The Lynx series consists of layer 2 or layer 3 industrial Ethernet switches, powered by WeOS, the Westermo network operating system. The Lynx switches are the most compact switches or device servers on the market, available with up to 10 Ethernet ports whereof two are 100 Mbit or Gbit SFP transceivers.
The Lynx series is designed for simple use in industrial applications, from the robust DIN rail clip solution to the configurable fault contact and the industrial level of dual power inputs. Only industrial grade components are used which gives the Lynx series an MTBF of up to 677,000 hours and ensures a long service life. A wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70/74°C (-40 to +158/165°F) can be achieved with no moving parts or cooling holes in the case.
The Lynx series has been tested both by Westermo and external test institutes to meet many EMC, isolation, vibration and shock standards, all to the highest levels suitable for heavy industrial environments and rail trackside applications.
WeOS has been developed by Westermo to offer cross platform and future proof solutions. WeOS delivers unique functionality in legacy IP solutions, supporting Modbus Gateway, virtual COM, modem replacement or several options in dual TCP applications.
