The switches are designed to provide advanced traffic control for optimum network performance and security, along with self-healing fiber optic ring capabilities to ensure network uptime in adverse environments. The EKI-7554MI and EKI-7554SI offer four 10/100Base-TX ports and two 100Base-FX fiber ports, while the EKI-7559MI and EKI-7559SI offer eight 10/100Base-TX ports and two 100Base-FX fiber ports. The dual fiber connections can be used to connect multiple managed switches in a self-healing ring configuration, which provides a secondary communications path in the event that the primary is interrupted. These industrially hardened switches are equipped with SC type optical fiber connections, and are available in multi-mode (MI models) and single-mode (SI models) fiber configurations.
