Moxa’s new EDS-4000/G4000 Series managed Industrial Ethernet switches are available in 68 different models with 8 to 14 ports and multiple interface combinations, including Fast Ethernet (100 Mb/s), Gigabit Ethernet (1 GbE), 2.5 GbE, small form-factor pluggable (SFP) and IEEE 802.3bt 90-Watt PoE. They also feature Rapid Spanning Tree and Spanning Tree Protocols (RSTP/STP) as well as Moxa’s proprietary Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain fast network recovery technologies, which achieve redundancy in new and existing networks and reliably exhibit sub-20 ms recovery times at 250 switches to ensure smooth operation. Additional features include a compact housing with LED indicators on two sides for quick and easy status updates and various configurations optimized for confined spaces, a rotatable power module that simplifies installation and maintenance, a wide range of power input options for flexible deployment and MXstudio support for easy installation, operation, maintenance and diagnostics. 

“As industrial automation applications continue to evolve and the IT/OT convergence trend continues to gain momentum, industrial OT architectures will require enhanced networking capabilities and network security,” said Richard Wood, product marketing division manager – industrial networking and cybersecurity at Moxa. “Developed in response to these prevailing market trends, our new EDS/G4000 Series managed Industrial Ethernet switches successfully transform the networking-evolved concept into tangible, effective enhancements ranging from high reliability and enhanced usability to improved industrial networking capabilities, security, operational resilience and futureproofing.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
