Build Ruggedized, Large-scale Networks with Moxa's Industrial-grade Rackmount Switch

Moxa IKS Rackmount Ethernet Switches Taipei, Taiwan, March 5, 2010—Moxa today introduced the IKS-6500, a new entry into Moxa's line of industrial rackmount Ethernet switches that support flexible copper/fiber configuration with Gigabit uplink, reliable media and power redundancy, advanced network management functionalities, and industrial rugged design. Moxa's IKS-6500 series industrial managed rackmount switches are designed to seamlessly interconnect your entire Ethernet network at the control level of industrial networks.


Moxa's IKS series industrial rackmount Ethernet switch family are rugged switches ideal for critical industrial networks, such as intelligent transportation system, railway, oil and gas, marine, wind farm, and solar energy applications. They support enhanced network redundancy (recovery time < 20 ms), wide temperature range, redundant power, and meet various industrially recognized standards (DNV/GL, EN50121-4, NEMA TS2, UL 60950, etc.) to guarantee high network availability and environmental adaptability for harsh environments. The IKS series rackmount Ethernet switches are intended for creating large-scale networks where high port density and integrated connections at control centers are required.


Promise High Network Availability to Your Entire Network!
Redundancy is a key factor in keeping industrial networks up and running. Moxa's IKS series rackmount Ethernet switches feature Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain redundant technologies that keep the recovery time of the overall network below 20 ms. By linking with Moxa's EDS DIN-Rail industrial Ethernet switches, user can now build the highly fault tolerant redundant infrastructures from the field network to control network and ensure maximum network communication uptime.


Overall Feature

  • 2 combo Gigabit RJ45/SFP ports (IKS-6526-2GTXSFP series)
  • Up to 8 fiber connections (IKS-6526-8SFP series)
  • Support Turbo Ring™, Turbo Chain™, and STP/RSTP for Ethernet redundancy which together with Moxa's EDS switches form complete and robust redundant networks
  • IEEE 1588 PTP, Modbus/TCP, LLDP, SNMP Inform, QoS, IGMP snooping, VLAN, IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, SNMPv3, and SSH supported
  • Isolated redundant power inputs with 110/220 VAC power supply and standardized power inlets
  • Fanless design and -40 to 75?C operating temperature range
  • Meets industry certifications for transportation, process automation, and maritime applications (NEMA TS2, EN50121-4, UL60950, Class I, Div. 2, ATEX Zone 2, DNV/GL, etc.)
