RuggedNet® 10G/Si

Unmanaged Industrial 6 and 10 Port 10Gigabit Ethernet Switch

RuggedNet 10G/Si

The RuggedNet 10G/Si is an unmanaged, ruggedized industrial Ethernet switch featuring two 1/10G uplink ports along with four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 ports. It facilitates the extension of industrial network distances using fiber cabling.

As a Layer 2 Ethernet switch, the RuggedNet 10G/Si routes frames to ports based on MAC addresses.

All models come with a Directed Switch mode, which channels multicast traffic, such as video, solely to designated uplink ports to prevent network port congestion.

The switches are equipped for daisy-chain setups and redundant uplinks, essential for applications demanding protection and sub-50ms recovery time in case of uplink failure.

They also feature a Dual Device mode, allowing the 10G/Si to function as two separate, isolated Ethernet switches. This mode ensures distinct and independent data paths between each uplink port and associated copper ports.

Configuring the 10G/Si’s operational modes is straightforward with the DIP-switches, each function clearly labeled on the device’s side for easy identification.

The RuggedNet switches offer Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacle ports, compatible with a range of transceivers including 10/100/1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-T, and 10GBASE-T copper, as well as 1G and 10G multimode or single-mode fiber, with options for dual or single fiber and standard or CWDM/DWDM wavelengths.

Designed for versatility, the compact RuggedNet industrial Ethernet switches can be wall or rack-mounted using a bracket and shelf, or DIN-rail mounted with the provided clip, and feature dual DC input power options.

Dual Device Mode Application

The Dual Device feature proves highly beneficial for two isolated network domains that share a single network distribution point.

In the scenario illustrated below, the Quality Control (green) network and the Manufacturing (purple) network converge at a single hub distribution point. Employing dual uplinks and the Dual Switch mode enables a single switch to manage both the Quality Control and Manufacturing devices while preserving network isolation.


Industrial Daisy Chain Application


This example illustrates the daisy-chaining capabilities of RuggedNet switches. In this setup, each RuggedNet switch is connected to adjacent switches through its uplink ports. The daisy chain can be extended to more switches using this connectivity approach.

In this scenario, two sites are interconnected using RuggedNet switches, ensuring high-speed links between the workstations and the router.
