  • 8 IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ standard ports 
    • 36-watt output per PoE+ port in high-power mode 
    • Intelligent PoE power management functions
  • Operate with 240 watts full PoE+ loading at -40 to 75°C
  • Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms @ 250 switches), RSTP/STP, and MSTP for network redundancy 
  • Supports MXstudio for easy, visualized industrial network management
  • V-ON™ ensures millisecond-level multicast data and video network recovery 


The EDS-G512E-8PoE Series are full gigabit managed PoE+ Ethernet switches that come standard with 8 10/100/1000BaseT(X), 802.3af (PoE), and 802.3at (PoE+)-compliant Ethernet ports, and up to 4 fiber optic ports.
With the gigabit Ethernet PoE+ ports, it is perfect for high bandwidth PD device communications, such as IEEE 802.11n and IEEE 802.1ac wireless access points and high resolution GigE machine vision cameras for tolling systems. It can provide up to 30 watts of power per PoE+ port in standard mode and allow high power output of up to 36 watts for industrial heavy-duty PoE devices, such as weather-proof IP surveillance cameras with wipers/heaters, and rugged IP phones.

The EDS-G512E-8PoE Ethernet switches are highly versatile, and the SFP fiber ports can transmit data up to 120 km from the device to the control center with high EMI immunity. The Ethernet switches support a variety of management functions, including STP/RSTP, Turbo Ring, Turbo Chain, PoE power management, PoE device auto-checking, PoE power scheduling, IGMP, VLAN, QoS, RMON, bandwidth management, and port mirroring.

Is Your Network Infrastructure Ready for the IIoT?


The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) trend aims to improve efficiency and productivity by connecting different devices together as well as collecting and analyzing large volumes of data to offer accurate information. However, before reaping the benefits of the IIoT, users need to ensure that the correct infrastructure is in place. To make sure your network is ready for the IIoT, check out five of the most frequently mentioned questions........more



White Paper

Ensure Nonstop IP Surveillance with an Optimized Industrial Ethernet Network


If your CCTV system uses multicast transmission over a redundant ring, then even if your ring redundancy protocol is able to activate backup paths in a fraction of a second when a disconnection occurs, it could still take more than 2 minutes for your multicast video streams to recover. This is because a number of different protocols—including IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) and PIM-DM (Protocol Independent Multicast - Dense Mode)—are implemented to transmit your video packets around the network, and these standard protocols are not designed for mission-critical applications. In this white paper, we show how implementing an appropriate non-standard proprietary protocol can optimize your network for video stream transmission, and in this way overcome IGMP’s sluggishness.........more
