RS900G NC

Product Description


The RuggedSwitch® RS900G is an industrially hardened, fully managed Ethernet switch providing dual fiber optical Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight Fast Ethernet copper ports.

Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments the RS900G provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments found in electric utility substations, factory floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. An operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C coupled with hazardous location certification, optional conformal coating and a galvanized steel enclosure allows the RS900G to be placed in almost any location.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced networking features such as Enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree (eRSTPTM), Port Rate Limiting and a full array of intelligent functionality for high network availability and manageability.

The versatility and wide selection of fiber otics allows the RS900G to be used in a variety of applications. The RS900G provides two fiber optical Gigabit Ethernet ports for creating a fiber optical backbone with high noise immunity and long haul connectivity.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced layer 2 and layer 3 networking functions, and advanced cyber security features. Coupled with the ruggedized hardware design, RS900G is ideal for creating mission-critical, real-time, control applications where high reliability and availability is of paramount importance.
