May 24, 2017 -- Moxa has introduced its new SDS-3008 Smart Switch. The 8-port industrial-grade switch is configured using an dashboard that allows users to activate pre-configured automation protocols in one click and remotely manage the unit on HMI/SCADA systems.
With its protocol configuration, mounting design, and interface, the SDS-3008 is a networking solution for virtually any Smart Factory application. It supports the core industrial protocols -- EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus/TCP -- and includes built-in network monitoring and control functionality. It also supports Moxa's ABC-02 automatic backup configurator for event logging and configuration backup, RSTP/STP for network redundancy, along with a range of useful management functions, including IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, port mirroring, SNMP, and warning by relay.
The graphical function menu and one-page configuration dashboard allows engineers to clearly visualize status, diagnose problems and operate the unit.
The SDS-3008 further has a width of 2 centimeters (0.78 inches). Engineers work in a variety of control cabinets that are often small and overcrowded. With the optional 1U rack accessory, users can combine four smart switch units on a 19-inch cabinet.
