For Immediate Release
Long Branch NJ - April 3, 2017
Shore Microsystems, the industry leader in the protection of mission-critical network links, today announced a new Asynchronous RS-232 card for the Network Protection Chassis System. The SM-2701RS card provides advanced redundant switch capabilities to RS-232 signals up to 230,400bps. The SM-2701RS supports switching on disconnected circuits as well as the lack of received characters on a monitored interface. The new card has applications in redundancy requirements on power plants, substations, and process control through compatibility with the DNP3 protocol. The card also can supervise and monitor control leads on the primary and backup interfaces allowing devices to report downstream failure conditions to the SM-2701RS and thereby initiate a switchover to a backup connection.
