The RuggedNet G/Mi is a ruggedized Industrial Ethernet gigabit fiber switch that features one or two Gigabit fiber ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper ports. The RuggedNet G/Mi enables industrial network distance extension with fiber cabling.

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

The RuggedNet G/Mi supports Directed Switch mode, which directs multicast traffic (such as video) only to the appropriate fiber port, preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.

Models with two fiber ports support redundant fiber uplinks for critical applications that require protection and sub 50ms restoration in the event of a fiber failure. The second fiber port may also be used to daisy-chain multiple Ethernet switches, or it may be used as another switch port.

Models with two fiber ports also support Dual Device mode that enables the G/Mi to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the G/Mi provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four or eight RJ-45 ports.

The RuggedNet G/Mi is available with fixed ST, SC, and LC connectors or Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacles. Fiber ports support multimode or single-mode and dual fiber or single-fiber with distances up to 140 km. SFP models support a variety of distances in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

The RuggedNet G/Mi modes of operation can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet, SSH or Serial Console management interfaces. The RuggedNet G/Mi supports in-band and out-of-band management. Inband management is provided by accessing the module through any of the Ethernet RJ-45 or fiber ports and supports IP-based web, Telnet, SSH and SNMPv1/v2c. Out-of-band management is provided by accessing the serial console port. NetOutlook software can be used for real-time alarm reporting and monitoring of each port.

The compact RuggedNet Ethernet switches can be wall mounted with an optional wall mount bracket or DIN-rail mounted using the included DIN-rail mounting clip. They are available with single or dual DC input power options.

Two contact-closure alarm relays are available to detect user configured events. Relay contacts can be configured for normally open or normally closed operation. One alarm input is available for detecting external events such as door open or closed.

Industrial Daisy Chain Application

RuggedNet industrial fiber switches can be deployed in a simple daisy chain topology.

In this application example, Gigabit fiber is distributed from a fiber switch at a network hub location, and fiber runs along a manufacturing line in a daisy chain topology. RuggedNetG/Mi fiber switches with two fiber ports are deployed along the fiber daisy chain, and each RuggedNet G/Mi fiber switch provides copper connectivity to a router, a camera, a PLC and an industrial manufacturing robot.

Directed Switch Mode

The G/Mi can be configured to operate in Directed Switch Mode, which directs video traffic only to the uplink fiber port, as shown in the diagram below, preventing the multicast traffic from flooding other network ports.

This example shows a video camera that broadcasts a multicast video stream to the entire network, and the video stream is received by all of the destinations. This multicast video can cause port flooding on other network devices (including other cameras, printers and workstations). To avoid this, multicast traffic is routed only to ports where the destination devices are connected.

Dual Device Mode

For secure applications requiring two separate network domains over fiber runs to the same location, the G/Mi can be configured in Dual Device Mode.

The G/Mi provides separate and independent data traffic paths between the two fiber links and four or eight RJ-45 ports. In the example below, the green lines represent a Manufacturing network and the purple lines represent a Workgroup network.

The IP-based web management provides easy access to all the features of the RuggedNet using any standard web browser.

IP-based web management provides remote management of the RuggedNet compact fiber switches, and provides the ability to remotely monitor status and configure hardware/software parameters.

The management software provides intuitive and easy-to-navigate menu options for system status, port statistics and configuration screens.

Configuration capabilities include port settings, DIP-switches, VLAN, switch modes, firmware updates and system maintenance.
