RUGGEDCOM Edge routers
Compact and cost-saving Edge solution
RUGGEDCOM’s family of industrial Edge routers include the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 and the RUGGEDCOM RM1224, space-saving, small form-factor rugged devices that offer reliable, high-bandwidth WLAN or 4G LTE connectivity over short and long distances for remote networks in harsh environments.
Holding down the fort in the most demanding of industrial environmentsTake advantage of high availability, high bandwidth wired and wireless connectivity with minimal footprint for mission-critical industrial applications with the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 and RM1224 routers. Designed for harsh environments, they provide a secure communications backbone for remote networks.
The RUGGEDCOM RX1400 is a multi-protocol intelligent node that eliminates the need for extensive communication infrastructure by combining Ethernet switching, cellular (3G and 4G LTE), wireless LAN, routing, application hosting and firewall functionalities in one. It is equipped with an internal power supply and operates reliably in an extended temperature range of -40° C to +85° C without requiring internal fans for cooling. This industrial router supports high-speed fiber and cellular connectivity for backhaul. Furthermore, it ensures maximum network availability with dual micro-SIM capability for carrier redundancy or diversity, making the RX1400 ideal for network redundancy applications. It can optionally also support Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n interface (Access Point/ Client).
Edge processing with the RUGGEDCOM VPE1400
Ideally suited for industries requiring rugged hardware and reliable communications, the RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 virtual machine (VM) environment integrated in the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 router provides a robust platform to run custom-built applications network stability and efficiency, allowing you to take your intelligence to the edge of the network.
Communication networks distributed over a wide geographical area, such as those used for smart grids or in traffic management, are often constrained by available bandwidth and the operating costs of running on public networks. The RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 provides a virtual environment on the router where data can be processed and organized on-site – enabling the Industrial Internet-of-Things
Creating a highly reliable and efficient processing environment virtually anywhere to run local monitoring and data analysis applications is easy and cost effective with the RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 virtual processing engine.
One router, a cloud of possibilities
The RUGGEDCOM RX1400 with CloudConnect works as an industrial IoT gateway – an all-in-one solution for plug-and-play connectivity to all common cloud solutions e.g., MindSphere, Amazon Web Services and others. It lets you tap into its capabilities of cloud-based solutions such as data acquisition, conversion and communication, significantly reducing data wastage.
The RUGGEDCOM RX1400 with CloudConnect also features a web-based stand-alone configuration, optimized data traffic based on publish/subscribe mechanisms, and trigger management for event driven and cyclic communication.
A cost-effective and compact wireless solution
Thanks to high bandwidths and superior performance capabilities, this extremely compact, small form-factor wireless router excels at a diverse range of applications, i.e., the integration of remote substations and feeder devices to rail and traffic applications, as well as remote video surveillance.
Superior performance for better communications
Connect up to four Ethernet devices with the RUGGEDCOM RM1224 router’s integrated 4-port switch. Two antenna connections (antenna diversity) allow operators to use multiple receive and transmit paths, increasing both signal quality and bandwidth.
Equipped with digital IO for applications, the RUGGEDCOM RM1224 also comes with redundant power supply inputs for bridging short-term failures.
