Data Communication and Wireless


Rockford offers a complete product portfolio of Industrial data connectivity, Serial communication, Control, and Automation as well as Wireless Microwave products.

Our profession is to supply for Industrial networking projects over the entire range, from LAN network in a small factory to global WAN in distributed Industrial sites. We also provide Industrial network security and cybersecurity solutions for both OT and IT to our customers, Improving their Cyber Resilience Proactively against the Risks


Industrial Ethernet Switches

Wide range of Din-Rail and Fanless Rackmount Industrial Switches

We have over 1000 models of POE, Managed and Unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switches in our portfolio with a variety of different features including 10/100/1000 Copper and Fiber Ethernet, Industrial Protocol support (PROFINET and Modbus)

Our Ruggedized Ethernet Switches are specifically designed to stand up to extreme temperatures, humidity, vibrations, and shocks which are found in harsh environments like:

  • industrial and factory automation
  • outdoor applications
  • Intelligent road transportation systems (ITS)
  • Maritime and marine
  • oil and gas and petrochemical plants


All of our rugged, yet easy to use, Industrial switches exceed the specifications of commercial switching products with industrial safety certification and approval for hazardous locations making them ideal for use in harsh environmental conditions.

 

Serial to Ethernet Converters

Our serial to Ethernet Converters commonly known as Terminal or Device Servers are used to connect serial-based equipment to the Ethernet network enabling customers to do such things as:

  1. Convert serial RS-422 or RS-485 to RS-232
  2. Cable replacement using serial to Ethernet
  3. Communicate to multiple serial devices simultaneously in the network
  4. Manage the serial console port on remote equipment like RTU and PLC over Ethernet
  5. Connect legacy serial signage equipment over Ethernet with serial-Ethernet adapters

 

Industrial Media Converters

Media Converters are used connect two different types of devices or networks together either cooper to fiber or fiber to fiber. While linking copper and fiber networks together is a common application, Fiber Media Converters also enable users to join together two multimode networks or link multimode to single-mode for longer data transmission distances. Media Converters are also the perfect solution to convert and extend various types of data signals throughout your network. If you have two devices or LANs that do not match, due to different speeds, operation types, modes or cable types, you are in the right place.


Ethernet Extenders

Industrial Ethernet extenders allow cost-effective Ethernet networks to be created over long distances, at high data rates. The SHDSL technology employed makes it possible to reuse many types of pre-existing cabling which in turn can lead to considerable financial savings. With support for multidrop networks, redundant rings, legacy serial connections, and layer 3 routing functions, our range of Ethernet extenders can meet any demand your application requires.


Industrial Routers

We provide a whole range of industrial routers for use in demanding applications such as railways, water treatment, substation automation, roads, and tunnels. Offering remote access solutions using ADSL or VDSL broadband and wireless 4G (UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA) or GPRS technologies, we ensure connections to the remote sites are resilient and reliable. As we know security is of paramount concern, all of our industrial routers include a powerful firewall to prevent unauthorized access.

 

Microwave Wireless

Wired networking is very often the best of all choices, but the need for genuine operational cost savings, mobility, and rapid deployment calls for advanced wireless solutions. Our purpose-designed technology offers highly efficient alternatives to leased lines and wired distribution systems, but with the mobility, flexibility and rapid deployment benefits of true carrier-class wireless solutions.
