EKI-7526I and EKI-7526MI are cost effective managed industrial Ethernet switches which support 16 x 10/100Base-TX fast Ethernet ports. Traditional fiber optic ports can be used for up-linking and long distance transmissions to flexibly fit the field requests. The long MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) ensures low operation and maintenance costs. All Ethernet ports have memory buffers that support the store-and-forward mechanism, which assures that data can be transmitted properly. Both EKI-7526MI and EKI-7526I support advanced network standards to optimize network performance, reduce maintenance costs, and secure network safety.
