SE300 Series Smart Switches for Traffic Control

Basic Management Capabilities at a Fraction of the Cost

Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics
Installing fully managed switches all throughout a traffic management system can be prohibitively expensive. One of our customers realized that their application didn’t actually require all of those management capabilities. Instead, they installed Advantech B+B SmartWorx SE305-T smart switches, which support Modbus/TCP to communicate with SCADA software and SNMP to communicate with NMS (Networking Management System). Although they’re not much more expensive than an unmanaged switch, SE300 series smart switches provide basic management capabilities. They give control engineers full read control for every port on the switch, allowing for remote troubleshooting and diagnostics. If a problem arises, your field technicians won’t have to go hunting for the cause. You’ll know exactly where the problem lies before the truck even starts to roll.
