RS900L NC

Product Description


The RuggedVDSL RS900L is an 8 port industrially hardened,fully managed Ethernet switch supporting Ethernet over VDSL (EoVDSL) allowing up to 5km LAN segments over telephone grade cable at up to 35Mbps. The RS900L has one EoVDSL port allowing for aggregation of Ethernet enabled devices at remote locations back to the central control room. It is the perfect solution for bringing Ethernet networking to applications where telephone wiring is already present thus saving the considerable cost of installing new network cabling.

Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments the RS900L 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 RS900L to be placed in almost any location.

The RS900L is packaged in a compact, galvanized steel enclosure that allows either DIN or panel mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The RS900L provides an integrated power supply with a wide range of voltages (88-300VDC or 85-264VAC) for worldwide operability or dual-input, reversible polarity, 12VDC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supply inputs for high availability applications requiring backup power inputs.

The RS900L’s superior ruggedized design coupled with the embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides improved system reliability and advanced networking features making it ideally suited for creating Ethernet networks for mission-critical, real-time, control applications.

All RuggedCom products are backed by a five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
