RuggedRouter RX1100



The RuggedRouter® RX1100 is an industrially hardened advanced cyber security appliance with integrated router, firewall, VPN and Intrusion Detection functionality (IDS).The RX1100 can be used to establish an electronic security perimeter around critical cyber assets found in control and automation systems, in order to prevent the disruption of operations by accidental or malicious acts. Ideally suited for electric power utilities, the industrial plant floor, and traffic control systems, the RX1100 is designed to protect and secure mission-critical networks connected directly to the Internet, or within a company's Wide Area Network (WAN) or Local Area Network (LAN).

The RX1100 includes security functions such as full IPSec Virtual Private Networking (VPN), firewall capabilities with the capacity to securely connect hundreds of remote sites across a Wide Area Network, and Intrusion Detection Services for performing real-time network traffic analysis and packet logging on IP networks. Also, when used as part of the RuggedCom Gauntlet solution, the RX1100 helps electric utilities comply with NERC CIP cyber security requirements.

The modular architecture of the RX1100 allows customization of the number and types of Ethernet and WAN ports. Integrated modem and GPS time synchronization options are also available. The RX1100 is hardened to the RuggedRated™ specification which provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and heavy electrical surges typical of many harsh environments found in many industrial applications. An operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C (-40 to +185°F) allows the RX1100 to be placed in almost any location.
