Moxa Launches PROFINET-Enabled Industrial Managed Switches

PROFINET-Enabled Industrial Managed Switches

Moxa is pleased to release the EDS-405A/408A-PN series of PROFINET-enabled managed switches for industrial PLC network applications. With the plug-n-play feature, users can directly integrate and manage the switches in existing SCADA systems without the need for additional configurations and modifications. Fast network recovery (under 20ms at a 250-switch load) and 10s fast booting time ensures high network availability and reliability.

Advanced Efficiency with Plug-n-Play PROFINET Switches

The EDS-405A/408A-PN series provide advanced efficiency for PLC networks. These plug-n-play PROFINET-enabled switches can be directly installed into existing PLC networks to reduce deployment time. Switches can also be visibly managed and monitored on existing SCADA systems.

System Performance with Fast Network Recovery and Booting Time
The EDS-405A/408A-PN series support Moxa’s Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain network redundancy technologies. When a connection failure occurs, they enable fast network recovery under 20ms (with 250 switches loads) for high network reliability. These switches also come with fast booting time in under 10s to ensure system availability and reduce maintenance costs.

EDS-405A/408A-PN Series

  • PROFINET enabled by default
  • Support Turbo Ring/ Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms at 250 switches) for network redundancy
  • PROFINET GSD file, SIMATIC STEP 7 device icons are included
