Advantech Expands Industrial Ethernet Switch Line with Wide Temperature Models
(Cincinnati, Ohio - 09/02/09) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces two new wide temperature models of its popular EKI series of Industrial Ethernet switches, the EKI-7629CI and EKI-7656CI. These new models join the growing line of wide operating temperature -40 to 167°C (-40 to 75°C) products, providing unparalleled reliability and performance for any network infrastructure.
The EKI-7629CI is an unmanaged switch and features eight 10/100Base-TX ports and two combination 1000M (gigabit) ports with both copper/RJ45 connections and modular Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) slots for use of industry-standard fiber optic transceiver modules.
For applications requiring more control, the EKI-7656CI managed switch features sixteen 10/100Base-TX ports and two combination 1000M (gigabit) ports with both copper/RJ45 connections and SFP slots. Managed features include ultra-fast self-healing ring communications, advanced network traffic management and security, IGMP Query/Snooping for Ethernet/IP networks, and numerous diagnostic and remote management functions including Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) integration.
Other Advantech wide temperature models include:
Managed Ethernet Switches: EKI-7554MI, EKI-7554SI, EKI-7559MI, EKI-7559SI, EKI-7659CI
Unmanaged Ethernet Switches: EKI-2525I, EKI-2528I
PoE Switches and Injectors: EKI-2526PI, EKI-2701PSI
Media Converters: EKI-2541MI, EKI-2541SI, EKI-2741LXI
Ideal for demanding environments, these ruggedized switches have been designed to withstand extreme shock and vibration, with extended operating temperatures of -40 to 167°F (-40 to 75°C). Redundant 12 to 48 VDC power inputs with 3,000 VDC surge protection provide protection from power disturbances. Their compact allows them to fit in even the tightest spaces, using either standard DIN-rail or direct panel mounts. Plus, they are UL/CSA, FCC, CE, and RoHS/WEEE approved.
