Arizona’s Salt river project uses 6K25 fibre switches in substations
To meet the growing power needs of metropolitan Phoenix, SRP is adding generating facilities and transmission lines that will protect SRP customers from market fluctuations and power shortages. SRP is also upgrading its nearly 200 existing substations to feature Ethernet in the control system over a three-year rollout period.
SRP engineers chose GarrettCom’s 6K25 Fibre Switches for the Ethernet LAN in the new Rudd substation. The GarrettCom product line offers high configuration flexibility, and high reliability as shown by the NEBS certifications which is appreciated by the telecommunications background of many of the SRP engineers. NEBS testing fulfils the criteria deemed necessary by the telecommunications industry to support mission-critical central office applications that demand high reliability, electromagnetic radiation immunity, and sustained operation under temperature stress among other tough conditions.
