Moxa a provider of industrial-grade networking solutions has launched a new series of industrial Ethernet switches. The EDS (News - Alert)-G500E series has been designed to help upgrade existing large-scale networks to Gigabit speed.
The switches are equipped with 8, 12, or 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to 4 fiber optic ports and can be used to build a new full Gigabit backbone. The scalability features of the switches will provide total network reliability and an easy-to-use interface for IT professionals. They can now transfer bandwidth-heavy triple-play services easily even in extreme industrial environments.
Todd Desso, Strategic Business Manager for Moxa said, “The EDS-G500E switch is ideal for highly demanding communication applications, such as video and process monitoring, ITS, and DCS systems, all of which benefit from a scalable backbone construction.”
The Moxa EDS-G500E series of Ethernet switches meet the needs of industrial Ethernet networks by making them suitable for multiple Gigabit connections besides ensuring optimum reliability, security and manageability. They are robust enough to work in harsh conditions with no planned downtime. The switches are resistant to severe shock and vibration.
Officials added that the level 4 EMS protection will help repel EMI while the thermal fin design will help reduce switch temperatures. The series of switches feature a redundant Ethernet turbo ring, turbo chain, RSTP/STP, and MSTP.
The user-centric auto configuration, backup and restore features of the series enhance manageability. The ABC-02 USB dongle and Moxa’s MXcongif utility ensures that about 100 switches are configured within 12 minutes. Also the presence of the command-line interface enables clients to benefit from optimum control features during configuration of managed functions.
Recently Moxa released the theioLogik W5340-HSPA, a wide temperature cellular remote I/O device for remote monitoring applications over mobile networks. With support for the advanced high speed downlink packet access (HSPA) technology, the W5340-HSPA reduces the response time for I/O status acquisition and control communications.
