MOXA Robust Ethernet Switch─IP67-rated protection provides resistance from troubling environmental factors

Taipei, Taiwan , August 20, 2007—MOXA is proud to announce its first Ethernet switches with IP67-rated housing. The EDS-305-M12 series of 5-port industrial unmanaged Ethernet switches with M12 connectors are designed for the toughest industrial applications. The rugged, IP67-rated design makes the EDS-305-M12 switches ideal for use in harsh or outdoor environments, such in the transportation and factory automation industries. The EDS-305-M12 switches are water-resistance, and are designed to be resistant to the effects of dust, dirt, humidity, vibration, and shock.


The EDS-305-M12 switches use M12 connectors for the Ethernet interface. M12 connectors can ensure a tight connection, and keep your Ethernet connections from popping loose in high-vibration applications, such as in moving vehicles. This IP67 industrial Ethernet switch with reliable M12 tight plugs help ensure that your applications run non-stop in any hazardous industrial environment. In addition, the EDS-305-M12 switches have received important industrial and safety approvals, such as UL508, Class 1, Div. 2, and will also receive DNV/GL maritime certification for specialized applications.


Besides the M12 robust connections and basic built-in network switching technology, the EDS-305-M12 series plug-n-play Ethernet switches have a rugged design. Two models are available, both of which are IP67-rated to be waterproof. One model has an operating temperature range of 0 to 60°C, and the other model has an extended operating temperature range of -40 to 75°C. With its small size and rugged IP67 housing, users can save more space and reduce costs, since the EDS-305-M12 switches can be installed directly onsite, without the need to provide an additional protective casing.
