EKI-2525LI: The Smallest Industrial Ethernet Switch in the World

Date: 5/1/2018 12:00:00 AM


Taipei, Taiwan, Apr 30, 2018—Advantech, a leading supplier of industrial communication solutions, launches its 8cm-high EKI-2525LI Ethernet switch to the market, aiming at applications where space is a critical criteria for users.

The EKI-2525LI is an unmanaged 5-port Ethernet switch that comes in an ultra-small palm size, making it the ideal solution for environments with limited space, such as electronic boxes, cabinets, and high-density plants. 


Compact devices such as PLCs typically have a height of only approximately 10 cm. Conventional Ethernet switches, however, are usually taller than this, resulting in a waste of space. The EKI-2525LI overcomes this and can be easily fit into a rack-mount cabinet to maximize space utilization, thus providing an easy and immediate upgrade for industrial IoT applications.

The EKI-2525I can also be fitted into any already-wired electronic boxes or shelves where extra connectivity and communication service are require but space is limited, thus aiding businesses with key infrastructure upgrades.

Moreover, the EKI-2525LI can serve as an embedded device in any working equipment, such as kiosk, AGV, and CNC machines, thus ensuring smooth data transmission between embedded devices and thereby promoting seamless information communication.

EKI-2525LI is now available for order. For more information on how ultra-small Ethernet switches benefits your business and the product specifications, please visit Advantech website.
