High power industrial Ethernet switch
Advantech EKI-2726FHPI is designed for industrial applications, can do PoE+, and is DIN-rail mountable.
Advantech’s EKI-2726FHPI is targeted at PoE enabled devices, which are quite often used by IP cameras and high power demand switch projects. Compliant to IEEE 802.3af/at standard, the EKI-2726FHPI device offers four GbE + two SFP ports and the ability to do PoE+, allowing it to supply 15.4 W at 48V to 30 W at 55 V for high power applications in each of its four ports.
It is DIN rail mountable with industrial grade dual 12~48 V dc power input. The wide temperature range of -40-75 C allows it to survive adverse conditions. The Jumbo Frame Support can work with high powered video surveillance equipment. The EKI-2726FHPI is designed for industrial applications offering UL508 and Class I, Division 2 certification plus a compact metal housing contributes to the IP30 rating.
It is also UL/cUL approved and adds IEEE802.3af/at PoE standard certification.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
