PoE+ standard in switches provides more power
02 September 2014
The latest range of Ethernet switches from Harting employs Power over Ethernet (PoE) to provide more power to connected system devices.
PoE, and its higher-power variant PoE+, are standards for the parallel transfer of power and data over twisted-pair cable. The HARTING switches use the PoE+ standard (based on IEEE 802.3at) to offer power levels of up to 34.2W, significantly increasing the variety of potential applications.
Up to four Ethernet Switch ports can be simultaneously deployed for the supply of power with HARTING's Ha-VIS eCon models. The portfolio includes switches with a 54V supply voltage and variants with integrated voltage converters.
The higher power levels enable users to benefit from greater flexibility in the connection of end devices and the extension of the network by saving on additional components such as power supplies - in addition to time, money and space savings with the cabling.
Developed and optimised for applications in harsh industrial environments, the unmanaged Ha-VIS eCon Ethernet Switches enable the cost-effective extension of existing network infrastructures as well as the construction of new industrial networks.
