The RuggedNet 10G/Si is a ruggedized unmanaged industrial Ethernet switch that features two 1/10G uplink ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 ports. The RuggedNet 10G/Si enables industrial network distance extension with fiber cabling.

The RuggedNet 10G/Si is a Layer 2 Ethernet switch that forwards frames to any port based on their MAC address.

All models support Directed Switch mode, which directs multicast traffic (such as video) only to the appropriate uplink port, preventing multicast traffic from flooding other network ports.

The switches support daisy-chain configurations and redundant uplinks for critical applications that require protection and sub 50ms restoration in the event of an uplink failure.

The switches support Dual Device mode that enables the 10G/Si to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the 10G/Si provides separate and independent data traffic paths between each uplink port and a group of copper ports.

The 10G/Si modes of operation can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches. Each DIP-switch function is labeled on the side of the RuggedNet for ease of identification and use.

The RuggedNet switches are available with Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacle ports. The SFP ports support 10/100/1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-T and 10GBASE-T copper transceivers. They also support 1G and 10G multimode or single-mode fiber, dual or singlefiber and standard or CWDM/DWDM wavelengths.

The RuggedNet compact industrial Ethernet switches can be wall or rack mounted using a wall mount bracket and shelf or DIN-rail mounted using the included DIN-rail mounting clip. They are available with dual DC input power.


Dual Device Mode Application

This Dual Device feature is extremely useful when two isolated networks domains share a single network distribution location.

The example below depicts a scenario where the Quality Control (green) network and the Manufacturing (purple) network are sharing a single hub distribution location. Using the two uplinks and the Dual Switch mode facilitates using a single switch driving both the Quality Control and the Manufacturing devices while maintaining isolation between the networks.


Industrial Daisy Chain Application

This example demonstrates the daisy chain capabilities of the RuggedNet switches. In this application each RuggedNet switch connects to its neighboring switches via its uplink ports. The daisy chain can continue to additional switches using this method of connectivity.

In this application, two locations are connected using the RuggedNet switches providing high speed connectivity between the workstations and the router.Industrial Manufactring Application 10gsi
