Industrial-strength Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) modules make it possible to use Ethernet to transfer data and electricity. The modules help power end devices such as wireless LAN access points, IP telephones, webcams, Ethernet hubs and other appliances in locations where supplying power separately would be inconvenient.
The FL IF 2PSE-F module offers two PoE ports for the Modular Managed Switch (MMS). It is an “endspan” device with power sourcing equipment (PSE) integrated in the switch/hub. Depending on the specific requirements, users can freely combine 8-24 ports in twisted pair, PoE and various glass fiber media. End devices with PoE can be monitored by a higher-level management system that is also capable of turning the devices on and off remotely.
The standalone FL PSE 2TX module converts two standard Ethernet ports to Power-over-Ethernet ports. The module generates the 48V power supply required by IEEE802.3af Power-over-Ethernet from a 24 Vdc connection. Its plug-and-play technology requires no configuration.
The devices are UL-approved and conform with IEEE802.3af. The use of a central uninterruptible power supply (UPS) further increases the failsafe functioning of end devices.
