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.
