With Power over Ethernet, it is possible to transmit data as well as power via an eight-wire network cable. There are plenty of environments where PoE, PoE+ or PoE++ technologies are used to power connected devices: public facilities and cities, highways and tunnels, airports and railways, campuses and many others. Typical applications are wireless LAN access points, IP cameras and Voice over IP phones.

” In campus and harsh environments, the number of possible applications grows continuously. Integrating a low voltage framework through Power Over Ethernet, PoE is one of the most effective ways of activating such a growing ecosystem of end devices. Nexans is now providing the latest standard in the region, PoE++, Type 4, IEEE 802.3bt, with an output power of 90W, through its iGigaSwitch 10xx family,” explained Arafat Yousef, Managing Director – Middle East & Africa, Nexans Data Network Solutions.

Nexans industrial switches are compact, robust and built according to relevant industrial standards. Military-grade components ensure high reliability and a long lifespan in even the harshest environments and an operating temperature range from -40 … +85°C.

To power different network devices, iGigaSwitch 10xx family has up to 8x PoE+ or 6x PoE++ ports (different options are available) in accordance with the latest IEEE 802.3at and 802.3bt Type 4 standards. Additionally, the preinstalled I/O module of iGigaSwitch 10xx family has two potential-free function inputs and two programmable alarm contacts for fast, simple and low-cost integration of additional non-Ethernet devices.
