Siemens Ruggedcom RMC8388 Media Converter

$1.00

The RUGGEDCOM RMC8388 is a rugged, small form factor time converter that converts PTP (IEEE 1588) to IRIG-B or PPS time signals. The RUGGEDCOM RMC8388 saves high maintenance costs on legacy coax cabling by allowing their replacement with standard Ethernet cabling for both communications and timing purposes, all the way to the switchyard cabinets.
