Data and power supply from Siemens can be provided for up to 26 devices using Power over Ethernet (PoE).
Siemens has expanding its Scalance X portfolio with the new Power over Ethernet (PoE, power and data via one cable) variants of the Scalance industrial Ethernet switches XC-200PoE, XR-100PoE WG, and XR-300PoE WG.
With this solution, up to 26 end devices can be supplied with data and power via one data cable. All new PoE switches supports the latest IEEE 802.3bt standard and provide up to 30 watts of power per port. Using the 10 Gbit/s copper ports of the Scalance XR-300PoE WG products even up to 60 watts per port are possible.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a method to provide network end devices with power and data via one cable. The power and data transmission takes place via the applied Ethernet cables, which connect the individual network components.
Since this enables a quick and wiring-free installation of various components such as wireless LAN access points as well as IP cameras and IP phones, PoE is becoming an essential part of digitalization for many modern companies.
Industry uses the technology known from the office and home and adopts it into industrial components such as industrial Ethernet switches, Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) gateways and identification components.
The new PoE switches expand the Scalance X family’s product portfolio and provide the right solution for every area of the industrial network.
