One Modular Platform for Diverse Applications
As industrial networks continue to evolve, the connectivity requirements for industrial applications grow as well with more devices becoming interconnected. Building a flexible, scalable, and reliable network capable of accommodating the growing scale and diversity of industrial networks is now becoming a major concern. Therefore, businesses are looking for truly versatile solutions that are easy to maintain to ensure smooth operations while keeping costs down.
Introducing the Moxa MDS-G4000 Series of modular switches, offering a mix-and-match Gigabit platform that provides adaptive networking capacity to meet the requirements of numerous constantly changing scenarios through high scalability, flexibility, reliability, and effortless maintenance.
The MDS-G4000 Series supports a broad range of media interface modules. We outfitted each module with 4 ports to allow for even more combinations, letting you scale your network at a granular level based on your needs. No need to worry about future scalability or changing to different types of media ports, the MDS-G4000 Series provides a single adjustable platform to plan ahead.
The hot-swappable modular design of the MDS-G4000 Series translates into minimal downtime. It only takes a few seconds to replace the media or isolated power modules without having to shut down the switch. With the robust and hot-swappable MDS-G4000 Series, you can enhance productivity for 24/7 automation.
The MDS-G4000 Series features a rugged die-cast frames and encapsulated module design that allows the switches to operate reliably in harsh environments. The passive backplane design is even more reliable than before and eliminates a single point of failure. Should a module fail, you can simply swap it out instead of having to replace the whole frame, all without interrupting the operation of the switch. Through rigid testing of both the hardware and the operation system, we made the MDS-G4000 Series the perfect choice for networks that require maximized durability and reliability.
When dealing with a large number of networking devices, it’s now easier than ever to configure and monitor operations in real-time using Moxa’s MXstudio software. Whenever there is an issue with one of the switches, the user-friendly interface quickly helps you pinpoint the problem through the visualized dashboard, drastically reducing the time spent performing on-site troubleshooting.
The compact size together with 3 mounting options* allow the MDS-G4000 Series to save cabinet space and suit different methods of installation. Convenient, tool-free module and terminal block installation combined with an innovate quick-release DIN-rail design further simplify and speed up deployment by eliminating the need for specialized equipment.
