Advantech ProView EKI-5x Industrial Ethernet Switches are convergence switches for process control and IT networking management. They use Modbus/TCP to communicate with the SCADA software and SNMP to communicate with the NMS (Networking Management System) at the same time. This allows full read control over the devices either for control engineers or for IT. The devices come with Port-based QoS for deterministic data transmission. This allows the priority ports to prioritize the traffic coming over those ports and delay the less immediately necessary data over the remaining ports. EKI-5x switches use the highest quality components and operate in temperatures of -40 and 75°C along with EMS Level 3 protection to repel electromagnetic interface for industrial resistance.
