FL Switch TSN 2300 devices from Phoenix Contact facilitate the setup of time-synchronous applications for real-time performance.
The new FL Switch TSN 2300 devices are the first Ethernet Switches for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) from Phoenix Contact. They facilitate the setup of time-synchronous applications, thus ensuring real-time communication and increased availability in automation networks.
With the frame preemption and stream management functions as well as the precise time synchronization in accordance with IEEE 802.1AS, the switches support the Profinet TSN profile in the first step. They allow a user-friendly TSN configuration via Profinet 2.4 engineering, just as easy as with classic Profinet RT.
In addition, the comprehensive managed switch feature set enables universal use of the TSN switches even in classic applications, the same as other Phoenix Contact switches. This makes it easy to migrate today’s network solutions to modern TSN architectures.
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) describes a series of standardized transmission mechanisms for data in Ethernet networks that allow deterministic real-time communication, regardless of the protocol. Precise time synchronization facilitates the combination of hard real-time demands and classic IT services in one network – the basis for network convergence.
These managed TSN switches from Phoenix Contact facilitate the setup of applications with precise time synchronization, thus ensuring real-time communication and increased availability in a user’s automation network.
