New Moxa PoE+ Switches Provide Power in Harsh Outdoor Environments

The EDS-P506E-4PoE’s smart PoE software can automatically reboot the cameras in the event of a failure, freeze or lag.

BREA, Calif. — Moxa, a manufacturer of industrial networking, computing and automation solutions, launches the EDS-P506E-4PoE Series of PoE switches.

Each of the new switch’s four ports deliver up to 60W to power IP cameras employing energy-draining functions such as p/t/z, illumination, heaters, wipers and fans, according to the company.

The switches also feature built-in smart PoE powered device (PD) detection, plug-and-play integration, device-level cybersecurity, remote control and the capability to monitor powered devices.

Moxa says the EDS-P506E-4PoE’s feature set qualifies it to meet the operational requirements of intelligent transportation systems, traffic monitoring and public utilities, among others.

SFP fiber ports can transmit data up to 75 miles from the device to the control center with high EMI immunity, while its two Gigabit combo ports support high-bandwidth communications, according to the company.

“When deploying multiple IP surveillance cameras on industrial networks, there are several advantages to deploying PoE solutions as opposed to using separate power and Ethernet lines,” says Jackey Hsueh, product manager of Moxa’s industrial Ethernet infrastructure division. “Owners need to carefully consider specific features when selecting an PoE switch in order to meet their requirements, such as a high-power PoE design, available bandwidth, fault recovery features and last but not least, cybersecurity protection.”
