128-bit encryption

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

Product Description

The RuggedSwitch® RS900GP is a utility grade, fully managed Ethernet switch providing dual fiber optical or copper Gigabit Ethernet ports and eight Fast Ethernet copper ports each capable of supplying high power 802.3at compliant power over Ethernet. In addition, the RS900GP is fully compatible with the RuggedMAX™ CPE and Pico Base Stations.

Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments the RS900GP 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 traffic control cabinets. An operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C coupled with hazardous location certification, optional conformal coating and a cast aluminum enclosure allows the RS900GP to be placed in almost any location. The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced networking features such as Enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree (eRSTP™), Port Rate Limiting and a full array of intelligent functionality for high network availability and manageability.

The versatility and wide selection of fiber optics allows the RS900GP to be used in a variety of applications. The RS900GP provides two fiber optical Gigabit Ethernet ports for creating a fiber optical backbone with high noise immunity and long haul connectivity.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced layer 2 and layer 3 networking functions, and advanced cyber security features. Coupled with the rugged hardware design, RS900GP is ideal for creating mission-critical, real-time, control applications where high reliability and availability is of paramount importance.
