California, U.S.A., October 2018 – Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions launches a new series of industrial PoE++ switches supporting IEEE 802.3bt especially designed to open the door to a vast range of power increase applications.
One of the key markets for IEEE 802.3bt can be attributed to “Smart Building” wherein a significant number of devices can be powered such as sensors which are usually monitored and controlled from a single management system, either locally or virtually anywhere via the internet. The PoE standard IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at are sufficient for powering some VoIP systems, CCTV cameras, and RFID along with other types of access control. However, devices such as video conferencing, Wi-Fi routers, pan-tilt-zoom or heated cameras, and door interlock systems draw more current. The Ethernet Direct Industrial 802.3bt switches brings maximum power to accommodate these devices.
The CMG-428EPZ2BT (Managed Ethernet) and CMG-428GEPZ2BT (Managed Gigabit) are Industrial PoE++ switches
with 4-port Fast Ethernet or Gigabit with 2-port SFP supporting IEEE 802.3bt. Ethernet Direct switches are designed with advanced PoE management functions such as weekly PoE power scheduling, device auto-checking and auto-reset. The enhanced software features support a variety of Ethernet functions including STP/RSTP/MSTP/ITU-T G.8032 ERPS and multiple Direct-Ring for redundant cabling, layer 2 Ethernet IGMP, VLAN, Quality of Service, ACL, Security, IPv6, bandwidth control, port mirroring, cable diagnostic and Green Ethernet. As the demand for higher power to support additional devices connected to the Ethernet network such as PTZ security cameras, kiosks, POS terminals, thin client, 802.11ac access points, small cells and connected LED lighting, all of which can benefit from PoE.
Available IEEE 802.3bt models:
- CMG-428PZ2BT: Industrial 4 x 10/100T(X) + 2 x 100/1000Base SFP Managed Gigabit PoE Switch w/4 PoE++ injectors, 60W per port, max. output 240W, -10 to 60℃
- CMG-428EPZ2BT: Industrial 4 x 10/100T(X) + 2 x 100/1000Base SFP Managed Gigabit PoE Switch w/4 PoE++ injectors, 60W per port, max. output 240W, -40 to 75℃
