August 29, 2018 - Siemens is expanding its Ruggedcom portfolio with an Ethernet 19 inch rack switch with Power-over-Ethernet support. Its high port density with up to 24 Power- over-Ethernet ports is designed to reduce the number of network devices needed. The RST2228P offers Power-over-Ethernet, precision timing and network communication on a single network. The CLP interface port allows for replacement of devices in the field using the Ruggedcom CLP removable media to automatically apply the failed device’s configuration to a replacement unit in the event of a failure.
The device is rugged rated and features an operating temperature from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius, as well as electromagnetic interference (EMI) immunity. The product can be used in the harsh environments of Electric Power, Transportation and Oil & Gas industries and is designed to handle ever growing amounts of data.
The Ruggedcom RST2228P is a Layer 2 rack switch with 4 integrated 1/10 Gbit/s uplinks and up to 24 field modular 10/100/1000 Mbit/s interfaces supporting IEEE 1588 Transparent Clock and Power-over-Ethernet according to IEEE 802.3bt (draft). The Ruggedcom RST2228P comes with Power-over-Ethernet support for up to 24 devices with a combined power of 500 Watts with a maximum of 60 Watts per port. The product can be ordered pre-configured with modules installed, but also allows for in field setup and modifications with the separately orderable media modules: Ruggedcom RMM2973-4RJ45, RMM2973-4FC, RMM297304POE, RMM297304PFC, RMM2972-4SFP and RMM2942-4LD2 – to enable migration from copper to fiber optic networks.
