MOXA’s EDS-528E

MOXA’s EDS-528E

MOXA’s EDS-528E is a new 28-port Ethernet switch that was designed to address the current Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) trend, which is seeing more and more devices connected to networks. The EDS-528E has satisfied the requirements of the IEC 62443-4-2 standard, ensuring that it can be deployed securely on industrial networks. The EDS-528E also carries various industrial-grade certifications, such as EN 50121-4 and IEC 61850-3, making it ideally suited for industrial solar, rail wayside, and factory automation industries, as well as intelligent transportation.

Flexible Switch for IIoT Network Infrastructures
The EDS-528E has various built-in connection ports, including 4 Gigabit combo ports with RJ45 and SFP slots, and 24 copper ports allowing greater flexibility for IIoT networks and applications. The EDS-528E’s compact design makes it ideally suited for installations where there are space restrictions. In addition, the compact DIN-rail form factor, high port density, and intelligent management capabilities make the EDS-528E a very cost-effective switch to help unlock the total value of IIoT network infrastructures.

Enhanced Security to Reduce Risks on IIoT Networks
The EDS-528E supports MOXA’s latest firmware Turbo Pack 3, which provides enhanced security functionalities, and complies with the IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard. By utilizing Turbo Pack 3 firmware, the EDS-528E now supports enhanced cyber security features, allowing users to raise the security level of the devices and prevent unauthorized access and malicious intrusions to ensure the integrity and reliability of the network.

Added Stability for Reliable Network Infrastructures
Similar to other models in the EDS E Series, the EDS-528E was designed for maximum reliability and minimum downtime. The industrial-design of the EDS-528E provides strong protection against high-voltage electrical transients, severe shock and vibration resistance, and can operate reliably in temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C. These features significantly contributed to the EDS-528E achieving the EN 50121-4 and IEC 61850-3 certifications. The EDS-528E also features Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain redundancy with trunking functionalities for high bandwidth communications, which support recovery times under 20 ms for networks with up to 250 switches. In addition, RSTP/STP and MSTP redundancy provide compatibility with enterprise and other third-party network infrastructures. The industrial-grade design of the EDS-528E makes it very well suited for deployment in the tough, industrial environment conditions.
