Moxa's EDS-G500E Series of industrial Ethernet switches are designed to simplify upgrading an existing large-scale network to Gigabit speed and can withstand harsh conditions as well as prevent unplanned system downtime. Courtesy: MoxaMoxa's EDS-G500E Series of industrial Ethernet switches are designed to simplify upgrading an existing large-scale network to Gigabit speed, or building a new full Gigabit backbone. The switches are equipped with 8, 12, or 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to 4 fiber optic ports. 

The EDS-G500E series is designed to give withstand harsh conditions and prevents unplanned system downtime. In addition to Level 4 EMS protection to repel electromagnetic interference, severe shock/vibration resistance, and a new thermal fin design that can reduce switch temperatures (5°C or more), the EDS-G500E series will be available with Class 1, Div. 2/ATEX Zone 2 ratings for safe use in petrochemical facilities, processing plants and other classified areas. The EDS-G500 also features redundant Ethernet Turbo Ring, Turbo Chain, RSTP/STP, and MSTP to increase system reliability and the availability of the network backbone.

The switch series has several user-centric features designed to improve network manageability like auto configuration/backup/restore is fast and easy with the ABC-02 USB dongle and Moxa's MXcongif utility, which allows up to 100 switches to be configured in 12 minutes or less.
