The Best Fit for Factory Automation
The smart switch simplifies daily tasks with its quick installation and easy configuration. In addition, it is monitorable and easy to maintain throughout the entire product lifecycle. “When we designed our smart switch, we wanted to ensure it was user-friendly and user-oriented. From our market research, we discovered that when a network upgrade is required, the most common concerns for engineers are the limited space available in cabinets and the time spent learning how to manage the switch” said Jack Lin, Product Manager of Moxa’s Industrial Ethernet Infrastructure Division. "That’s why we developed the smart switch. The smart switch 3-2-1 design supports the functions required by IA engineers and automation machine builders, but does not require them to have IT-based network management skills. We believe the smart switch is an ideal solution for the manufacturing industry, especially machine builders who are on their way towards the IIoT and industry 4.0. Even though we are delighted with the awards conferred on our smart switches by internationally recognized organizations, it is the positive feedback we have received from our customers that really lets us know how helpful our switches are for the automation industry.”


The Smart Switch 3-2-1 Design Feature

Three protocols in one device

Smart switches support EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and Modbus/TCP industrial protocols, and the configuration can be done in one click via the smart UI.

Two centimeters wide with DIN-rail and rack-mounting options

Moxa’s smart switches have a compact size that allows them to fit in almost any control cabinet, and they support both DIN-rail and rackmount installation.

One-page dashboard

Our SDS-3008 Series has a smart UI that features a graphical function menu and one-page dashboard, making it easier for users to clearly visualize the status and operate the switch.
