Compact Gigabit IEEE 1588 Ethernet switches for seamless reliability

Siemens is expanding its Ruggedcom portfolio with two new compact Ethernet switches. The Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R compact Gigabit IEEE 1588 compatible Ethernet switches support HSR and PRP according to the IEC 62439-3 standard.

  • Precise Time Synchronisation according to IEEE 1588
  • High Availability Seamless Redundancy (HSR) and Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) according to IEC 62439-3
  • Reduced risk of downtime and communication disruption
  • Certified for Electric Power, Transportation and Oil & Gas markets

At a time when the electric power industry worldwide is rapidly transitioning to fully digital systems, such as digital substations, the Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R help to avoid revenue loss by mitigating the risk of communication disruptions and downtime with a redundant fault tolerant network supporting high bandwidth. In addition to the seamless redundancy Ethernet networking features the device is equipped with redundant power supply inputs for additional reliability. The RSG907R and RSG909R come with a comprehensive set of approvals enabling digitalisation in Electric Power, Transportation and Oil & Gas markets. 
With IEEE 1588 precision timing support the Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R reduce capital expenses and maintenance costs by combining precision timing information and data communications onto a single network.

As with all Ruggedcom products, the Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R are rugged rated. They operate in a -40 to + 85 C temperature range and offer enhanced immunity to EMI/EMC, maintaining continuous safe and reliable operation even during power surges or power protection device events, therefore diminishing the risk of revenue and data loss.

Both devices come in a compact size, with integrated DIN rail mount and front facing interfaces to allow easy installation in space limited areas. 

Siemens is expanding its Ruggedcom portfolio with two new compact Ethernet switches. The Ruggedcom RSG907R and the Ruggedcom RSG909R compact Gigabit IEEE 1588 compatible Ethernet switches support HSR and PRP according to the IEC 62439-3 standard.
