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. PoE switches pass data and power over a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for a separate power cord. 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. The PoE standard, IEEE 802.3af, specifies up to 15.4 watts of DC power per switch port. The newer PoE+ or PoE Plus standard, IEEE 802.3at, 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 speed, and standard or extended operating temperatures. 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 two 100FX SC or ST fiber connections and support for 2 km multi-mode or 30 km single-mode. Each port offers MDI/MDI-X auto-sensing to provide flexible cabling options. Plus, 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 gives you not only 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.
Hardened for Industrial Environments
Built to handle outdoor and factory locations, these networking switches include a redundant 48 – 55 VDC power input, wide operating temperature, rugged DIN-rail enclosure, and protection from voltage spikes and current surges. PoE Ethernet switches with the extended operating temperature option (-T suffix) offer the same features as a standard PoE switch but with the added benefit of withstanding extreme heat and cold. With a very broad temperature range, they operate in conditions as low as -40°C and as high as 75°C.
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.
