demands of power automation voltages, the PT-7828 allows a selection of isolated power supplies in single or dual configuration, including 24 VDC, 48 VDC, 88-300 VDC, and 110/240 VAC. In addition, high priority GOOSE messages can be prioritized using Quality of Service techniques, and multicast communications is limited to the appropriate recipients by supporting IGMP Snooping.
