Moxa, a global provider of innovative industrial Ethernet solutions, recently unveiled a new class of Gigabit Ethernet switches, the EDS E series, for use in large-scale networks to converge field applications in extreme industrial environments. In addition to Level 4 EMS protection, severe shock/vibration resistance, and new thermal fin design that can reduce switch temperatures (5°C or more), the EDS E series has many user-centric features to significantly improve network manageability, and the new hardware designs are engineered to provide an unprecedented level of switch reliability for industrial applications.
According to recent market studies (IMS report), the global number of industrial Ethernet nodes at supervisory and control levels are growing at an average rate of 15%. However, the number of field-level nodes is growing at a rate of approximately 36%. If industrial Ethernet technology is increasingly being deployed at remote field locations, industrial Ethernet switch reliability will need to be robust enough to handle harsh field site conditions. The new EDS E series is designed to give industrial operators peace of mind with the utmost protection available against high-voltage electrical transients, severe shock and vibration, and extremely high temperatures, explained
The EDS E series offers various copper and fiber slot combinations with up to 16 gigabit Ethernet ports to quickly build a full-gigabit network backbone or add gigabit speed to existing networks. Other key benefits of the EDS E series include an USB interface for fast and easy auto-configuration/backup/restore, and reduced energy consumption of up to 30% with IEEE 802.3az.
