Power Over Ethernet Switches
AutomationDirect adds Stride PoE+ switches to lineup.
AutomationDirect has added Stride PoE+ switches to its unmanaged Ethernet switches lineup. Both 10/100 Mbps and GbE versions have one standard RJ45 Ethernet port and four PoE+ RJ45 ports (30W on each port). Using Powered Device (PD) Detection, the PoE switch port will detect the presence of a PoE enabled device before sending power. If a non-PoE device is detected, power will not be sourced on that port but Ethernet communications will be permitted. Power input requirements are 54-58 VDC for PoE+ (30 watts per port) and 48-58 VDC for PoE (15.4 watts per port). The switches provide broadcast/network storm protection and have redundant power inputs. With IP30 metal cases, the switches have a -40 to +75°C (-40 to +167°F) operating temperature range and are approved for HazLoc environments. The switches are DIN rail mounted and an optional panel mounting bracket is available.
