Siemens Ruggedcom RX1400 is a multiprotocol intelligent node which combines Ethernet switching, routing and firewall functionality with various WAN connectivity options. The device is IP40 rated, does not use fans for cooling, operates continuously within a -40° C to +85° C temperature range and comes with a rugged metal housing that supports DIN rail, panel, or rack mounting.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference, heavy electrical surges, extreme temperature and humidity for reliable operation in harsh environments. The integrated GNSS (GPS/GLONASS) functionality allows the device to report its location as necessary for asset tracking purposes in large scale deployments.
The Ruggedcom RX1400 is designed to support primary communications over commercial 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 the communication. 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 Ruggedcom RX1400 offers a cost saving solution for large scale deployments. Its compact form factor allows installation in existing cabinets, while advanced cyber security features make it ideally suitable for mission-critical applications, where high reliability and secure communications is of paramount importance, i.e. utility substations, traffic control cabinets, railway applications, oil and gas and other harsh environment situations.

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
Just in time for Christmas, a Mars-analogue mission in Morocco, coordinated by the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as part of the SRC project FACILITATORS, has been successfully completed. SRC, the Strategic Research Cluster on Space Robotics Technologies, is a program of the European Union to support research and development in space technologies. From mid-November to mid-December 2018, a team of more than 30 scientists from 11 countries tested technologies for future exploration of Mars and Moon in the desert of the Maghreb state.
Close to the border with Algeria, the Erfoud region in Morocco – known to tourists for its impressive sand dunes – offered ideal conditions for the four-week...
