Ethernet Switch for Grid Automation

June 1, 2009
The EKI-4654R is a fanless, IEC61850-3-compliant managed Ethernet switch for grid automation applications. 
IEC61850-3 certification ensures environmental and EMI immunity of network devices used in substations and allows the switch to be interconnected with a wide range of devices. The switch features 24 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports and two 1000Base-T SFP slots. Its range of redundant power inputs (2x 100~240VAC/100~240VDC) allows connection to two separate power supplies, designed to guarantee operation in the event of sources going offline. The dual connections can be used to connect multiple managed switches in a self-healing ring configuration. Other switch features include IP security, VLAN, QoS, Port Mirroring, MAC security, IGMP Snooping, Port Trunking, CoS/TOS, e-mail warnings, SNMP Trap and SMTP.Advantech Corp., Industrial Automation Groupwww.advantech-eautomation.com800.205.7940
