Take Your Network to Gigabit with EDS-518A, MOXA's New Standalone Industrial Ethernet Switch

MOXA Networking is launching a new gigabit Ethernet switch that has all the features needed for industrial Ethernet applications.

EDS-518A is a new generation Ethernet switch that meets the European Union's RoHS standards . The switch is scheduled for release later this year.


EDS-518A is a standalone 18-port managed Ethernet switch that provides 2 combo gigabit ports with built-in RJ45 or SFP ports for gigabit optic communication. The gigabit Ethernet Redundant Turbo Ring (recovery time < 300 ms) increases the reliability and speed of your network backbone. EDS-518A also supports intelligent network management functions, including QoS, IGMP Snooping/GMRP, VLAN, Port Trunking, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, IEEE 802.1X, and https/SSL.


EDS-518A comes equipped with gigabit Turbo Ring capability that gives system maintainers a convenient means of setting up a versatile yet stable gigabit Ethernet network. In addition, Quality of Service (QoS) provides a traffic prioritization capability to ensure that important data is delivered consistently and predictably, and EDS-518A supports IEEE802.1D-1998 DMRP and IGMP Snooping to reduce the amount of traffic on the Ethernet LAN. EDS-518A supports VLAN technology, which can be used to segment your network without being restricted by physical connections, and IEEE802.3ad (LACP) provides flexible network connections and a redundant path for critical devices. SNMP V1/V2c/V3 provide different levels of management, and RMON (Remote Network Monitoring) allows various network agents and console systems to exchange network monitoring data. In addition, IEEE802.1X and https/SSL are available to enhance network security.


Key Features

  • 2 Gigabit plus 16 fast Ethernet ports for copper and fiber
  • Gigabit Turbo Ring (recovery time < 300 ms), RSTP/STP (IEEE802.1W/D) for Ethernet redundancy
  • QoS, IGMP snooping/GMRP, VLAN, LACP, SNMP V1/V2c/V3, RMON supported
  • Rate Limiting for bandwidth management, and broadcast storm protection
  • IEEE802.1X and https/SSL to enhance network security
