RuggedSwitch™ RS900



The RuggedSwitch™ RS900 is a 9-port industrially hardened, fully managed, Ethernet switch specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding environments.

The RS900 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments found on plant floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. An operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C (-40 to +185°F) coupled with hazardous location certification (Class 1 Division 2) allows the RS900 to be placed in almost any location.

The RS900 is packaged in a compact, galvanized steel enclosure that allows either DIN or panel mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The RS900 provides an integrated power supply with a wide range of voltages (88-300VDC or 85-264VAC) for worldwide operability or dual-redundant, reversible polarity, 24VDC and 48VDC power supply inputs for high availability applications requiring dual or backup power inputs.

The RS900's superior ruggedized design coupled with the embedded Rugged 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 versatility and wide selection of fiber optics allows the RS900 to be used in a variety of applications. The RS900 provides up to three 100Mbps fiber optical Ethernet ports for creating a fiber optical backbone with high noise immunity and long haul connectivity. All RuggedCom products are backed by a five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
