Siemens RUGGEDCOM products offer:
- -40 to +85 degrees Celcius extreme operating temperature range
- Zero-Packet-Loss technology for immunity to high levels of electromagnetic interference
- enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (eRSTP™) for ultra high-speed network fault recovery.
These factors have made RUGGEDCOM synonymous with Substation Automation applications, particularly those utilising IEC-61850 as the overall framework or within self healing power grids or “Smart Grid” systems.
RUGGEDCOM products can be also be found in mission critical networks used in intelligent transportation systems for traffic management and railway control systems, as well as in process control and manufacturing automation systems used across multiple industrial sectors.
