The FL SWITCH EP 7400 series of advanced modular managed network switches provides an adaptable platform to
meet the electric power industry’s increasing requirements for scalable network performance, uptime, and security.
The modular 19" rack-mount switch is hardened for areas heavily affected by EMI, such as switchgear, transformer stations,
and local substations. The switch works reliably under extreme environmental conditions (-40°C to +75°C / 85°C) and
complies with the IEC 61850-3 Ed 2, and IEEE 1613 specifications. The expandable “all gigabit capable” architecture
combines cost-effective answers for near-term needs with upgrade paths for port quantity/bandwidth and functions. A
powerful Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature set with hardware-based IEEE 1588 V2 PTP synchronization based on the IEC
61850-9-3 Utility Power Profile provides extensive options to meet changing performance and security needs.
The 28-port switch has 4 module slots. 3 slots accept 10/100/1000Mbps port modules (up to 8 ports) for device
connections, and a 4th slot supports a 4-port SFP module with 1 or 10 Gigabit uplinks for device connections. SFP module
options provide further single-point TX/fiber connection customization, while allowing for electrically isolated and secure
communication lines between the control house and equipment throughout the station. Power is provided by redundant
modular power supplies. The modules are designed for power source flexibility (AC/DC) and allow hot-swappable
replacement for uninterrupted 24/7 operation.
