RUGGEDCOM RS900GP

The RUGGEDCOM RS900GP is a 10-port utility grade, fully managed Ethernet switch, providing dual fiber optic or copper Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight fast Ethernet copper ports, each capable of supplying high power 802.3at compliant power over Ethernet. Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments, the RS900GP 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 traffic control cabinets. The RS900GP offers two fiber optic Gigabit Ethernet ports for creating a fiber optic backbone with high noise immunity and long haul connectivity.

Managed Ethernet switch with fiber optic uplinks and 128-bit encryption
