Datasheet / User Guide

Product Description

The RuggedAPE™ (Application Processing Engine) is the ideal product to increase performance and functionality of the RX1500 multi-service platform. Leveraging the built in switching and routing platform of the RX1500, the RuggedAPE™ is a utility grade computing platform. It plugs directly into any member of the RX1500 family and enables customers to load and execute security and software applications directly on a RuggedBackbone™ device. From substation gateway, remote analytics and firewall to monitoring and control applications, the RuggedAPE™ provides the computing power and reliability for mission critical applications.

The RuggedAPE™ is designed to the RuggedRated™ specification, which provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electrical surges. With an operating temperature range of -40° to +70°C (-40° to +158°F), the APE can operate in harsh environments.
