Designed to support the growing demand for high-voltage Power over Ethernet, Belden has released its new Hirschmann PoE/PoE+ injectors. “The growing demand for power across IIoT-ready networks necessitates reliable PoE for both legacy equipment and new infrastructure,” said Jürgen Schmid, Senior Product Manager at Belden. “With these injectors, customers can now supply power-hungry devices, like pan-tilt-zoom cameras and wireless access points, without needing to rebuild infrastructure.”
Suitable for industrial operations, such as transportation and physical security, as well as process production and automation, these injectors provide increased port density and maximum power without load sharing.
Each provides a stable, ruggedised housing specially designed for use in industrial environments and are:
Depending on an application’s needs, two different injectors are available – active (with an integrated power supply) or passive (using an existing external power source). Both are designed with ease of installation and space savings in mind.
These mid-span devices can be used to connect non-PoE switches with PoE devices – providing systems with the additional power its devices need without affecting data.
“Using these injectors, customers can add high PoE power to Ethernet-based devices in new and existing applications both easily and cost-effectively,” added Schmid.
