Siemens Industry Automation Division introduces the new Ruggedcom RSG2488 rack switch, extending its portfolio of robust network components designed for electric power applications. This high density layer 2 switch supports up to 28 copper or fiber gigabit ports in a compact 1U chassis.
The high-density layer 2 rack switch Ruggedcom RSG2488 from Siemens supports up to 28 gigabit ports in a 1U chassis. Its rugged design makes it ideal for use in electric power applications.
The new Ruggedcom RSG2488 switch is the first product of the Siemens Ruggedcom product line. Alongside the Scalance product family, the Ruggedcom product family allows the Siemens Industry Automation Division to offer a comprehensive portfolio of Industrial Ethernet network components for mission-critical applications in very harsh environments.
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 -40C to +85C and with high immunity to EMI per IEEE1613 and IEC61850-3, the Ruggedcom RSG2488 is ideally suited for use in almost any harsh environment. Conformal coating is available. The extruded aluminum enclosure, fanless design and the proven Rugged Operating System (ROS) ensure simple deployment and low cost operation.
By acquiring the Canadian corporation RuggedCom Inc. in March 2012, Siemens has augmented its portfolio of network components for Industrial Ethernet networks to support mission-critical applications in the harshest environments. All Ruggedcom products will be offered step by step as part of the new Siemens Ruggedcom product line with a slightly adapted housing design. The new Siemens Ruggedcom branding on the RSG2488 does not affect the product functionality in any way and all technical specifications and proven features of the RuggedCom products – alongside the 5-year product warranty – will remain unchanged.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
