RuggedCom to supply Ethernet switches to Wind Farm in China
This order signifies the achievement of key milestones related to two strategic focuses for RuggedCom. The first relates to expanding our global reach into China and the second relates to our expansion into wind power generation; both markets represent large opportunities for us, explains Marzio Pozzuoli, President and CEO of RuggedCom. For this order, we leveraged our domain expertise in the electric power market and worked closely with a leading manufacturer of wind turbines to tailor our products specifically for wind farm applications. We plan to use this experience and new solution set to further penetrate this growing market.
The newly released RuggedSwitch i800 series of products and the industry leading RuggedSwitch RSG2100 are used for the wind turbine control system and are interconnected throughout the wind farm. RuggedCom worked closely with the customer to tailor the products specifications to meet their specific requirements. In addition, one of the key selling points was RuggedComs industry leading RuggedRated feature set for all its products. RuggedRated products meet or exceed a wide range of electric utility industry standards (such as IEC61850, IEEE1613); provide a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges; feature a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (no fans); have high mean-time-between-failures (MTBFs) and reliability characteristics; and include extensive cyber security features. RuggedComs local support and service, and short lead times were also contributing factors in the decision to use RuggedCom products. RuggedCom will continue working closely with the wind turbine manufacturer to ensure its mission critical communication network infrastructure needs are met.
