Moxa announced the launch of its next-generation industrial Ethernet switch networking solutions, the EDS-4000/G4000 Series. The EDS-4000/G4000 Series includes 68 models designed to help Moxa’s customers industrial Ethernet switch networkingbuild futureproof industrial networks to strengthen operational resilience in industrial spaces such as power, transportation, maritime, and factory automation.

While OT/IT convergence is accelerating, enhanced network security, high performance, strong reliability, and advanced usability become paramount to building next-generation industrial networks that strengthen operational resilience. 

  • Industry-leading Network Security: The EDS-4000/G4000 Series IEC 62443-4-2 certified Ethernet switches feature built-in hardened security developed by following the stringent software development lifecycle described in the standard. Along with Moxa’s extensive network security portfolio, Moxa helps create a secure network foundation to safeguard and futureproof industrial operations.
  • Performance for Mass Deployments: As the number of connected devices in industrial operations grows exponentially, the EDS-4000/G4000 Series provides multiple interface combinations with up to 14 ports and a range of options including fast Ethernet, Gigabit, 2.5GbE uplinks, SFP, and IEEE 802.3bt PoE connectivity. This enables customers to connect more devices, especially in applications such as intelligent transportation systems that require high-power and high-bandwidth networking.
  • Multiple Industrial Certifications: The EDS-4000/G4000 Series is certified for NEMA TS2, EN 50121-4, IEC 61850-3/IEEE 16132, DNV2, ATEX Zone 23, Class I Division 23, to fulfill the needs of a wide variety of industrial applications. The EDS-4000/G4000 Series also features Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain fast network recovery to ensure smooth operations.
  • Advanced Usability: The improved web GUI provides a more intuitive way for users to perform configuration and network management. The rotatable power module offers flexibility to field engineers when they are installing devices and maintaining the network. In addition, the LED indicators on two sides of the device help engineers easily identify the status of networking devices.
