RUGGEDCOM RS900G

The RUGGEDCOM RS900G is a 10-port utility-grade, fully managed Ethernet switch, providing dual fiber optical Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight fast Ethernet copper ports. Designed to operate reliably in harsh environments, the RS900G 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 combined with hazardous location certification, optional conformal coating and a galvanized steel enclosure allows the RS900G to be placed in almost any location.

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