HardwarePT has added Advantech’s EKI-4654R IEC61850-3-compliant managed Ethernet switch for grid automation applications to its product portfolio.

IEC61850-3 certification ensures environmental and EMI immunity of network devices used in substations and allows the EKI-4564R to be interconnected with a range of devices, providing reliability and consistency in power and energy applications.

The EKI-4654R features 24 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports and two 1000Base-T SFP slots and has a range of redundant power inputs (two 100-240VAC/100-240VDC) allowing connection to two separate power supplies, guaranteeing operation in the event of sources going offline.

In addition, the dual connections can be used to connect multiple managed switches in a self-healing ring configuration, which provides a secondary communication path in the event that the primary is interrupted.

In addition to an open-standard Spanning Tree (SFP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), the EKI-4654R also supports Advantech’s X-Ring, which guarantees recovery in less than 10ms.

Furthermore, the EKI-4654R features the ‘Dual X-Ring’ technology, allowing it to be a hub for an existing X-Ring, so that users need only one switch to link redundant rings.

The EKI-4654R has many advanced features such as: IP security, VLAN, QoS, port mirroring, MAC security, IGMP snooping, port trunking, CoS/TOS, e-mail warnings, SNMP trap, and SMTP.

For user access control, the EKI-4654R supports port-based IEEE 802.1x user authentication from a centralised Radius server.

The EKI-4654R is fanless with a 1U-size rear-end wiring, an LED indicator, front panel LEDs, and high port density providing simple management and easy maintenance.
