OAKVILLE, ON, Jan. 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Siemens Ruggedcom RX1400 is a multiprotocol intelligent node which combines Ethernet switching, routing, VPN, and firewall functionality with various WAN connectivity options. The device operates continuously within a -40° C to +85° C temperature range using a fanless design, and is equipped with a rugged metal housing that supports DIN rail, panel, or rack mounting.
Similar to the existing products in the RUGGEDCOM portfolio, the RX1400 is IEC61850-3 and IEEE 1613 Class 2 compliant and provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference, heavy electrical surges, extreme temperature and humidity for reliable operation in harsh environments.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 is designed to support primary communications over commercial 4G (LTE) networks and leverage LTE's enhanced capabilities for QoS (Quality of Service) management. For reliability purposes the device is able to rollback to 2G and 3G wireless connectivity. In addition the cellular router is equipped with a dual SIM card slot which enables automatic failover in case of interruption in communication with the primary cellular provider. The device can also be used with two optional small form factor pluggable fiber optic transceivers (SFPs), to establish wireline communication in areas where fiber is available. The integrated GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) functionality allows the device to report its location as necessary for asset tracking purposes in large scale deployments.
- Integrated 4G (LTE) Modem with rollback to 2G and 3G networks for reliability
- Dual SIM card slot for service provider redundancy and automatic failover
- Rugged utility-grade design for demanding applications like Electric Power, Transportation, Defense Systems and Oil & Gas.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 offers an entry level solution for any scale of implementation. Its compact form factor allows installation in existing cabinets, while the advanced cyber security and networking functionality make it ideally suited for mission-critical applications, where high reliability and secure communications is of paramount importance, i.e. distribution automation, traffic control cabinets, rail wayside communications, pipeline data collection, and other harsh environment situations.
