Datasheet/ Software/ Installation Guide/ Rugged Operating System (ROS®) Software User Guide

Product Description

The RuggedSwitch™ M969NC is a MIL-STD hardened, fully managed Ethernet switch providing dual fiber optical Ethernet ports and eight Fast Ethernet copper ports in a MIL-STD 901D rated package (for protection against vibration and shock impacts) and is IP66/IP67 rated for protection against strong jets of water (IP66) or temporary immersion in water (IP67).

Designed to operate reliably in harsh environments the M969NC provides a high level of tolerance to vibrations and shock impact; high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference; an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C; hazardous location certification and IP66/IP67 rated waterproof packaging. All of which allows the M969NC to be placed in virtually any location.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) 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 M969NC is ideal for creating mission-critical, real-time, control applications in any harsh environment.
