N-Tron N-Ring Self Healing Redundant Network Topology
The switch's ring manager, using N-TRON's N-Ring technology, offers expanded ring size capacity, detailed fault diagnostics, and a standard healing time of ~30ms. The ring manager periodically checks the health of the ring via packets. If the ring manager stops receiving these health check packets, it converts the Ring to a linear bus topology within ~30ms. When all switches in the ring are N-TRON fully managed switches, a detailed ring map and fault location chart will also be provided on the ring manager’s web browser and OPC server to identfy the health status of the ring. N-Link allows the linking of two N-Rings. Up to 250 fully managed N-TRON switches can participate in N-Ring topologies.
