Courtesy: MoxaMoxa’s EDS-405A-PTP five-port managed Ethernet switches feature IEEE 1588v2 PTP (Precision Time Protocol) hardware time stamping, which is designed to ensure precise time synchronization of networks running the company’s Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain topologies. Both topologies offer less than 20 ms recovery in networks with up to 250 switches.

The EDS-405A-PTP switches support IEEE 1588 Boundary Clock and Transparent Clock. While in Transparent Clock, the switches provide both End-to-End (2-step) and Peer-to-Peer (2-step) modes. They enable a high-precision time accuracy of less than 1 μs. The switches support Modbus TCP, Profinet RT, and EtherNet/IP for better SCADA integration. Other management functions, such as IGMP snooping, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, QoS, RMON and relay warning, are designed to make network planning more flexible and easy.

Moxa is showcasing the new switches at the SPS IPC Drives Show, Nov. 25-27 in Nuremburg, Germany.
