The RuggedRouter® RX1500 series is a cost efficient industrially hardened layer 3 switch and router. The RX1500’s modular and field replaceable platform allows customers to select amongst WAN, serial and Ethernet options making it ideally suited for electric power utilities, the industrial plant floor, and traffic control systems.

The RX1500 is hardened to the RuggedRated™ specification which provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and heavy electrical surges typical of the harsh environments found in many industrial applications. An operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C (-40 to +185°F) allows the RX1500 to be placed in almost any location. Key
