Rugged Managed Fast/Gigabit Ethernet RSR Switches

The manageable RSR20 and RSR 30 switches are designed for extremely high demands with regard to shock and vibration resistance as well as electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).


Whether high temperature, shock, vibration or EMC concerns – you are equipped with the best when you have the RSR Switches.

This ruggedized family will win you over based on its performance in network solutions in the energy sector as well as in transport Automation.

  • Hardened – deliver the performance you need under rough conditions, i.e. shock, vibration and temperatures fluctuating between +40°C and + 85°C
  • Flexible – easily customize a switch to your environment with up to 26 ports including up to 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports and individually configurable uplink ports
  • Wide range of input power options – switches can be configured with wide-voltage power supplies from 16.8-60 V DC or 48-320 V DC and 90-265 V AC with no need for an external power supply
  • Configuration - Web interface, Command Line Interface (CLI), TELNET, BootP, DHCP, DHCP option 82, HiDiscovery, auto configuration Adapter (ACA 21-USB), integrated DHCP Server
  • Software - OpenRail Layer 2 Professional, a powerful software platform with identical functionality for all products
  • Ambient conditions
    • Temperature – 40° C up to + 85° C
    • Optional conformal coating
    • Extreme EMI resistance
  • Operating voltage - Wide-voltage power supplies from 16.8 – 60 VDC or 48 – 320 VDC and 90 – 265 VAC
  • Ports
    • Up to 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports
    • Individually configurable uplink ports
  • Redundancy functions - HIPER-Ring, RSTP, redundant ring/Network coupling, link Aggregation
  • Approvals - IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613, NEMA TS2, EN 50121-4
  • Security - Port security (MAC and IP based) SNMP v3, authentication (802.1x), SSH, VLAN
  • Diagnostic Tools - LEDs, log file, syslog, RMON, port mirroring, cable diagnostics (TX), LLDP, address conflict and network fault detection, SFP diagnostics (temperature, optical input and output performance)
  • Robust industrial design - compact metal housing to be mounted both on DIN rails and on the wall

The RSR rail switches are built to take the punishment in marine, rail, road and other transportation automation applications including fiberoptic rail networks, train station passenger information systems, conveyors and airport runway lights.

Other examples include traffic surveillance on superhighways, bridges or in tunnels, toll collection systems as well as video on demand and air conditioning systems onboard ocean-going liners. Industrial ETHERNET is rapidly becoming the standard solution in military applications, and the new Hirschmann rail switches are an excellent choice for systems onboard navy ships and aircraft carriers.

All of this is available as a robust complete solution, for example in combination with the MACH 1000.
