  • PRP Redundant Ethernet for OrionLX™  

    Parallel Redundancy Protocol or “PRP” is a field-upgradeable Ethernet network resilience solution available on the OrionLX with the High Performance “CPX” CPU. With PRP, Ethernet messages are transmitted over two parallel network paths. If either network fails, the message still gets through without delay. PRP is also protocol independent making it an excellent choice for enhancing existing automation designs.
