Industry-leading Integration of PoE Technology and Renewable Power System
The BSP-360, Renewable Energy Industrial 802.3at PoE Managed Ethernet Switch, is designed for deploying a surveillance or wireless network and remotely monitoring and managing the IP-based devices. Based on its green technology, the BSP-360 can be charged by the inexhaustible and natural source of energy, such as solar, wind or hydroelectric power. This helps conserve energy and economically power remote IP cameras and wireless APs, especially in applications such as dams, forests, deserts, national parks, nature/animal protection areas and highways.
MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) Charge Controller
The MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker) is an electronic DC to DC converter that optimizes the match between the PV solar panels and the battery bank or utility grid. They convert a higher voltage DC output from solar panels (and a few wind generators) to the lower voltage needed to charge the battery effectively.
Zero-Carbon and Stable Power Supply
The nickel-cadmium or lead-acid battery gets recharged by way of the BSP-360 where solar power is sourced. Thus, the BSP-360 will keep powering PD devices without the need of any cabling. Its zero-carbon feature is made possible as the energy the unit gets is renewable. Most importantly, the operation of outdoor wireless IP-based surveillance can be continued into the night as the battery is charged during the day.
Smart Battery Management
The BSP-360 features the following special power management functions:
Current battery usage status by percentage
Low voltage cut-off protection
Current Battery Usage Status
The administrator can remotely access the BSP-360 to know the power status of the battery and renewable energy, and the estimated time of power consumption.
Low Voltage Cut-Off Protection
If the remaining energy is too low to power the network, the system will automatically power off the device to make sure the system works normally, and an alert is then sent to the administrator at the same time.
Smart PoE PD Management
As it is the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the BSP-360 features the following special PoE management functions:
PD alive check
PoE usage monitoring
Scheduled power recycling
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The BSP-360 can be configured to monitor connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the BSP-360 will resume the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PDs power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The BSP-360 allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection, the BSP-360 can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The PoE schedule function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and budget. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
PoE Usage Monitoring and Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the BSP-360 enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time. Thus, it greatly enhances the management efficiency of the facilities. Moreover, the BSP-360 helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently via its advanced LED indication. Called PoE Power Usage, the front panel of the BSP-360 has three LED indicators of different power usages.
User-friendly and Secure Management
For efficient management, the BSP-360 is equipped with web and SNMP management interfaces. With the built-in web-based management interface, the BSP-360 offers an easy-to-use, platform-independent management and configuration facility. By supporting the standard SNMP, the switch can be managed via any standard management software.
