Moxa's Compact Modular Managed Ethernet Switches Are Unrivaled in Flexibility and Reliability

Moxa TurboPack™ 2009 Taipei, Taiwan, November 11, 2009—Moxa is unveiling the best fitting modular managed Ethernet switches in the industry. These compact switches are perfect for space-critical field site applications that require a flexible and expandable Ethernet infrastructure or multiple fiber solutions.


Moxa's EDS-608/611/616/619 series of modular managed Ethernet switches with a rich selection of media modules offer users an extensive and diverse collection to choose from. These high-density modular switches are extremely flexible and provide up to three Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to four modular expansion slots for Fast Ethernet modules with a diverse choice of copper and/or fiber connectors. The entire line features a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 75ºC as well as hot-swappable media modules to ensure reliable operation. Moxa's EDS-600 modular Ethernet switch product line is a cost-effective Ethernet infrastructure solution that maximizes flexibility and simplifies expansions.


Optimized for Multiple Fiber Applications
Choosing fiber connections for transferring mass data over vast distances in wide area network systems such as transportation systems, oil pipeline monitoring systems, and water and wastewater applications is a natural choice. Moxa's EDS-600 series is perfect for multiple-fiber applications as it is able to offer up to 16 fiber Ethernet ports with the additional option of three 1000SFP slots for Gigabit fiber uplinks.


Award-winning Modular Design
Moxa's EDS-600 series received the prestigious Red dot Product Design Award for 2009. The EDS's design and modular concept was highly praised. The EDS-600 switches allow users to select between different media interfaces. In addition, by offering users different 4-port Ethernet modules with different media options to choose from, users can create the optimal switch solution to match their specific needs, or they can choose to save space for future expansions.


Reliable and Secure Communications
The EDS-600 managed Ethernet switches feature versatile software functionality, including Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain redundancy with a fast recovery time under 20 ms, Modbus/TCP for integrating with SCADA/HMI systems, LLDP to enable automatic detection of network topology, IPv6 for next generation networking, and IEEE 1588 PTP to synchronize devices on a network with sub-microsecond precision, just to name a few. The EDS-600 series with its many features guarantees excellent network performance.
