RuggedSwitch® i800



The RuggedSwitch® i800, or i-Series, is a family of compact, fully managed Ethernet switches designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments. The flexibility of the i800 family allows the user to choose from managed or unmanaged, regular or extended temperature, fiber optical or copper interfaces, and fast or Gigabit Ethernet. With up to nine Ethernet ports, the i800 is the perfect choice for a wide variety of demanding industrial environments such as those found in process control applications (oil and gas, petro-chemical, metals and mining, wind farms).

The i800 is packaged in a compact, die cast aluminum, DIN mountable enclosure for efficient use of cabinet space. Dual 24VDC power inputs increase reliability in case of primary power supply faults. The i800 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments found in industrial applications. An operating temperature range of -20 to +60°C (with optional -40 to +85°C), coupled with hazardous location certification (Class 1 Division 2) allows the i800 to be placed in almost any location.

The i800 features a full array of intelligent functionality for high network availability and manageability. The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced layer 2 and layer 3 networking functions, and advanced cyber security features. The Enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (eRSTP™) ensures very fast network recovery in case of failures ensuring a high availability network and allows any topology from ring to mesh. Numerous other features like VLANs and QoS make the i800 an enterprise class switch in an industrial class package.

The i800 is backed by an industry leading five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support and service.
