February 1, 2018 - Siemens is expanding its Ruggedcom portfolio with two Ethernet switches. The Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R Gigabit IEEE 1588 compatible Ethernet switches support HSR and PRP, according to the IEC 62439-3 standard.
At a time when the electric power industry worldwide is rapidly transitioning to fully digital systems, such as digital substations, the Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R are designed to help avoid revenue loss by mitigating the risk of communication disruptions and downtime with a redundant fault tolerant network supporting high bandwidth. In addition to the redundancy Ethernet networking features the device is equipped with redundant power supply inputs. The RSG907R and RSG909R come with a set of approvals enabling digitalization in Electric Power, Transportation and Oil & Gas markets.
As with all Ruggedcom products, the Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R are rugged rated. They operate in a -40 to + 85 C temperature range and offer enhanced immunity to EMI/EMC, maintaining continuous safe operation even during power surges or power protection device events.
