Siemens Ruggedcom RX1500 Switch and Router


The RX1500 series is a cost efficient utility grade layer 2 and layer 3 switch and router.   The RX1500’s modular and field replaceable platform allows customers to select amongst WAN, serial and Ethernet options making it ideally suited for electric power utilities, the industrial plant floor, rail and traffic control systems.
Features include:
  • Layer 2/layer 3 Switch and router that provides the in-service configuration flexibility and diversity of WAN/LAN interfaces to support present and future applications cost effectively
  • Legacy interface support (serial, 10FL) extends service life for older IED’s, RTUs and networks
  • Modular design avoids forklift upgrades due to new technology (eg. IEC 62439, IEEE 1588 etc)
  • Hot swappable modules allow changes without disabling unit
  • Rugged rated for extreme environments
