The EDS-408A Series is designed especially for industrial applications. The switches support a variety of useful management functions, such as Turbo Ring, Turbo Chain, ring coupling, IGMP snooping, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, port-based VLAN, QoS, RMON, bandwidth management, port mirroring, and warning by email or relay. The ready-to-use Turbo Ring can be set up easily using the web-based management interface, or with the DIP switches located on the top panel of the EDS-408A switches.

Additional Features and Benefits

  • DHCP Option 82 for IP address assignment with different policies

  • Supports EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP and PROFINET  protocols for device management and monitoring

  • EtherNet/IP EDS (Electronic Data Sheet) file, custom AOI (Add-On Instructions) and FactoryTalk® View faceplate available

  • PROFINET GSDML file and SIMATIC STEP 7 device icons available 

  • Port mirroring for online debugging

  • Port-based VLAN, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, and GVRP to ease network planning

  • QoS (IEEE 802.1p and TOS/DiffServ) to increase determinism

  • RMON for proactive and efficient network monitoring

  • SNMPv1/v2c/v3 for different levels of network management security

  • Bandwidth management to prevent unpredictable network status
