Eliminate the need for an additional power cable by using a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch from Antaira Technologies. Deploy devices such as IP cameras and wireless access points in places where a power connection is not available or feasible. Or take advantage of PoE switches to simply remove the clutter of power cords. An additional advantage of PoE switches is the ability to connect the switch to battery backup so in case of a power outage, your switch and any PoE devices connected to the switch remain powered on. The PoE standard specifies up to 15.4 watts of DC power per switch port. The newer PoE+ or PoE Plus standard supplies up to 25.5 watts per port and allows long cable runs to 330 feet (100 meters).
Power Over Ethernet Switch Features
Antaira’s PoE switches are available in 5 to 26 ports capacities, managed or unmanaged, Fast or Gigabit Ethernet speeds and standard or extended operating temperatures.
Built to handle tough environments, they include redundant 48 - 55V DC power input, extend operating temperature from -40°C to 75°C, rugged DIN-rail case and protection from voltage spikes and current surges.
The LNP-0602 switch is a versatile and smart 6-port industrial unmanaged Ethernet switch. It supports IEEE-802.3at compliant (Power-over-Ethernet Plus) on ports 1 to 4. It comes with 2 100FX SC or ST fiber connections and support for 2km multi-mode or 30 km single-mode. Each port offers MDI/MDI-X auto sensing to provide flexible cabling options. In addition, it includes a built-in relay warning function that alerts network engineers of a power outage or link failure.
Industrial networks demand tough and reliable switches. A managed PoE switch like the LMP-1002C-SFP not only gives you PoE capability, but also the ability to configure advanced features such as network filtering, IGMP, VLAN, QoS, SNMP, port lock, RMON, ModbusTCP, 802.1X, HTTPS, SSH and more. Of course, it also meets all the industrial toughness you expect from Antaira switches including IEC shock and vibration standards IEC60068-2-27, IEC60068-2-32 and IEC60068-2-6.
Industrial environments often require creative solutions to solve IT issues. If a suitable power source is an issue, a PoE injector eliminates the need to run a separate power cable to PoE enabled devices such as cameras, wireless bridges, fire alarms and digital signs. The LNP-201AG-T or PA-48-48-US injector can solve that issue by providing power to your device over the Ethernet cable.
PoE switches from Antaira Technologies have the features and functionality you’re looking for in harsh environments and provide the flexibility you need to power network end points. Contact a knowledgeable Westward Sales networking specialist today to learn more.
