Moxa's EDS-508 Industrial Ethernet Switch Granted ABB Industrial IT Certification

Moxa Networking recently announced that ABB Industrial IT has certified its EDS-508 series of Managed Industrial Ethernet Switches. This makes Moxa Networking one of only a handful of Industrial Ethernet Switch manufacturers that have been granted certification under the Industrial IT enabling program.

ABB, a global leader in power and automation technologies, is well known for its high-performance industrial automation solutions, and for working hard to eliminate any adverse affects that the manufacturing process has on the environment. Industrial automation engineers around the world trust ABB to use only the most stringent testing standards during the certification process, and consequently, they can be certain that the EDS-508 series of Ethernet Switches are of the highest quality and have excellent capability.

The EDS-508 series is a full line of managed Industrial Ethernet Switches designed for crucial Ethernet communication in harsh application environments, where nonstop operation is one of the most basic requirements for mission-critical automation systems. In most cases, the downtime of automation systems is caused by network breakdowns. This makes the EDS-508 series particularly attractive, since its high MTBF and redundant Turbo Ring (which recovers the network within 300 milliseconds) ensure that the network will work continuously.

The EDS-508 series has passed the Industrial IT tests for conformity at the Connectivity Level. Products that have earned the Industrial IT certificate are guaranteed to be of high quality, and to be compatible with the family of the Industrial IT certified products.

EDS-508's IIT certification and excellent features, such as redundant Turbo Ring, Tagged VLAN, QoS, IGMP snooping, and wide operating temperature (-40 to 75oC), make it suitable for use with many different Automation applications.
