PoE+ Switches: Lots of Power on the Information Superhighway
Within automation networks – especially complex ones – any cable that can be eliminated reduces wiring effort to saves space, labor and material costs. And this is precisely what WAGO's new Power-over-Ethernet switches can do for any size of network.
Power supply and data transfer via ETHERNET cable: Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) eliminates the separate power connection for devices connected to the switches via the IP network. The advantages are obvious: Wiring is significantly faster and saves more space. Furthermore, separate power supply units are not necessary, further reducing cost. To suit a wide variety of application needs, WAGO developed three variants, with each featuring ring redundancy to ensure reliable communication – even if a line breaks.
Smart Networks for Process Control and Automation with:
Custom PoE+ switches with 30 W per PoE+ port
Robust device design for demanding locations
ECO variants for series machine engineering with 24 V power supply (eliminates the need for an additional 48 V power supply unit)
Scaled functions – including redundant power supply and alarm functions for high-availability use in process control
