A wide range of the EKI family of Industrial Ethernet Switches and media converters from the Industrial Automation Group of Advantech has received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Class 1, Division 2 (groups A, B, C, and D) certification for use in hazard locations.

The EKI-2000 and 7000 series of products are now approved for use in hazardous environments. These switches are available in 5-port to 18-port configurations, with both standard copper and fiber connections, 10/100Mbps and gigabit (1000Mbps) speeds, and in both unmanaged and managed models. Managed models offer manual port settings, advanced network traffic control, an ultra-fast 10ms self-healing ring for high availability, and remote monitoring capabilities. The EKI Media Converters allow connections to be extended over optical fiber cable up to nearly 70 miles (110km) and are available in both 100Mbps and gigabit (100Mbps) speeds, with various types of fiber connectors.

Specifications include DIN-rail mount, redundant 12 to 48 VDC power inputs, 4,000 VDC Ethernet ESD protection, power line surge (EFT) protection of 3,000 VDC, and feature standard -10 to 60°C or extended -40 to 75°C operating temperature range to ensure system uptime.
