New Altronix PoE+ Switches Feature Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Backup

Altronix’s NetWay Spectrum PoE+ Switches with Lithium Iron Phosphate battery charging feature a 10-year battery shelf life, over 5,000 charge cycles and more.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. —  Altronix introduces what it claims is the industry’s first Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery backup solution.

Now available in Altronix’s new series of NetWay Spectrum PoE+ Switches, these optimized chargers accommodate LiFePO4 batteries with significantly longer shelf life and more efficient charge cycles than conventional sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries, according to the company.

“Our new Hardened PoE Switches with optimized Lithium Iron Phosphate battery chargers are truly a game changer for the industry. It presents a new and unique value proposition for installers and end-users, ensuring continuous system operation, while greatly reducing service and maintenance costs,” says Alan Forman, president, Altronix Corp. “Altronix will be expanding this LiFePO4 backup feature to other products in our portfolio in the near future.”

Altronix’s NetWay Spectrum PoE+ Switches with LiFePO4 battery charging feature a 10-year battery shelf life, over 5,000 charge cycles and the reduced weight of the LiFePO4 batteries.

The new series of switches utilize a single LiFePO4 battery for PoE backup versus four SLA batteries, which is said to greatly reduce service and maintenance.

NetWay Spectrum features 1Gb SFP (Fiber) ports and multiple PoE+ (30W) ports or a single Hi-PoE (60W) port. Embedded Altronix LINQ power management technology allows monitoring, control and reporting of power and diagnostics from anywhere. The series also includes a wide selection of models for use in a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.
