RuggedMC RMC40



The RMC40 is a 4-port unmanaged Ethernet switch that provides both copper-to-fiber media conversion as well as 10Mbps to 100Mbps speed conversion. Specifically designed to operate reliably in electrically and climatically harsh environments it is well suited for use in mission critical Ethernet networking applications.

The RMC40 is packaged in a compact, galvanized steel enclosure that allows either DIN or panel mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. It has an integrated power supply with a wide range of voltages for worldwide operability. An operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C (-40 to +185°F) without the use of internal cooling fans allows it to be placed in almost any location. It is compliant with EMI and environmental standards for utility substations, industrial plants, and intelligent transportation systems.

The versatility and wide selection of fiber optics allows the RMC40 to be used in a variety of applications. It can be used in place of traditional copper-to-fiber media converters with the added ability to convert speed from 10Mbps to 100Mbps. With dual fiber optics, daisy chaining of Ethernet enabled devices can easily be accomplished. For the most demanding of systems, a dual-redundant fiber optic connection can be created for a device that only offers a single 10/100TX port.

All RuggedCom products are backed by a five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
