New TSN Ethernet switch for IIoT applications
Advantech now offers the EKI-8510G TSN Ethernet switch. The company has proactively participated in the CC-Link Partner Association’s (CLPA’s) initiatives, promoting CC-Link IE TSN applications to different industries. The switch obtained CC-Link IE TSN Class A & B certifications, allowing various applications in industrial environments.
The device is the next generation of industrial Ethernet switch supporting real-time communication via TSN technology, delivering determinism over Ethernet-based networks to ensure data delivery for critical time-sensitive applications. Created with industrial use cases in mind, it supports full layer two managed functionality and complies with EN 50121-4 transportation regulations for approval for railway track use. Equipped with 8Gbps ports and 2Gbps SFP ports, EKI-8510G offers high-speed transmission and an SFP socket for easy and flexible fibre connectivity.
Collaborating with CLPA, the company has taken part in the Automation Taipei exhibition for the previous three years, from 2020 to 2022, illustrating its development and commitment to ongoing success in TSN technology. The TSN technology framework is empowered by the development of interoperability and stability, permitting industrial operators to improve industrial communication automation, timing accuracy, and, furthermore, realising the blueprint of the IIoT.
