Courtesy: SiemensSiemens Industry Automation Division's Ruggedcom RSG2488 compact rack switch is designed for electric power, transportation and defense applications. This high density layer 2 switch supports up to 28 copper or fiber ports in a compact 1U chassis. The Ruggedcom RSG2488 switch is the first product under the Siemens Ruggedcom brand. The Ruggedcom RSG2488 features a modular vertical loading design allowing 10/100/1000TX, 100FX or 1000SX ports to be quickly added or exchanged in the field. The modular structure and hot swappable power supply design simplifies maintenance and allows fast, low-cost re-configuration as requirements change.

Designed to operate from -40 C to +85 C and with high immunity to EMI per IEEE 1613 and IEC 61850-3, the Ruggedcom RSG2488 is ideally suited for use in almost any harsh environment. The extruded aluminum enclosure and fanless design ensure simple deployment and low costoperation. A new version of the Rugged Operating System (ROS), ROS 4.0, will be available with the RSG2488. While it leverages the RSG2488's technology, ROS 4.0 has the same user interface as the previous versions of ROS, thereby minimizing operator ramp-up time and expense.
