Outstanding 802.3bt PoE++ Solution for Hardened Environment
Featuring Plug and Play designed to be installed in heavy industrial demanding environments, the IGS-824UPT is a PLANET Industrial-grade, DIN-rail type Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Switch with four 10/100/1000BASE-T ports featuring IEEE 802.3bt Power over Ethernet Plus Plus (PoE++) injector function to deliver up to 95 watts of power output and high data transmission speed to PDs (powered devices) installed in a remote area where sufficient and reliable power input is required. Its two 100/1000BASE-X SFP fiber optic uplink ports provide long distance, high speed and stable data transmission to a remote core network.
The IGS-824UPT is designed with redundant power system and is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any hardened environment without affecting its performance. It comes with a total power budget of up to 240 watts for different kinds of PoE applications and operating temperature ranging from -40 to 75°C in a rugged IP30 metal housing.
802.3bt PoE++ – 90~95-watt Power over 4-pair UTP Solution
As the IGS-824UPT adopts the IEEE 802.bt PoE++ standard and PoH technology, it is capable to source up to 95 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat5e/6 Ethernet cabling to deliver power and full-speed data to each remote PoE compliant powered device (PD). It possesses triple amount of power capability than the conventional 802.3at PoE+ and is an ideal solution to satisfy the growing demand for higher power consuming network PDs, such as:
- PoE PTZ speed dome cameras
- Thin clients
- AIO (all-in-one) touch PCs, point of sale (POS) and information kiosks
- Remote digital signage displays
- PoE lightings
Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
The IGS-824UPT helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently via its advanced LED indicator. On the front panel of the Industrial Gigabit PoE++ Switch, there are three different power usage LED indicators indicating 80W, 160W and 240W.
Fiber Optic Link Capability for Flexible Distance Extension
The additional two mini-GBIC slots built in the IGS-824UPT support SFP auto-detection and dual speed as it features 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-SX/LX SFP (small form-factor pluggable) fiber-optic modules, meaning the administrator now can flexibly choose the suitable SFP transceiver according to the transmission distance or the transmission speed required to extend the network efficiently. The distance can be extended from 550 meters to 2 kilometers (multi-mode fiber) and 10/20/40/60/80/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber). They are well suited for applications to uplink to backbone switch and monitoring center in long distance.
Dual Power Input for High Availability Network System
The IGS-824UPT features a strong dual power input system with 48~54V DC to enhance system reliability and uptime. In the example below, when power supply 1 fails to work, the hardware failover function will be activated automatically to keep powering the IGS-824UPT via power supply 2 alternatively without any loss of operation.
Environmentally Hardened Design
With the IP30 metal industrial case, the IGS-824UPT provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets without air conditioning. It features a ventilated construction in which a cooling fan is not necessary, thereby making its operation noiseless. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the IGS-824UPT can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
The IGS-824UPT provides contact discharge of ±6KV DC and air discharge of ±8KV DC for Ethernet ESD protection. It also supports ±6KV surge immunity to improve product stability and protects users’ networks from devastating ESD attacks, making sure the flow of operation does not fluctuate.
