Moxa Technologies , a provider of industrial Ethernet solutions, has released new Ethernet switches with IP67-rated housing.
The EDS-305-M12 series of 5-port industrial unmanaged Ethernet switches with M12 connectors are designed for tough industrial applications.
The rugged, IP67-rated design makes the EDS-305-M12 switches ideal for use in harsh or outdoor environments, such in the transportation and factory automation industries.
The EDS-305-M12 switches are water-resistance, and are designed to be resistant to the effects of dust, dirt, humidity, vibration, and shock.
The EDS-305-M12 switches use M12 connectors for the Ethernet interface. M12 connectors can ensure a tight connection, and keep your Ethernet connections from popping loose in high-vibration applications such as in moving vehicles.
This IP67 industrial Ethernet switch with reliable M12 tight plugs help ensure that your applications run non-stop in any hazardous industrial environment.
In addition, the EDS-305-M12 switches have received important industrial and safety approvals, such as UL508, Class 1, Div. 2, and will also receive DNV/GL maritime certification for specialized applications.
Besides the M12 robust connections and basic built-in network switching technology, the EDS-305-M12 series plug-n-play Ethernet switches have a rugged design.
Two models are available, both of which are IP67-rated to be waterproof. One model has an operating temperature range of 0 to 60oC, and the other model has an extended operating temperature range of -40 to 75oC.
With the switches’ small size and rugged IP67 housing, users can save more space and reduce costs, since the EDS-305-M12 switches can be installed directly onsite, without the need to provide an additional protective casing.
