March 19, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Mar. 19, 2018 – Manufacturers Automation is announcing the launch of Moxa EDS-P506E-4PoE series of PoE switches which can provide up to 60 W per PoE port for converged data and power transmission.
The company says the power output was designed for IP cameras that use power-demanding functions such as PTZ, illumination, heaters, and fans in harsh environments. The EDS-P506E-4PoE switches offer device-level cybersecurity, remote control, and the capability to monitor powered devices to meet the operational requirements for various industrial applications. The EDS-P506E-4PoE has four Ethernet PoE+ ports that can supply up to 60 W per port with a total power budget of 180 W. The smart PD detection feature and plug-and-play integration allows it to supply power to any PoE PD, says the company, adding that the Smart PoE provides automatic PD detection of power class, status, and errors for smart diagnostics, and enables failure check, which can reboot cameras if they freeze or experience lag.
