RuggedServer RS416



The RuggedServer™ RS416 is an industrially hardened serial device server with an integrated, fully managed, Ethernet switch, designed to operate reliably in electrically harsh and climatically demanding environments. Featuring a modular design that can support up to 16 serial ports and up to 4 Ethernet ports, the RS416 is able to interconnect multiple types of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) that have different methods of communications. Using the RS416 results in fewer connectivity devices (which reduces overall system costs) and also extends the useful life of existing legacy IEDs (which minimizes capital expenditure for new equipment).

The RS416 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments found in electric utility substations, factory floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. The RS416 meets or exceeds a wide range of industry standards including IEC 61850, IEEE 1613, IEC 61000-6-2, IEC 61800-3, and NEMA TS-2. The RS416 also features a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C allowing it to be installed in virtually any location.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS™) within the RS416 provides advanced layer 2 and layer 3 networking functions, advanced cyber security features, and a full array of intelligent functionality for high network availability and manageability. Coupled with the ruggedized hardware design, the RS416 is ideal for creating mission-critical, real-time, control applications in any harsh environment.

The RS416 is also backed by RuggedCom's all inclusive five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
