Moxa  has announced that a new series of industrial unmanaged Ethernet switches, the EDS-200A series, is now available.

EDS-200A switches are reliable unmanaged Ethernet switches. The EDS-200A series includes both 5 and 8-port models that come with a rugged, IP30 protected, aluminium housing, and redundant dual power inputs with 9.6 to 60VDC or 18 to 30VAC to give users flexibility for a variety of industrial applications.

In addition, the wide operating temperature range (-10 to 60°C) and DIN-rail or wall mounting capability make the plug-and-play EDS-200A Ethernet switches suitable for industrial Ethernet applications.

Wide power input range

The EDS-200A series provides redundant dual power inputs and can operate on either 12/24/48VDC (9.6 to 60VDC) or 18 to 30VAC. Supporting such a wide range of power inputs makes the switches suitable for a variety of industrial applications.

The two power inputs can be connected simultaneously to live AC or DC power sources. If one of the power inputs fails, the other live source enhances system reliability by backing up the Ethernet switch’s power needs automatically.

Aluminium casing protection

The aluminium housing with industrial IP30 protection is good for thermal conductivity since aluminium has better heat dissipation properties than steel.

“Developing a good design for dealing with heat dissipation is very important for electrical products deployed in harsh industrial environments, which are often subject to abnormally high temperatures due to a lack air conditioning or poor ventilation.

“The EDS-200A’s aluminum housing provides an efficient means of removing heat, and goes a long way to ensuring that your network operation is reliable,” said Jerry Sun, Moxa Product Manager.

Product features are: 

  • 10/100BaseT(X) (RJ45 connector), 100BaseFX (multi-mode, SC or ST connector)
  • Redundant dual 9.6 to 60 VDC, 18 to 30 VAC power inputs
  • IP30 aluminium case
  • -10 to 60°C operating temperature range
  • DIN-Rail and wall mounting ability
