The Challenge with Managed Switches

For machine builders and automation engineers, monitoring Ethernet switches from a SCADA/HMI offers the ability to react to problems in time to minimize system downtime. However, deploying managed switches often adds unnecessary complexity during both system setup and operation maintenance.

Making a Smarter Switch

Moxa’s super-slim SDS-3008 smart switch is designed to meet these challenges. With its simplified protocol configuration, flexible mounting design, easy-to-use interface, and slim form factor, the SDS-3008 smart switch is the perfect fit for control cabinets in any smart manufacturing application.

Ethernet Switch Deployment: Common Challenges

  • Cost

    For applications that require only basic monitoring and control functions, it’s not economical for engineers to choose expensive managed switches, which often support too many unneeded functions.

  • Space Limitations

    Engineers work with different types of control cabinets, and each one has space or installation limitations.

  • Complex Configuration

    IT-oriented user interfaces, which are often very complicated and come with a steep learning curve for IA engineers, make it harder to update configurations and handle basic troubleshooting tasks.
