With one of the most critical nodes in industrial networking being Ethernet switches, engineers undertaking these projects need reliable industrial networking components that are cost-effective and able to withstand harsh industrial environments. To help better address these needs, Moxa and Allied Electronics & Automation announced that the companies are partnering to offer Moxa's new EDS-2000-EL series unmanaged Ethernet switches.

As observed by the partners:

Engineers face many obstacles when connecting older equipment to local networks or the cloud as part of modernization and overhaul projects. When these replacements, expansions, and upgrades occur, there are often space constraints for installing products in existing cabinets or machines.
The entire EDS-2000-EL series, which includes both the EDS-2005-EL 5-port switch and the EDS-2008-EL 8-port switch, delivers long-lasting durability and low latency for MES [manufacturing execution system] applications, is packed with intelligent features and provides time and cost savings by facilitating efficient network deployment.

The companies further note the 5-port EDS-2005-EL offers a tiny footprint, the size of a credit card, making it ideal for use in compact machines and control panels. The series also supports Quality of Service (QoS) via a simple DIP switch without requiring additional configuration, making these switches ideal for factory automation where optimized data transmission is necessary.

With 65 million devices connected worldwide, Moxa is known as a specialist in edge connectivity, industrial computing and network infrastructure systems for enabling connectivity for the industrial internet of things (IIoT), and adds that it has been working with engineers for over 35 years helping them to identify the right connectivity products for their industrial applications.

"We're excited about our rapid growth and success since launching our partnership with Allied Electronics, and we look forward to expanding our reach of products and services to more engineers facing common industrial connectivity challenges," commented Joel Kelsen, Channel Division Manager for the Americas at Moxa.

Kelsen added, "We're confident that our latest lineup of unmanaged switches can support engineers looking for cost-effective and easy solutions to connect older equipment to their network. The Allied Electronics team has supported us in making the EDS-2000-EL series easily accessible with simple ordering and fast delivery."
