Altronix has released new environmentally hardened PoE Switches and powered media converters supporting the latest 802.3bt PoE devices. According to the manufacturer, these end-to-end PoE and fibre long-distance solutions allow multiple high-powered IP devices such as multi-sensor cameras, IR or White Light illuminators and wireless access points to be deployed in remote locations with or without local power.
“Altronix continues to expand our portfolio of NetWay Spectrum power and transmission solutions to accommodate the latest high-powered IP devices over longer distances – utilising fibre, copper or hybrid cabling infrastructure with or without local power,” said 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.”
The NetWaySP4BTWP is an outdoor, 4-port, hardened 802.3bt compliant PoE switch with integral power. It is equipped with two GB SFP (fibre) ports, as well as VLAN support. The NetWaySP4BTWP supports single/multi-mode fibre from NetWay Spectrum fibre media converters.
The NetWaySP4BTWPN model is designed for applications where local power is not available. Seamlessly accepts power from Hybrid Cable (fibre + copper) to support 802.3bt, 4PPoE edge devices. 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 4-port Ethernet to fibre media converter with an integral power supply/charger for use with Hybrid Cable applications where fibre + 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 (fibre) ports and four 120W power terminals (480W total) to be transmitted to multiple NetWay Spectrum PoE Hardened Switches.
Altronix’ Linq Technology is embedded in NetWay PoE Switches to control, monitor and report power/diagnostics or reset devices from virtually anywhere.
