Crystal Group has released two new rugged switches based on the Brocade
intelligent, scalable edge switch line.
The new Crystal ruggedised switches, the RCS6450-12 and RCS6450-24, are
ideal for small and medium sized applications in heavy industrial and military
environments with improved cooling, shock, vibration and humidity performance.
Recommended for harsh environments where size, weight, and power limitations
are a concern, the new ruggedised switches are cooled with forced air
convection via internal high reliability long life fans.
The 12-inch depth switches weigh 4.3-4.5kg based on supply configuration
requirements, and offer fixed mounted or Delrin Glides mounting options on
standard EIA-310 racks.
The RCS6450-12/24 rugged switches are compact and lightweight, offering
full Layer 3 routing, LLDP-MED plug-and-play operation as well as availability with
MIL-CIRC I/O or gigabit Ethernet standard connectors.
Crystal’s 12-port and 24-port switches are available with a standard
120/240VAC COTS power supply and front or rear I/O options; while power supply
options include single 120/240VAC EMI compliant power supply, 18-36VDC EMI
compliant power supply, or a combination of AC and DC supply modules in a 1+1
Crystal Group’s RCS6450-12 rugged switches are ideal for uncontrolled
environments found in military and industrial applications.
