For machine builders and automation engineers, being able to monitor their Ethernet switches from a SCADA/HMI gives them a great overall view of their control systems, and the ability to react in time to minimize system downtime. In addition, the most common concern related to deploying managed switches is operational complexity, including both setup and subsequent management. 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.
Common Challenges for Ethernet Switch Deployment
WB2F code scanners easily integrate into compact devices
The new WB2F series of fixed-mount 2D code scanners is designed to read two-dimensional codes such as QR codes, DPM (Direct Parts Marking), Code39 and DataMatrix. With a built-in high-pixel CMOS sensor, this scanner easily integrates into compact inspection devices and can reliably read small code even from a distance of up to 150mm. Modern industrial manufacturing locations use code scanners to manage traceability at the part level, making WB2F a great choice for users with applications in factory automation (FA), automobile manufacturing, electronic-related equipment, medical fields and more.
