Power over Ethernet injectors addresses increased power demands of IoT
Hirschmann Power over Ethernet (PoE)/PoE+ injectors are designed to support the growing demand for high-voltage PoE. They are available from Belden.
The growing demand for power across IIoT-ready networks requires reliable PoE for both legacy equipment and new infrastructure. Belden claims that these injectors can be used by customers to supply power-hungry devices, like pan-tilt-zoom cameras and wireless access points, without needing to rebuild the infrastructure.
The injectors are suitable for transportation and physical security, as well as process production and automation. The injectors provide increased port density and maximum power without load sharing, adds Belden. Each provides a stable, ruggedised housing specially designed for use in industrial environments. The injectors are easy to use, says Belden. They are compatible with automatic device detection and standard DIN rail mounting for an “effortless” installation, says Belden.
All variants support up to 240W across up to eight ports without load sharing. Each port is able to provide the maximum per-port output power of 30W.
The power supply offers an efficiency of 95 per cent or above to ensure minimal energy waste.
Two injector types are available, depending on an application’s needs. There is an active version, with an integrated power supply, and a passive model, using an existing external power source.
These mid-span devices can be used to connect non-PoE switches with PoE devices – providing systems with the additional power its devices need without affecting data.
