Phihong launches new PoE switch

FREMONT, Calif. (October 29, 2008) -- Phihong, a global leader in Power-over-Ethernet solutions, has developed a Power-over-Ethernet switch that extends PoE and Ethernet up to 200 meters and can power four IP cameras from a single Cat5 cable. Designated the POE60S-4AF, the 10/100basteT switch extends the capability of Ethernet and PoE from a current limit 100-meter reach to double the distance, and with the power to run four security cameras from a single Cat5 cable.

"Power-over-Ethernet saves users money primarily because it allows them to easily run power to locations that would otherwise require extensive wiring and high labor costs," said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. "This new PoE switch further eases implementation and increases the power delivered by extending the Ethernet further distances and by powering multiple devices from a single cable."

The PoE switch can operate under temperatures from 0° to 55°C. It works with either an Ultra PoE midspan (providing IEEE802.3af outputs) or an AC adapter, and is UNH-tested.
