Designed for and put to the test under the harshest environments, RUGGEDCOM products meet and exceed recognized industry standards for performance in mission-critical applications.
When it comes to RUGGEDCOM products: Siemens conducts Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) in the early stages of product development to detect any design or performance issues as well as Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) later to ensure that customers get orders free of manufacturing errors and random defects. RUGGEDCOM products are thus able to provide reliable and error-free operation in harsh industrial environments.
The proliferation of IP networking technology in real-time, mission critical control applications requires a level of immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) beyond what is currently delivered by commercial grade networking products. Technology used in RUGGEDCOM products is able to withstand all EMI type tests required by IEC 61850-3 without any communications loss or delays. Products with this technology also qualify as IEEE 1613 class 2 error-free devices. This innovation – known as Zero Packet Loss™ technology – is designed to provide the same level of EMI immunity as protective relaying devices.
RUGGEDCOM products do not just offer immunity against electromagnetic interference, they also come with a variety of advanced cybersecurity features. These include multilevel user passwords, SSH/SSL (128-bit encryption), enable/disable ports, MAC-based port security, VLAN (802.1Q) to segregate and secure network traffic, RADIUS centralized password management, as well as SNMPv3 authentication and 56-bit encryption.
