MOXA Networking displayed its total solution for ‘Video, Voice and Data Over One Network’ at the recent SPS/IPC/DRIVES show in Nuremberg, Germany.
Each year, the SPS show attracts automation players, especially for manufacturing automation, from all over the world.
At this three-day show, Moxa exhibited its latest products and attracted many interested visitors to their booth.
Product lines exhibited included industrial Ethernet Switches, media converters, wireless AP/Bridge/AP client, NPort IA Industrial Serial Device Servers, Network I/O servers, embedded computers and video over IP servers.
Moxa's two new Gigabit Ethernet switches — EDS-726 and EDS-518, both of which are ideal for industrial control and automation applications, generated a particular amount of interest at the show.
EtherDevice switch EDS-726 is a 26-port modular Gigabit managed switch that supports a redundant Gigabit Ethernet Turbo Ring.
This highly versatile, high performance switch meets the demands of harsh industrial applications.
EtherDevice switch EDS-518 is an 18-port Gigabit managed switch, supporting many intelligent network management functions, including QoS, IGMP Snooping/GMRP, VLAN and IEEE 802.1X.
Another product featured at the show was AWK-1100, an industrial IEEE 802.11g wireless AP/Bridge/AP client, which is designed to be used with Ethernet switches and other Ethernet-ready devices to provide ready access to a wireless LAN.
Features include WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security capability, operating temperature range from 0 - 60°C and redundant power inputs.
In addition to the industrial Ethernet switch series and wireless Ethernet products, Moxa's Network I/O server solution — ioLogik 4000 series — also received a huge response.
The ioLogik 4000 is designed to connect a variety of sensors and electrical, electronic and mechanical devices to computers and applications over standard Ethernet networks and the Internet, helping to link the analogue world with the digital world.
