KBC Networks of Lake Forest, Calif., has expanded its industrial Ethernet switch range with a series of power over Ethernet (PoE) switches.
Designed for a wide range of industrial, non-conditioned and outdoor applications, the switches are either IEEE 802.3af or IEEE 802.3at compliant, which is suitable for most pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) cameras, according to the company.
The available switch types include a range of fixed RJ45, SFP and combo ports (10/100 and Gigabit) which are MDI/MDIX compliant for automatic configuration. For greater system reliability and straightforward maintenance, the switches feature dual redundant power inputs as well as power failure alarm outputs, according to the company. The hardened casings are IP30 rated and the units have operating temperature ranges of between -40° F and +165° F.
