The Indura IND-3280 series of switches are among the first dual-stack IPv4/v6 Layer 2 industrial Ethernet switches compliant with international substation IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 Class 2 requirements. The Indura IND-3280 is the first electrical substation switch, designed and engineered exclusively by Transition Networks for Smart Grid and electrical substation infrastructure.
The Indura IND-3280 uses an innovative fanless passive cooling design to achieve exceptional thermal performance. Conventional industrial switch heat dissipation designs do not provide sufficient cooling for the heat generated by SFP modules. SFP modules are often the first major component of any system to fail, due to heat generated during normal operation reaching, and often exceeding, the SFP modules' maximum rated temperatures.
Hazardous locations such as electrical substations, oil & gas production and chemical manufacturing are ideal environments for Indura IND-3280 network deployments. For Smart Grid mission critical applications and networks requiring 99.9999‰ availability, the Indura IND-3280 supports both Precision Time Protocol IEEE 1588v2 and sub 50ms multi-ring failover protection using ITU-T G.8031/G.8032v2 standards. Transition Networks designed the Indura IND-3280 to meet the international substation automation standards, IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 Class 2, and the standards for hazardous oil & gas and chemical manufacturing locations, Class 1, Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2.
