RSG2300 NC

Product Description


The RuggedSwitch® RSG2300 is an industrially hardened, fully managed, modular, Ethernet switch specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding utility substation and industrial environments. The RSG2300's superior rugged hardware design coupled with the embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides improved system reliability, advanced cyber security and networking features making it ideally suited for creating secure Ethernet networks for mission-critical, real-time, control applications.

The RSG2300's modular flexibility offers 10BaseFL /100BaseFX /1000BaseX fiber and 10/100/1000BaseTX copper port combinations. Optional front or rear mount connectors make the RSG2300 highly versatile for any application and can support multiple fiber connectors (ST, MTRJ, LC, SC) without loss of port density. The RSG2300 is packaged in a rugged galvanized steel enclosure with industrial grade DIN, panel, or 19" rack-mount options.
