Advantech adds the EKI-7629CI and EKI-7656CI to its line of wide temperature, industrial Ethernet switches
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has added two wide temperature models to its EKI series of industrial Ethernet switches, the EKI-7629CI and the EKI-7656CI. These wide temperature, -40 to 167°C (-40 to 75°C), products provide improved reliability and performance for any network infrastructure.
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 industry-standard 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 self-healing ring communications, network traffic management and security, IGMP Query/Snooping for Ethernet/IP networks, and diagnostic and remote management functions including Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) integration.
