VERSITRON Industrial Grade PoE/PoE+ Ethernet-to-Fiber Switches are equipped with 10/100/1000Base RJ45 ports with PoE+ (30W or 66W budget depending on the model) and 100/1000Base SFP fiber ports that extend existing networks over multimode or singlemode fibers. Many applications require power from the Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) device to be supplied through Ethernet cables including those where Electrical-to-Optical Ethernet Switches are being used to extend distances. Featuring rugged construction, these Industrial PoE/PoE+ devices can withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, as well as other harsh conditions.
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that offers power and network connectivity for PoE-powered devices over a single network cable. A PoE switch features an integrated PoE injector. The switches are distinguished as PoE and PoE+ according to the electrical power they provide. For example, a PoE switch can provide 15.4 Watts of power to the Ethernet port while a PoE+ device provides 30 Watts, nearly almost twice the power of a standard PoE switch.
Industrial or “Hardened” PoE switches are a special type of PoE device designed to survive ambient temperatures and harsh environments. Unlike commercial grade devices, our Industrial PoE/PoE+ switches can withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C. These products are also suited for less than ideal conditions where they may be subjected to shock and vibrations.
VERSITRON manufactures a variety of Managed Industrial PoE/PoE+ switches with port sizes that range from 4 up to a total of 18.
