The versatile modular design of the compact EDS-608 Series allows users to combine fiber and copper modules to create switch solutions suitable for any automation network. The EDS-608’s modular design lets you install 8 Fast Ethernet ports, and the advanced Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms) technology, RSTP/STP, and MSTP help increase the reliability and availability of your industrial Ethernet network.

Models with an extended operating temperature range of -40 to 75°C are also available. The EDS-608 Series supports several reliable and intelligent functions, including IEEE 1588 PTPv2, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, LLDP, DHCP Option 82, SNMP Inform, QoS, IGMP snooping, VLAN, TACACS+, IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, SSH, SNMPv3, and more, making the Ethernet switches suitable for any harsh industrial environment.
