Industrial PoE Switches: Ensure Security, Versatility & Scalability

Industrial PoE Switches

Can you ever imagine the scenario where an IP surveillance system stops working at midnight in your industry? Any untoward incident can disrupt your business causing innumerable losses which cannot be measured monetarily. Ensuring stability in networking infrastructure for the industries is challenging. Harsh environments such as extremely low or extremely high temperatures are making it more difficult. At the same time, we can’t move forward in any operation without IP cameras, VoIP phones, wireless access points, sensors and other essential PoE powered devices. If you are looking for Power over Ethernet switches for such extreme conditions Industrial Grade PoE switches should be your first choice. Industrial PoE switches are specially designed and manufactured for industrial environments.

Hardened PoE switches or Industrial PoE switches, are PoE switch equipment used in the industrial control field. Industrial PoE switches are the best choice for certain harsh and industrial environments including extreme conditions and limited resources, such as extremely low or high temperatures.

Industrial PoE Switches are popularly used in Traffic Road Monitoring, Security Monitoring, Wind Power Photovoltaic, Coal Mine and other fields. Industrial PoE Switches support multiple PoE standards that can carry multiple PoE power and current and meet the access requirements of multiple devices in industrial scenarios.

Industrial PoE switches have high levels of protection in terms of lightning protection, waterproofing, corrosion protection, impact protection, and static electricity protection and can work in harsh electromagnetic environments. These switches generally use a fanless design, better heat dissipation, a corrugated metal shell, stronger protection, and are operable normally in the temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, and can perfectly adapt to complex temperatures and humidity.

Industrial PoE switches adopt a dual power supply redundancy design to ensure stable and reliable operation of the system. Industrial PoE switches and commercial PoE switches are basically the same in terms of functions, but industrial PoE switches are used in harsh environments, so they are more suitable for industrial use. Choose an industrial PoE switch,  to ensure safety and compatibility, etc.

The simplicity of design and performance efficiency is the biggest reason behind the popularity of Industrial Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. Through a single cable, Industrial PoE switches assure easy and dual connectivity – network and power connectivity.

Industrial PoE switches from AE Connect are one of the perfect solutions for power source ethernet devices. The robust construction of Industrial PoE switches allows them to withstand varying temperature conditions, shock and vibration. Compact designs and smart PoE management combined with critical networking make these Industrial PoE switches an ideal choice for various industrial applications.

What are the PoE Switches & Industrial PoE Switches?

Industrial PoE+ Switch

Power over Ethernet technology offers power and network connectivity for Power over Ethernet powered devices over a single network cable. PoE switches can be easily distinguished as PoE and High Power PoE, according to the electrical power they carry.

PoE switches possess different current-carrying capacities, for example, PoE switches can provide 15W power and PoE+ 30W to the Ethernet port.

Industrial PoE switches are a special type of PoE switches designed to survive ambient temperature and harsh environments. Industrial PoE Switches can operate in a wide temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and are also suitable for harsh environments or noisy environments where they may be subjected to vibrations.

PoE switch also has an in-built Power over Ethernet injector to supply up to 100W Power over Ethernet (PoE) to standards-based 802.3af, 802.3at and 802.3bt compliant devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones and wireless access points, in addition to transmitting network data. PoE switches are capable of detecting whether a device is PoE compatible or not and supply power automatically. The cost businesses are investing heavily in the installation and maintenance of multiple pieces of equipment, additional electrical wires and outlets can be saved by using a PoE Switch.

Industrial PoE Switches from AE Connect are the perfect solution for various industries such as Industrial and factory automation, Outdoor applications, Rail and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs), Marine, Oil and Gas and Mining.
