Combining Ethernet switching, wireless LAN, routing and firewall functionality in one, Siemens RUGGEDCOM RX1400 holds its own in the most demanding industrial environments. As a cellular router, it eliminates the need for extensive communication infrastructures. 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.
RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 Virtual Environment
The RUGGEDCOM VPE1400 provides a virtualized environment to run a guest Linux operating system and third party applications on the RX1400, enabling intelligence at the network edge. Virtualization allows a full Linux image (with dedicated storage media and I/O ports) to run in parallel with the RUGGEDCOM ROX II, using a Linux KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) based solution. The KVM ensures that the guest OS and third party applications can run without impacting RUGGEDCOM RX1400 core services running on the system.
RUGGEDCOM RX1400 with CloudConnect
An industrial IoT gateway, such as the RUGGEDCOM RX1400 with CloudConnect, is an all-in-one solution for plug-and-play connectivity to all common cloud solutions e.g. MindSphere, Amazon Web Services and other cloud solutions. This solution provides the combined capabilities of data acquisition, conversion and communication with MindSphere or other cloud solutions.
It features web based stand alone configuration, optimized data traffic based on publish/subscribe mechanisms, and trigger management for event driven and cyclic communication.
