Altronix has released environmentally-hardened PoE switches and powered media converters supporting 802.3bt.
These end-to-end PoE and fiber long-distance solutions allow multiple high-powered IP devices such as multisensor cameras, IR, or white light illuminators and wireless access points to be deployed in remote locations with or without local power, the company says.
“Altronix continues to expand our portfolio of NetWay Spectrum power and transmission solutions to accommodate the latest high-powered IP devices over longer distances — utilizing fiber, copper or hybrid cabling infrastructure with or without local power,” says Ronnie Pennington, director of sales for the Americas at Altronix. “This provides consultants, designers and technicians with better ways to set the edge further by extending the range of their security, lighting and communication systems.”
More information from the company:
The NetWaySP4BTWP is an outdoor, four-port, hardened 802.3bt-compliant PPoE switch with integral power. It is equipped with two GB SFP (fiber) ports, as well as VLAN support. The NetWaySP4BTWP supports single/multi-mode fiber from NetWay Spectrum fiber media converters.
The NetWaySP4BTWPN model is designed for applications where local power is not available. Seamlessly accepts power from hybrid cable (fiber + copper) to support 802.3bt, 4PPoE edge devices, according to the company. The use of hybrid cable supports the delivery of power and data from NetWay Spectrum head-end media converters/injectors such as the new NetWaySP4PX.
The NetWaySP4PX is a four-port Ethernet-to-fiber media converter with an integral power supply/charger for use with hybrid cable applications where fiber + power will be delivered long distances to support edge devices when local power is not available. This unit is designed for rackmount installation at the head-end and offers four 1Gb SFP (fiber) ports and four 120W power terminals (480W total) to be transmitted to multiple NetWay Spectrum PoE hardened switches.
Altronix products are manufactured in the U.S.A, TAA and NDAA compliant, and backed by a lifetime warranty.
