RS969 NC

Product Description


The RuggedSwitch® RS969 is an industrially hardened, fully managed Ethernet switch providing dual fiber optical Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight Fast Ethernet copper ports in an IP66/ IP67 rated package for protection against strong jets of water (IP66) or temporary immersion in water (IP67).

Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments the RS969 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 and IP66/ IP67 rated waterproof packaging allows the RS969 to be placed in virtually any location.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced layer 2 networking functions, advanced cyber security features, and a full array of intelligent functionality for high network availability and manageability. Coupled with the ruggedized hardware design, the RS969 is ideal for creating mission-critical, real-time, control applications in any harsh environment.
