The EDS500 product family of rugged Ethernet/SHDSL managed switches and FSK-based analog modems has been specifically designed for critical infrastructure and industrial applications with enhanced, robust communication technology that ensures minimal downtime and enables predictive failure notification and encrypted management.
Depending on the model, data communication features two-wire copper lines, starting at very low baud rates (FSK-based analog modems) or SHDSL/EFM connections with up to 15 Mbps data rate, and ranges up to Ethernet (copper and optical). SFP slots and suitable SFP modules provide connectivity over optical multimode or single mode fibers up to 80 km, both for Duplex LC (two fibers) and Simplex LC (bi-directional over one fiber). Several models provide Power-over-Ethernet ports (IEEE 802.3at / PoE+ and above).
The EDS500 managed switches for optical and copper Ethernet are certified for IEC 61850.
The Ethernet/SHDSL switches support a variety of useful, reliable and intelligent functions, such as MSTP/RSTP/STP (IEEE 802.1Q/w/D), VLAN, IEEE 802.1X, HTTPS, SNMPv3, SSH, QoS, rate limiting, ACL/packet filter, RMON, LLDP, L2TP, IGMP snooping, and many more, making EDS500 suitable for any harsh industrial environment.
