Advantech’s Industrial Automation Group has released a new range of small Ethernet switches, ideal for factory and machine automation applications.
The latest switches comprise 10/100M Ethernet (EKI-2548I, EKI-2548SI, and EKI-2548MI) and full Gigabit (EKI-2728MI, EKI-2748FI, and EKI-2748CI). They can cope with multifarious communication requirements.
EKI-2748 modules feature Digital Monitoring Interface (DMI) that inspect various factors of the SFP module including voltage, temperature, Current and Rx and Tx power, resulting in consistent connectivity. The modules also include DIP switch configuration for simplifying port alarm and configuration methodology.
All these systems comply with wide range of temperatures and they require a small area for installation.
