With its compact physical size, EDS14 is the most versatile NAS server in Synology’s product line and has been optimized for deployment in a variety of environments. Apart from the increased thermal endurance range, EDS14 tolerates dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24V, making it compatible with a variety of power sources such as cigarette lighter receptacle in an automobile. A schedulable DC output up to 1A is available to power an external device where power outlet is out of reach. Peripheral devices can be powered on, off, or reset remotely according to a schedule using DiskStation Manager’s management interface (available from DSM 5.0). Equipped with two LAN ports, EDS14 protects local network tasks and Internet connection from mutual interference. With the support for PoE splitters, EDS14 is also ideal for deployment in a PoE environment.
