Migrate to full Gigabit speeds with Moxa's Gigabit Ethernet switches

EDS-G308 Taipei, Taiwan, September 3, 2008— Moxa Inc. is pleased to announce that a full Gigabit unmanaged Ethernet switch, the EDS-G308, is now available. The EDS-G308 is equipped with 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports with up to two selectable fiber optic 100/1000M SFP modules for the highest level of data transmission. The EDS-G308 series provides industrial grade features needed to withstand adverse conditions, such as -40 to 75°C operating range, redundant dual 12/24/48 VDC, 18 to 30 VAC inputs, and rugged fiber optic support. The Ethernet switches have the optimum balance of speed, cost, and long-term reliability, making it easy for users to upgrade highly demanding networks to full Gigabit speed, but without eliminating your existing 10/100M Ethernet networks.

The EDS-G308 comes with an innovative power-saving design that cuts power consumption by up to 62%. The power-saving design works by automatically detecting the link status, and reducing the power usage of ports that are idle.

Product Features
  • 8 Gigabit Ethernet ports with up to 2 Gigabit SFP fiber-optic ports
  • -40 to 75°C operating range (T models)
  • Redundant dual 12/24/48 VDC, 18 to 30 VAC power inputs
  • Relay warning for power failures and port breaks
  • Innovative power-saving design cuts power consumption by up to 62%
