Should a failure occur within a ring network, Westermo's FRNT protocol reconfigures the network to ensure the process can continue. This helps to minimize any disruption to operations and ensure resilient networks can be constructed. RedFox has a power range of 19 to 60 V dc on dual power inputs and has an operating temperature range of -40 to +70 C (-40 to +158 F) making it suitable for extreme environmental conditions. It has no moving parts or cooling holes in the aluminum enclosure this maximizes the reliability of the product, providing an exceptional mean time between failure of up to 388,000 hours for ATEX/IECEx-approved models.
