Industrial PoE switch
The EDS-G205A-4PoE from Moxa features is designed for high-performance PoE applications and features 5 Gigabit ports and has short circuit detection to prevent burnouts.
Moxa released an industrial PoE+ switch that simultaneously supports both bandwidth-hungry and power-hungry applications, making it ideal for high-performance PoE applications. The EDS-G205A-4PoE features 5 Gigabit ports, 4 of which deliver up to 30 watts of power according to IEEE 802.3af/at PoE+ standards for Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE).
Installation, operation, and troubleshooting is further simplified for industrial users with Moxa's SmartPoE technology, which includes over-current protection, short circuit protection, and power status detection via LED indicators. The compact design and wide temperature support (40 to 75°C for select models) also means that the EDS-G205A-4PoE is at home in outdoor cabinets.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
