Ethernet Direct Announces New Eagle Series EtherNet/IP & Modbus Enabled Switches

California, U.S.A., July 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions offers a new portfolio of Eagle switches especially designed for Multi-protocol integration providing seamless communication between Field bus & Industrial Ethernet. With the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT), devices in smart factories are looking for solutions to improve their operational efficiency and most plants have complex systems. The need for protocol integration enables a high performance network and interoperability between multiple devices.

The Ethernet Direct Eagle series “EtherNet/IP and Modbus Enabled” Industrial full gigabit managed switches offers optimized performance, efficiency, and flexibility for PLC network. Our plug-n-play protocol-enabled interoperability switches can be monitored on the SCADA system to enhance manageability of PLC networks. The compliance with mainstream Ethernet-based protocols offers industrial automation applications with simplified deployment. These industrial switches are tailor made with enhanced features for powerful EtherNet/IP networks such as IGMP snooping v1/v2/v3 up to 1023 groups, IGMP querier and multicast source detection. The ITU-G.8032 ERPS V2 allows ultra-speed network redundancy recovery in less than 20 ms at 250 devices in a ring network topology while transmitting/receiving data at full network speed. The Eagle switches support multiple ERPS instances and allow different VLANs to have their own ERPS instances.

Advantages of EtherNet/IP & Modbus Enabled Switches:

  • Multi-protocol integration to enhance industrial network interoperability & reliability in existing PLC networks
