Industrial Ethernet Switches

Case Communications Industrial Ethernet Switches are designed to work reliably supporting mission-critical applications under harsh conditions.

Typically DIN Rail or wall-mounted Switches operate from -40C to +75C without the use of fans.

All Case Industrial Switches are equipped with dual DC Power supplies, for additional resilience. The Non-PoE Industrial Switches operate from 12vdc to 48vdc while the PoE and PoE plus switches operate from a 48vdc power source.

All the Case Communications Industrial switches support Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and MSTP (Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol)

The switches support EAPS  (Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching to create a fault tolerant topology by creating a primary and secondary path for each VLANS. This was developed by Extreme Networks and submitted as RFC 3619.

The switches also support ERPS (Enterprise Ring Protection Switching) which is a standard ITU-T protocol also known as G.8032. This protocol optimises detection and perform as fast convergence. ERPS allows all capable devices on a ring network to communicate.

ERPS Recommendation to provide sub-50ms protection and recovery switching for Ethernet traffic in a ring topology and at the same time ensuring that there are no loops formed at the Ethernet layer.

This ITU-T specification is directly based on and derived from the Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching technology developed and patented by Extreme Networks. G.8032v1 supported a single ring topology and G.8032v2 supports multiple rings/ladder topology.

Industrial Switches – Technology

Industrial Ethernet Switch Installation – Typically Industrial Ethernet Switches are mounted on DIN Rails. For central site or higher-density applications, there are rack-mounted industrial switches.

Power Supplies

Typically DIN Rail mounted switches use dual DC Power Inputs. Generally, rack-mount switches use AC or a mixture of AC and DC Power Sources.

Industrial Ethernet

Ethernet in an industrial environment is often used with protocols that provide deterministic and real-time control. Protocols for Industrial Ethernet include PROFINET, MODBUS/TCP, POWERLINK, SERCOS III and CC-LINK IE.  Many Industrial Ethernet protocols use a modified MAC  layer to provide low latency and determinism.

Industrial Ethernet can also refer to the use of standard Ethernet protocols with rugged connectors and extended temperature switches for use in an industrial environment.

Components used in plant process areas must be designed to work in harsh environments of temperature extremes, humidity, and vibration that exceed the ranges for information technology equipment intended for installation in controlled environments.

The use of fibre Ethernet reduces the problems of electrical noise and provides electrical isolation to prevent equipment damage. Some industrial networks require deterministic delivery of transmitted data. However, Ethernet uses collision detection which makes transport time for individual data packets difficult to estimate, especially as network traffic increases. Typically, industrial users of Ethernet employ full-duplex standards and other methods so that collisions do not unacceptably influence transmission times.

Industrial Switches Redundancy

The Case Communications Industrial Ethernet Switches provide link redundancy using the following protocols.  STP (Spanning Tree Protocol  IEEE 802.1D), RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree IEEE 802.1w ) and MSTP ( Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol IEEE 802.1s). For the quickest self healing time, the switches use Advanced Ring Technology will allow the network to self-heal in 10ms to 20ms.

Some of the Case Industrial switches (Those ending in ‘G’ ) use a new recommendation G.8032 (also known as Ethernet Ring Protection Switching). This is not as rapid as our proprietary ring protection protocols which take 10ms – 20ms, while G.8032 takes approximately  50ms to re-route.

G.8032 provides the same functionality as our previous ring protocols but follows a recommendation which means they should inter-work with 3rd part switches.

All ring technologies provide the following

The avoidance of loops Learning, Forwarding and Filtering Database (FDB) mechanism which is defined in the Ethernet flow function (ETH_FF)

Loop avoidance in an Ethernet Ring is achieved by guaranteeing that, at any time, traffic may flow on all but one of the ring links. This particular link is called the Ring Protection Link (RPL), and under normal conditions, this ring link is blocked.

In proprietary ring architecture, the switch which blocks the traffic to prevent a loop is called the ‘Ring Master’, in G.8032 this is the ‘Ring Protection Link’ (RPL) The RPL is responsible for blocking traffic at one of its ends. If the ring were to fail for any reason the RPL unblocks its port and self-heals the ring.

Any failure along the ring triggers a signal fail message in both directions from the nodes next to the failed link after these nodes have blocked the port facing the failed link. On obtaining this message, RPL unblocks the RPL port. (Note that a single link failure anywhere in the ring ensures a loop-free topology.)

The other Ethernet Ring Node adjacent to the RPL, the RPL Neighbour Node, may also participate in blocking or unblocking its end of the RPL.

The event of an Ethernet Ring failure results in protection switching of the traffic. This is achieved on all Ethernet Ring Nodes. An APS (Automatic Protection Switching) protocol is used to coordinate the protection actions over the ring.

Industrial Switches VLAN’S

Case  Communications Industrial Switches support Static Port and Tagged based (IEEE 802.1Q) VLANS, as well as Q in Q (VLAN Stacking).

Industrial Switches Quality of Service

Case Industrial Switches support quality of service based on industry-standard features such as DSCP, 802.1p, IP Tos etc.

Industrial Switches – Short Form Pluggable

Industry Standard SFPs (Short Form Pluggable) ensure any distance and type of Fibre can be supported, and the switches all support DMI ( Dynamic Management Interface) allowing the fibre to be monitored from a central point with SNMP Traps or e-mails sent in the event of a fibre degradation or failure.

Industrial Switches – PoE / PoE+ – Power Over Ethernet

The Case  Ethernet switches which support Power over Ethernet support both the standard PoE (IEEE 802.3af (15 watts at 48 volts DC)) and PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at (30 watts at 48 volts DC)). This allows the switches to power third-party devices such as Pan, Tilt and Zoom CCTV, Wi-Fi, and Wireless products etc.

Link Aggregation

Case  Industrial Ethernet Switches support IEEE 802.3ad LACP Link aggregation allowing multiple trunks to be bonded to form a single high-speed pipe.

Industrial Switches – Management

All Case Communications Industrial Switches are managed via an HTTP / HTTPS (Browser) Telnet via CLI, SSH V2, SSH or SNMP with the switches sending SNMP Traps to a Network Management System (such as CaseView) as well as most of the switches being able to trigger a local relay port.

Security logon is provided either using the switch’s internal security or a RADIUS server. File management allows Firmware upgrades or backups and also configuration upload and download.
