Product Overview:

The EICP8M series of compact managed switching hubs provide management functionality in specific applications where 0° to +60°C temperatures are expected. Both copper and fiber models are available.

Designed with the conventional features usual in standard Plug and Play switches, the EICP8M series includes such important benefits as  RapidRing®, VLAN, trunking, Quality of Service (QoS) ,  SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and a programmable fault relay that can be connected to a supervisory system. Individual port parameters and other feature settings are configurable. 

The EICP8M series is designed with an interactive web server, accessible from any Internet compatible PC on the local network.

Configuration is done either from a web browser or through a console port connected to a Windows-based terminal emulation program such as HyperTerminal. Port parameters (data rate, duplex, and flow control) can be pre-set via the console port or auto-negotiated.

Each model in this series performs as an SNMP agent allowing access to information on the status of its various ports. The SNMP agent is comprised of a collection of managed objects that can be queried by a manager to indicate the status of the network or any particular device. When this data is displayed in an easily understood format, operators and maintenance personnel, at a central location, can check the entire network by observing selected devices and detect potential problems before they occur.

Either straight-through or crossover cables may be used to connect any of the Auto-MDIX ports to NICs or another hub. In addition to one power LED, each port has an LED showing link/activity/data rate by color: green for 100 Mbps and yellow for 10 Mbps. Flashing indicates port activity.

The EICP8M series is shipped with a DIN-rail clip for installation with a TS-35 DIN-rail. If direct mounting to a sub-panel is needed, an optional panel mounting bracket, shipped with the product, can be installed after removing the DIN-rail clip.
