The EDS-G500E Series of industrial Ethernet switches easily upgrades an existing large-scale network to Gigabit speed. The switches can also be used to build a new full Gigabit backbone. They are equipped with 8, 12, or 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to four fiber optic ports.
In addition to Level 4 EMS protection to repel electromagnetic interference, severe shock/vibration resistance, and a new thermal fin design that can reduce switch temperatures (5°C or more), the EDS-G500E series will be available with Class 1, Div. 2/ATEX Zone 2 ratings for safe use in petrochemical facilities, processing plants and other classified areas. It will also feature redundant Ethernet Turbo Ring, Turbo Chain, RSTP/STP, and MSTP to increase system reliability and the availability of the network backbone.
