What is the difference in AKE-P or AKB-P readers?

Please note that we carry two variations of Ethernet PoE readers, the AKE-P and AKB-P. The biggest difference is the AKB-P reader has the built in EIP protocol to connect to Rockwell PLCs. The AKE-P is simply an Ethernet PoE enabled reader. So if you need to connect to a Rockwell PLC, please ensure that the Ethernet reader ends in AKB-P.
