Moxa NPort S8455I-MM-SC combines an Ethernet switch and serial device server with two fiber Ethernet, three Ethernet, and for RS 232/422/485 serial ports.

Moxa releases the first model in the NPort S8000 series, which combines an Ethernet switch and serial device server with two fiber Ethernet ports, three Ethernet ports, and four RS-232/422/485 serial ports. The design saves cabinet space, and reduces overall power consumption and costs since there is no need to purchase separate switches and serial device server products. NPort S8455I-MM-SC is an ideal solution for traffic monitoring and control applications thanks to compact size and all-in-one switch/device-server design. Renewable energy markets, such as solar power plants and wind farms, also benefit from the increased reliability and availability offered by the unit’s Ethernet redundancy function and support for ring topology.

The device performs NPort 5000 series device server functions. Network enables up to four serial devices through each of five Ethernet ports, with basic configuration. Data transmission between the serial and Ethernet interfaces is bidirectional. The unit has a built-in, full-function managed Ethernet switch that supports QoS, IGMP-snooping/GMRP, VLAN, Port Trunking, SNMPv1/v2c/v3, and IEEE 802.1X, allowing it to handle virtually any kind of application. Ethernet redundancy, which is used to increase the reliability and availability of an industrial Ethernet network, is provided by Moxa’s own Turbo Ring technology (recovery time & 20 ms) or RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1w/D).
