RSG2100P NC

Product Description


The RuggedSwitch® RSG2100P is an industrially hardened, Power Over Ethernet (PoE) enabled, fully managed, modular, Ethernet switch specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding utility substation and industrial environments. The RSG2100P’s superior rugged hardware design coupled with the RuggedSwitch® 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.

The RSG2100P comes standard with 4 10/100BaseTX 802.3af (PoE) compliant Ethernet ports and offers modular flexibility of up to 15 additional Ethernet ports including 10BaseFL / 100BaseFX / 1000BaseX fiber and 10/100/1000BaseTX copper port combinations. The RSG2100P is highly versatile and can support multiple fiber types and connectors (ST, MTRJ, LC, SC) without loss of port density.

The RSG2100P is an ideal solution to power and connect several Ethernet devices (such as IP phones, video cameras, and wireless access points) where AC power is not available or cost-prohibitive to provide locally.
