Moxa unveils three fiber port managed switches tailored for wind farm networks

Taipei, Taiwan, Jan. 6, 2009—Moxa is pleased to introduce the EDS-408A 3 FO series , 8-port managed Ethernet switches with three optical fiber ports in a slim form factor design. The unique 3 fiber port feature makes the EDS-408A 3 FO series ideal for industrial applications, such as widely dispersed wind farm networks that need more long-haul transmission capability in a standalone Ethernet switch. Fiber transmission offers the benefit of greater EMI protection to prevent unstable network transmissions and data loss. In addition, the EDS-408A 3 FO series is designed for completely fan-less operation in a wide temperature range from -40 to 75°C.

The EDS-408A 3 FO series includes the same great features found in Moxa's other managed switches, such as Turbo Ring, which can recover your Ethernet network in less than 20 ms (250 Ethernet switches) to ensure system stability. Other functions include Quality of Service (QoS) for traffic prioritization and consistent data transmission, and IGMP Snooping to reduce traffic on the Ethernet LAN and VLAN, which can be used to segment your network without being restricted by physical connections.
