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: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
