Ethernet switches and media converters
Advantech's EKI-3525M and EKI-3525S Ethernet switches and media converters feature 4+1 multi-mode and single-mode fiber port fast Ethernet switches and are IP40 certified and have a power input range of up to 52.8VDC.
Advantech's EKI-3525M and EKI-3525S Ethernet switches and media converters feature 4+1 multi-mode and single-mode fiber port fast Ethernet switches that have 12~48 VDC power dual input.
Both models have a wide range of power input from 8.4VDC to 52.8VDC for long distances and to prevent them from being affected by drops in power. Both are also IP40 certified and exceed the basic requirements of many industries.
In the event of an error, all the models include a self-diagnostic and detection function which helps engineers quickly establish where the fault lies. User manuals are difficult to find in the heat of the moment so to help, all models include a QR code which allows engineers to scan the code and immediately access the model's user manual.
Both models feature green solutions that automatically adjust power consumption by detecting the link status and cable length. Designed with 1/2 "VIP" ports to get optimal bandwidth for media traffics through VIP ports, users can experience better performance of multimedia streaming preferred through prioritized bandwidth setting. The devices come with compact housing to provide customers with a clever solution to install in space limited industrial environments. In the event of a power failure and/or connection loop issue, an integrated LED will display an alarm to notify administrators.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
