Dual-diode securely buffers LAN (Local Area Network) from WAN (Wide Area Network) while transmitting one-way communications (from the LAN to the WAN). In this way, selected data is transmitted from the LAN to the WAN while preventing any destructive incoming data from being transferred in the opposite direction (WAN to LAN). The appliance should be located at every LAN-WAN connection.
SafePath supports the following protocol types (from LAN to WAN): File transfer via shared drive, TCP/IP data streams, UDP data streams, PI® from OSIsoft, and OPC. Both RX-HD and TX-HD are managed by a secure console application connected via RS232 or through a web interface and can be accessed by standard browser from any computer in the LAN. All communication lines to and within the appliance have a capacity of 1 gigabyte.
