Advantech EtherNet/IP- and Profinet-compatible switches

The EKI-5500/5600 PN/PNMA and EI series of industrial switches have been designed to communicate through Profinet and Ethernet/IP. They meet the Profinet RT standard and support media redundancy protocol as well as being ODVA-certified to meet the requirements of Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). The switches come with a compact metal housing that is IP30-rated to protect against dust. Their wide power input (8.4 to 52.8 Vdc) is dedicated to operating in areas of unstable power and rugged environments. These entry-level managed switches include the most essential functions to communicate directly with Siemens by the use of GSDML files and Rockwell PLCs through the integration of Faceplate.
