EtherNet/IP and Profinet-enabled Ethernet switches
The EDS-405A/408A-EIP and EDS-405A/408A-PN Ethernet switches by Moxa are designed to integrate legacy networks and feature management functions to support most applications that require an Ethernet switch.
Moxa's EDS-405A/408A-EIP and EDS-405A/408A-PN switches are designed to integrating legacy networks, eliminating the need for additional configurations and modifications, and reducing deployment time. With EtherNet/IP embedded, the EDS-405A/408A-EIP switches are visible with custom faceplates in FactoryTalk View industrial management software, for greater operational and network visibility in factory automation HMIs. AOIs and EDS Files are available for all Moxa switch models to ensure a truly integrated switch installation. They feature ready-to-use Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain network redundancy technologies, which allow fast network recovery if a connection failure occurs.
Moxa EDS-405A/408A-EIP and EDS-405A/408A-PN switches are available in 5- or 8-port DIN-rail mount designs. Both provide rugged performance in the harsh environments often found at the edge of an industrial network. They also support a variety of useful management functions to accommodate most applications that require an Ethernet switch, such as IGMP snooping, IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, QoS, port mirroring, SNMP, bandwidth management, and warning by email or relay.
With embedded Profinet, the EDS-405A/408A-PN switches can be easily integrated into the Siemens Simatic Step 7 engineering tool. It is more convenient for automation engineers to configure through Step 7 and monitor with automation HMIs. GSD files (which also includes a faceplate) are available for all Moxa switch models to ensure a truly integrated switch installation.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
