UL certification for Advantech

September 2009 Fieldbus & Industrial Networking

Advantech’s EKI-1351, 1352, 1521, 1522 and 1524 serial device servers and EKI-1221, 122 and 1224 Modbus gateways have received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Class 1, Division 2 certification for use in hazardous locations. This makes them suitable for use in hazardous areas in the oil and gas, mining and chemical processing industries.

The EKI-1220 series of Modbus Gateways enables quick and easy integration of Modbus ASCII and RTU devices with Industrial Ethernet networks and Modbus/TCP enabled devices. Supported configurations include: Ethernet master to serial slave; serial slave to Ethernet master and concurrent operation of both modes.

The EKI-1300/1500 series device servers are a drop-in solution to add network connectivity to non-networked devices and equipment. With a wired Ethernet or 802.11b/g wireless connection, and one or more RS232/422/485 serial ports, device servers encapsulate serial data for transport over Internet Protocol (IP) networks.

Housed in a compact and thin metal DIN-rail mount chassis, EKI-1000 models are rugged in design for demanding industrial applications. They include dual 12 to 48 VDC power inputs, power line surge (EFT) protection of 3000 VDC, and 4000 VDC Ethernet ESD protection to ensure maximum system uptime and uninterrupted communications.
