Advantech Expands Industrial Ethernet Switch Line with Wide Temperature Models

The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has introduced two new wide temperature models of its EKI series of Industrial Ethernet switches, the EKI-7629CI and EKI-7656CI.  These new models join the line of wide operating temperature (-40 to 167°F) products.

The EKI-7629CI is an unmanaged switch that 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 fiber optic transceiver modules.

For applications requiring more control, the EKI-7656CI managed switch features 16 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.
