Overview
1.1 Introduction
The EKI-4524I is a cost-effective solution, which meets the high reliability requirements
demanded by industrial applications. The equipment supports both DC and AC power
inputs. Besides, the EKI-4524I is designed for the applications supposed to have
certain electric interference. Equipped with isolated power and isolated communication
ports, the device has high resistance toward electrical noise. It has been proved to
work well for any harsh applications.
1.1.1
High-Speed Transmissions
The EKI-4524I includes a switch controller that can automatically sense transmission
speeds (10/100 Mbps). The RJ-45 interface can also be auto-detected, so MDI or MDIX is automatically selected and a crossover cable is not required. All Ethernet ports
have memory buffers that support the store-and-forward mechanism. This assures that
data is properly transmitted.
1.1.2
19” Rack Mounting
The EKI-4524I comes with a rack-mounted kit and can be mounted in an EIA standard
size, 19-inch Rack. The Switch can be placed in a wiring closet with other equipment.
1.1.3
Advanced Protection
The power line of EKI-4524I supports up to 4,000 VDC EFT protection, which secures
equipment against unregulated voltage and makes systems safer and more reliable,
while 8,000 VDC ESD protection for Ethernet ports makes the equipment more suitable
for harsh environments.
1.1.4
Easy Troubleshooting
LED indicators make troubleshooting quick and easy. Each 10/100 Base-TX port has
LED indicators that display the link status, transmission speed and collision status.

2.3 Mounting
2.3.1
Rack mounting
EKI-4524I comes with a rack-mounted kit and can be mounted in an EIA standard size, 19-inch rack. The
Switch can be placed in a wiring closet with other equipment.
Perform the following steps to rack-mount the switch:
1. Position one bracket to align with the holes on one side of the switch and secure it with the smaller
bracket screws. Then attach the remaining bracket to the other side of the Switch.
Figure 2.2: Attach mounting brackets with screws
2. After attaching the mounting brackets, position the EKI-4524I in the rack by lining up the holes in the
brackets with the appropriate holes on the rack. Secure the Switch to the rack by a screwdriver with
the rack-mounting screws.
Figure 2.3: Mount the switch in the 19” rack
Note: For proper ventilation, allow about at least 4 inches (10 cm) of clearance on the front and 3.4
inches (8 cm) on the back of the Switch. This is especially important for enclosed rack installation.

2.4
Network Connection
The EKI-4524I has 24 x RJ-45 ports that support connection to 10 Mbps Ethernet, or 100 Mbps Fast
Ethernet, and half or full duplex operation. EKI-4524I can be connected to other hubs or switches via a
twisted-pair straight-through or crossover cable up to 100m long. The connection can be made from any
TX port of the EKI-4524I (MDI-X) to another hub or switch either MDI-X or uplink MDI port.
The EKI-4524I supports auto-crossover to make networking more easy and flexible. You can connect
any RJ-45 (MDI-X) station port on the switch to any device such as a switch, bridge or router.

2.6 Wiring Relay Alarm Contacts
The fail-safe relay alarm contacts are labeled as 8 and 10 as the figure shown below. With a Normally
Close circuit formed by wiring with an external power and an alarm device (a buzzer or a flashing LED),
system will detect the power failure event. If a failure event occurs, the relay inside EKI-4524I will act as
an open switch, and therefore break the external circuit. The fail-safe design is intended for triggering the
connected alarm device for warning purposes.

Troubleshooting
Verify that you are using the right power cord/adapter. Please don’t use a power
adapter with DC outputs higher than the power rating of this equipment, or it will be
damaged.
Select the proper UTP cable to construct the user network. Use unshielded twisted-pair
(UTP) or shielded twisted-pair (STP) cable for RJ-45 connections: 100Ω Category 3, 4
or 5 cable for 10Mbps connections, 100Ω Category 5 cable for 100Mbps connections,
or 100Ω Category 5e/above cable for 1000Mbps connections. Also be sure that the
length of any twisted-pair connection does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
Diagnosing LED Indicators
To assist in identifying problems, the switch can be easily monitored through panel
indicators, which describe common problems the user may encounter and where the
user can find possible solutions.
If the power indicator does not light up when the power cord is plugged in, you may
have a problem with power cord. Then check for loose power connections, power
losses or surges at power outlet. If you still cannot resolve the problem, contact the
local dealer for assistance.
If the LED indicators are normal and the connected cables are correct but the packets
still cannot be transmitted, please check the user system’s Ethernet devices’
configuration or status.
