Top 5 Features Customers Like About EDS-G4000 Ethernet Switch

Since its launch last month, we’ve been taking the new Moxa EDS-G4000 Ethernet switch out to our customers. They’re impressed with the built-in security, IEC certification, and much more. Here’s the top 5 features that they like most.

1.) Security. The EDS-G4000 is built around a new operating system with built-in hardened security. It’s the world’s first IEC 62443-4-2 certified Ethernet switch to be certified by IECEE and received the world’s first IEC 62443-4-2 certification for industrial networking.

2.) 2.5GbE SFPs. The EDS-G4000 series are Moxa’s first switches to have 2.5GbE. With up to 6 ports of 2.5GbE SFP, customers now have more versatility for increasing throughput at the edge of their network. The jump from 1GbE to 10GbE is a big investment in hardware, but now customers have an excellent option to increase to 2.5GbE speeds with lower costs than a full 10GbE upgrade. Customers like that the 2.5GbE ports on switch accept both 1GbE and 2.5GbE SFP’s for easy migration. This switch having 2.5GbE ports has introduced a whole new family of 2.5GbE SFP transceivers. The distance ratings for the new 2.5GbE SFP transceivers also match Moxa’s current 1GbE SFP transceiver distance ratings, which allows customers to deploy the new EDS-G4000 series today and repurpose their existing Moxa 1GbE SFP transceivers where needed.

3.) Rotatable power supply. There is now a new family of power supplies that bolt-on as an integrated part of the EDS-G4000 series switches. The rotatable power supply module offers flexibility to field engineers when they are installing devices and maintaining the network. Flexibility includes a new 110VAC input voltage option and the ability to rotate the power supply’s inputs to bring power in from the top (electrical panels) or bring power in from the front (rack mounting/tight installation constraints). Serviceability means the external mounted design permits the power supply to be a separately serviced, maintained, or kept in maintenance inventory.

4.) 90-watt 802.3bt. Power-intensive PoE applications are now supported with up to 90-watt 802.3bt PoE. Customers like that the switch’s PoE ports can also be manually configured for up to 90w of PoE power. Choose the switch model you need with 4 ports in the EDS-4008 or 8 ports in the EDS-4012 and EDS-G4012. The combination of 90W PoE and 2.5GbE means customers in industrial applications can now deploy high-power PoE and high-bandwidth networking.

5.) Wide range of models. Customers like the EDS-4000/G4000 series comprehensive portfolio of 17 new base models for a total of 68 new switches to choose from. They also enjoyed the fact that Moxa kept a standard 10/100 switch in the EDS-4008, and included a “swiss army knife” EDS-4014 with all 3 speeds: FE+1GbE+2.5GbE. Moxa’s new EDS-4000/G4000 switches cover a wide range of options from 8 ports to 14 ports, including fixed fiber options with SC and ST connections.
