|Ethernet in industrial environments
must be very reliable as downtime is much less tolerable
in the factory than the office. Harsh environments with
electrical noise and vibrations requires equipment of
very high quality.
Westermo offers an extensive Industrial Ethernet product offering, comprising Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet switches and routers, SHDSL Ethernet Extenders and IP65 Ethernet. Westermo offers a comprehensive selection of SFP transceiver options for expanded data transmission.
What sets Westermo's Ethernet solutions apart is WeOS, Westermo's own operating system platform for its products. ESI provides all documentation and firmware relevant to each product.
|Media Converters offering a conversion from one platform to another. Specifically, serial to Ethernet and Ethernet to Fiber.|
|Fibre optic modems are often used in
data communication systems to bridge long distances at
high data rates. Fibre optic systems are particularly
immune to electromagnetic interference and therefore very
suitable for harsh industrial environments. Westermo
products can transmit data at up to 12 Mbit/s over
distances up to 80 km depending on the fiber type.
Westermo offers point to point and multidrop / ring mode Fiber modems with Profibus capabilities, RS232 capabilities and RS485 capabilities. These fiber modems are now configurable with a conprehensive selection of SFP modules for extended transmission distances and various transmission options.
|Westermo Modems are designed for industrial applications, which means that there are functions built in to them that are especially useful in industrial systems like for instance PLC connection mode and DIP switch settings. The Westermo products have a watchdog function and are galvanically isolated to give reliable communication in harsh environments.|
|The Westermo Wireless products are designed to
very high standards to make them incredibly reliable.
Modems in the 900 Mhz band are availible for the US
Their design allows them to be used in place of copper connections for serial data transfer, on a point to point or multidrop basis, ideal when cabling will be difficult.
The majority of Westermo's wireless products are not licensed for use in the North America. If you are outside of North America and are considering a wireless Westermo product, ESI can provide this product to your country, so long as there is a wireless provider.
|ESI has access to Westermo's entire product line. Therefore, if you don't see it on-line or in our store, ask.|
Westermo provides a full range of data communication solutions for such demanding applications as railways, aeronautics, defence, water treatment, substation automation, roads and tunnels. The staff at Westermo can provide the highest levels of service and technical support to help our customers to choose, configure and install the best solution for each specific application requirement. Our knowledge goes far beyond our own product range; we have a unique competence regarding your environment whether it is on a train, in an aeroplane, on the seabed or in a substation. The Westermo product line includes more than one thousand different types and versions of modems, switches, routers, and converters.
the last ten years Industrial Ethernet has become the
standard within automation solutions found in factories,
process plants, transportation systems and infrastructure
projects. More recently Ethernet has started to be
utilised in alarm, CCTV surveillance and building
Although standard IT equipment could be used for these types of solution more and more companies are seeing the benefit of using industrial Ethernet equipment for these applications. Although initially the price might be higher in the longer term the cost of using industrial equipment will be lower. Industrial Ethernet equipment is optimised for extreme environmental conditions and is designed for longer life cycles and provides functions like high speed network reconfiguration in the event of cable damage.
|Energy (Power & Distribution)|
is a fundamental requirement for todays society. We
need Electricity to power our cities and factories.
Failure of power supply for even a short period causes
chaos and results in significant economic problems.
From generating the electricity from both fossil and renewable sources to distribution to metering of the power data communications is vital. By definition high voltages in cables create electrometric fields that are disruptive to data communications so any networking solution must be designed to operate in these harsh conditions.
Data Communications allow us the control we need to guarantee enough power is generated to meet demand however by creating massive networks we create a risk which must be addressed with adequate cyber security.
the world of factory automation Ethernet has rapidly
replaced serial communications as the preferred method
for communications. All factory automation equipment like
PLCs, HMI, I/O blacks, inverters and drives all now have
the standard RJ-45 connection.
By definition the factory floor is a tough environment for communications with high voltages often being switched inducing electrical fields and transients in both the power and signal lines.
Reliability and fault free operation are a prerequisite in this market as a company's entire production can be put at risk if a network should fail. Robust Industrial Data Communications is the solution.
|Oil & Gas|
energy needs of our planet are escalating by the day and
despite the increase in the use of renewable energy
sources oil and gas reserves will continue to meet the
largest proportion of our energy needs for many years to
Complex process control is needed at all stages of extraction, transport, refinement and distribution of fossil fuels. These processes often occur in harsh climatic conditions and with the constant threat of explosion hence any equipment needs to meet tough standards.
Westermo products are designed to cold start down to -40C and can operate with no cooling at an ambient temperature of 70C. We have also had many of our products tested to ensure they meet the standards required for operation in explosive atmospheres.
|Transportation (Rail, Road, Offshore)|
have many years' experience in both data communication
technologies and railway applications both trackside and
onboard the rolling stock. Our real expertise is in
developing products that can function in the harshest
environments and meeting the toughest approval
EN 50155 is a special onboard standard for electronic equipment that encompasses not just EMC requirements but also shock, vibration extended temperature range and humidity. The Westermo Viper and RedFox series meets this standard fully and have been designed with the highest MTBF figures to ensure long term field operation.
Westermo is familiar with mission critical applications in many industries and has therefore developed products and techniques that meet the many specific needs of the rail industry. The patented Westermo FRNT protocol allows for the fastest ring recovery in Ethernet networks 20 ms for a ring with 200 switches. Our Wolverine range is developed around a technology that allows the creation of Ethernet networks on old installed copper cables that can stretch for tens of kilometres along the trackside.
As road traffic volumes increase worldwide new technologies are being used in traffic management systems to increase both traffic flow and safety. Reliable data communications are vital to keep our ever increasingly busy world moving.
|Water & Wastewater|
water is a fundamental requirement for todays
society. We expect to turn a tap and have clean drinkable
water available for our every need. In our massive modern
cities our waste water must be dealt with quickly and
efficiently to prevent disease and protect the
Modern Water treatment plants must operate flawlessly 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. For this reason these plants now use resilient Ethernet networks as a backbone for communication around a site. Integration of legacy devices into this IP backbone is often a necessity and more importantly remote network access is needed for monitoring purposes.
With the need for remote access via internet connection comes the need for cyber security to ensure the network cannot be interfered with either accidently or on purpose. The modern Water treatment plant has a need for robust data communications solutions.
