Expand Network with Ease and Reliability

The more data points you can connect, the more business insights you can leverage. For industrial applications, especially in harsh environments, the need for rapid and reliable network expansion is even more crucial for safety and productivity.

Industrial networks need to consider a number of critical factors. First of all, most cabinets, whether existing or newly added, need to accommodate more devices. Secondly, what if your network gets bogged down by heavy data traffic? Or worse, what if a power failure takes your connected devices offline? Lastly, deployment and maintenance budgets are crucial for sustaining long-term operation.

To address the needs of rapidly-expanding industrial networks, Moxa has developed a new series of industrial unmanaged Ethernet switches—the EDS-2000 Series—with an extra-small footprint that offer reliability, easy deployment, and flexibility for a variety of industrial applications.
