Gb Ethernet PoE++ Switch Enables Intelligent LED Lighting

Transition Networks’ 24-port Managed Gigabit Ethernet Power-over-Ethernet++ (PoE++) Switch (SM24TBT2DPA) is a Layer 2 managed switch with 52-Gb/s switching capacity.  This switch is viable for use in Intelligent LED lighting, digital signage and other applications with higher power needs.

 

The soft reboot feature on the SM24TBT2DPA switch allows a warm reboot of the switch without affecting the PoE output to the attached powered devices, thereby providing continuous lighting even during firmware upgrades. While it is ideal for this application, it can also be used to supply power and connectivity to other building IoT devices such as access control, digital signage, wireless access points (WAPs) and surveillance systems.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The switch provides (24) 10/100/1000 copper ports with IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ capability and (2) additional 100/1000 dual speed SFP/RJ-45 combo ports. The SM24TBT2DPA supplies 60 Watts of power on all 24 ports, or 90 Watts of power on 16 ports at the same time. The switch features dual hot-swappable 100 – 250VAC power supplies and can provide up to 1560 Watts PoE output with the optional secondary power supply installed.

 

The switch features Transition Networks' Auto Power Reset (APR) to automatically restart the attached device in case of power outages or other glitches, and DHCP per port to allow attached devices to always get the same IP address on a per port basis. The switch also features Transition Networks' Device Management System (DMS) which is used to detect and monitor the luminaire in LED lighting applications.

 

The SM24TBT2DPA is compliant with IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ (Draft), IEEE 802.3at PoE+ and IEEE 802.3af PoE standards and has an operating temperature of 0 – 40°C.

 

The SM24TBT2DPA switch is available now. For more information is available from Transition Networks.
