September 1, 2015 - Moxa releases environmentally-hardened  EDS-518E Ethernet switch that has 18 ports (14+4G), a compact DIN-rail form factor, high port density, intelligent management capabilities and advanced security to help unlock the value of IoT in industrial environments.

The EDS-518E switch conforms to UL and ATEX standards for hazardous industrial locations, and is IEC rated against shock, freefall and vibration.

Four combo Gigabit ports with built-in RJ45 orSFP (small form pluggable) slots enable network administrators to meet increased the bandwidth requirements of industrial applications involving big data and/or video over IP. Higher port density also makes the EDS-518E switch ideal for harsh industrial environments with limited installation space.

The EDS-518E also carries industry certifications for intelligent transportation, rail wayside, oil and gas, factory automation and process automation. 

Unlike commercial-grade switches designed for networks that can afford slower recovery times, the EDS-518E features high-performance redundancy through Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain technology, which supports sub-20 ms recovery time for networks of up to 250 switches. In addition, RSTP/STP and MSTP redundancy support provides compatibility with enterprise and third party network infrastructure. 

Software-based IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) ensures nanosecond timing synchronization for packets-based networks, while TACACS+, SNMPv3, IEEE 802.1x, HTTPS, and SSH enhance overall network security.  It also was awarded the IPv6 Ready logo verifying interoperability.
