RuggedMC RMC



The RuggedMC™ is an industrially hardened fiber optical media converter specifically designed to operate in harsh environments such as those found in electric utility substations and factory floors. The RuggedMC™ provides industrial strength Ethernet copper-to-fiber media conversion allowing for 10BaseT-to-10BaseFL and 100BaseTX-to- 100BaseFX over SingleMode or MultiMode fiber optics.

The RuggedMC™ is specifically designed to meet the same EMI immunity and environmental requirements as mission critical protective relaying devices in accordance with the newly issued IEC 61850-3 (2002) and IEEE 1613 (2003) standards for communications and networking equipment in electric power utility substations as well as NEMA TS 2 (1998) EMI and environmental requirements for traffic control equipment. The reliability of the RuggedCom product families exceeds those of commercial devices by having no rotating mechanical parts (i.e. no cooling fans), utilizing high-temperature solid state components and incorporating the necessary transient and surge suppression circuitry required for substation and electrically harsh environments.
