Advantech introduces its EKI-7659C family of managed industrial Ethernet switches. This compact and industrially hardened switch offers advanced traffic control for optimum network performance and security along with rapid self-healing fiber optic ring capabilities to ensure network uptime in adverse environments. The 10-port device features eight fast Ethernet (100Base-TX) and two gigabit (1,000Base-T) ports which support both copper (RJ-45) connections and optional industry-standard small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules, giving users the power and flexibility to configure the switch for their application requirements. About the size of an "AA" battery, SFPs are available in single-mode and multi-mode fiber models for fiber connections ranging from 1,800 feet to nearly 70 miles.
