Rugged communications for harsh environments

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.

Holding its own in the most demanding industrial environments

Combining Ethernet switching, wireless LAN, routing, application hosting and firewall functionalities in one, the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 switch and router eliminates the need for extensive communication infrastructure.

As a cellular router, the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 eliminates the need for multi-device solutions to achieve the needed interface, switching, routing and application hosting capabilities. In addition to providing IP40 protection, it requires no internal fans for cooling to operate reliably in an extended temperature range of -40° C to +85° C.

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 the capabilities of cloud-based solutions such as data acquisition, conversion and communication. 

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.

Ideally suited for industries requiring rugged hardware and reliable communications, the RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 virtual environment in the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 router provides robust 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 limited to small bandwidths or expensive public networks. Now information can be processed on-site in a virtual environment in the router, thus making room for more devices on the network – a key enabler for the Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT).

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.
