The NET-SW8-4POE Network Switch
provides power and data from a single point,
using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. This POE switch can be used to power up to 4 POE capable IP cameras. This switch has a total max output of 50 watts which works well because most IP cameras draw 12 watts. The eight
Fast Ethernet ports can be used for any 10/100/1000 Mbps link and four of
these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power. Advanced
auto-sensing algorithm gives power only to 802.3af end devices, so no
need to worry about damaging proprietary PoE or non-PoE equipment. In
addition, it discontinues the power when PoE devices are disconnected.
Easy and reliable, the NET-SW8-4POE automatically determines PoE
requirements, speed, duplex, and cable type.
The moderately priced NET-SW8-4POE delivers PoE to any small business
network that wants to simplify the installation of wireless access
points and IP-based surveillance cameras. These devices are optimally
installed on a ceiling or high on a wall, away from most electrical
outlets. PoE eliminates the requirement for a dedicated electrical
outlet to power these devices. This allows for flexibility in situating
devices where AC power is difficult to access and lowers installation
costs. Compact and flexible, the NET-SW8-4POE is ideal for small
business networks that need to inexpensively use PoE to deploy wireless
access points and IP-based network surveillance cameras.
Typical Surveillance POE Network Switch Example
to plug in up to eight Ethernet or Fast Ethernet devices and mix in up
to four 802.3af IP-based devices like wireless access points or
IP-based network surveillance cameras. Place these 802.3af-compliant
devices where they belong – high up on walls and ceiling for maximum
coverage – or anywhere else you need them. Power and data are carried
over standard Cat 5 cabling.
Plug and Play
standards-based NET-SW8-4POE senses and adjusts for network speed and
cabling type automatically, for easy integration into your existing
10/100/1000 Ethernet network. For PoE, the switch automatically detects
802.3af-compliant devices, and supplies power as needed. Front panel
LEDs keep you informed of switch and PoE status.
