PoE splitter powers industrial Ethernet devices

N-Tron has enhanced its iPOE family of industrial hardened Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices by adding a PoE splitter. This product enables products that would otherwise require a dedicated power drop to be deployed with only a Cat5 cable. A PoE sourcing device such as N-Tron’s 100-POE-4 Midspan or 105TX-POE endspan provides PoE via a Cat5 cable, and at the other end of the Cat5 the 100-P...

PoE splitter powers industrial Ethernet devices
N-Tron has enhanced its iPOE family of industrial hardened Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices by adding a PoE splitter. This product enables products that would otherwise require a dedicated power drop to be deployed with only a Cat5 cable. A PoE sourcing device such as N-Tron’s 100-POE-4 Midspan or 105TX-POE endspan provides PoE via a Cat5 cable, and at the other end of the Cat5 the 100-POE-SPL splits the power and Ethernet in order to power a legacy non-PoE device. This solution is ideal in situations where it would be difficult or expensive to run power, or for a temporary installation. With a 2 million hour MTBF design, operating temperature range of -40capable of providing 15.4 watts of power, the maximum allowable under the IEEE 802.3af specification. www.n-tron.com N-Tron
