Most importantly, the EDS-205A/208A series provides the best price to performance ratio, making it an excellent unmanaged networking solution for the smart network administrator. The new generation of EDS-205A/208A switches features redundant 12/24/48 VDC power inputs, -40 to 75?C wide temperature range (T models), IP30 metal housing, extra slim size, and up to two fiber connections to give users the greatest reliability and flexibility with industrial applications in limited space.


The ruggedized EDS-205A/208A unmanaged Ethernet switches are fully compliant with UL508, Class I Div. 2/ATEX Zone 2, and DNV/GL for hazardous industrial settings to provide stable operations under any harsh environmental conditions. To fit various application requirements, the EDS-205A/208A series offers many different options, from one fiber port to two fiber ports (multi/single-mode) to facilitate long-haul data transmission. "Small, yet all-in-one, the new EDS-205A/208A series not only provides ultra rugged specifications for such a compact size, but also offers an optimal price/performance ratio.
