sCon with ring redundancy

Ethernet switch HARTING sCon with ring redundancy

High availability without management overhead

HARTING’s sCon product family is the first to offer ring redundancy on the basis of unmanaged Ethernet switches that are connected into a ring. This achieves high system availability, while simplifying the configuration and operability in the network. Sound network knowledge is not needed for configuring the redundancy, because it can easily be configured over a USB port, unlike solutions with unmanaged switches that have been available until now.
In addition to use in ring redundancy, the sCon also has the function of parallel redundancy. These two functions represent a distinct advantage over other unmanaged Ethernet switches and form an economical alternative to redundancy on the basis of switches with management.
