Home Vendor submitted release Hirschmann® PoE/PoE Plus modules for 16 Fast Ethernet ports per switch

Belden has announced the availability of fan-free Hirschmann® PoE/PoE Plus Modules for its MACH100 Workgroup Series Switches.

The Module's eight Fast Ethernet ports (10/100 BASE-TX) provide either 15.4 watt (PoE) or 30 watt (PoE Plus) operation, with PoE Plus functionality available to four of the unit's eight ports.

Two PoE/PoE Plus Modules can be used with each Hirschmann MACH100 Switch for a total availability of 16 ports per switch - all of which can be operated simultaneously to provide up to 120 watt total power. 

For additional flexibility, the Module's PoE Plus ports can power devices with higher power requirements such as IP pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras, Voice over IP (VoIP) videophones, or multiband WLAN access points.

The introduction of the PoE/PoE Plus Modules demonstrates Belden's leadership position in industrial network technology. Until now, there has never been a fan-free PoE unit that occupies only one unit of space while offering users a high concentration of PoE or PoE Plus ports.

The Module's user-friendliness is assured via LEDs at each port which signal PoE or PoE Plus operation. 48V DC (PoE) or 52 V DC (PoE Plus) power is secured through use of an external power supply that is connected via twisted pairs to the unit's three-pin terminal block. These plug-and-play, hot-swappable modules are shielded to protect against electrostatic discharges, magnetic fields, and interference. Network management software and a web interface are available to facilitate easy configuration and diagnostics.

Hirschmann MACH100 Switches

Belden's Hirschmann-branded MACH100 modular Fast Ethernet switches support Profinet and EtherNet/IP and can be used to network workgroups via copper or fibre optic cables while connecting them to the backbone via two Gigabit combo ports. The switches operate in the temperature range 0o to +50oC, offer extensive management and redundancy procedures, and a variety of functions for configuration and diagnostics. They also possess a fanless cooling system and a redundant power supply.

More information on Belden's Hirschmann-branded PoE/PoE Plus Modules is available in New Product Bulletin NP317.
