The RuggedServer™ RS400 is an industrially hardened multi-port Serial - to - Ethernet server specifically designed to operate in harsh environments such as those found in electric utility substations and factory floors. The RS400 provides industrial strength Ethernet networking capability allowing legacy serial devices to connect to the high speed Ethernet networks at 10Mbps or 100Mbps via copper or fiber. The RuggedServer™ provides four isolated (2kV) serial ports of RS232 or RS485 plus an integrated 4 port Ethernet switch and an optional V.90 Modem for remote connectivity.The RS400 is specifically designed to meet the same EMI immunity and environmental requirements as mission critical protective relaying devices in accordance with the newly issued IEC 61850-3 (2002) and IEEE 1613 (2003) standards for communications andnetworking equipment in electric power utility substations as well as NEMA TS 2 (1998) EMI and environmental requirments for traffic control equipment. The reliability of the RuggedCom product families exceeds those of commercial devices by having no rotating mechanical parts (i.e. no cooling fans), utilizing high-temperature solid state components and incorporating the necessary transient and surge suppression circuitry required for substation and electrically harsh environments.For more information on this product, Contact RuggedCom or visit their website at
