Rack switch with up to 28 Gigabit ports designed for harsh environments

08.04.2013
- Ruggedcom RSG2488 Ethernet switch designed for harsh environments in electric power applications
- Up to 28 non blocking Gigabit ports in a compact 1U chassis
- First product of the new Siemens Ruggedcom product line

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.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
