PoE Solution for Long-reach Distance
PLANET WGS-E304PT is an industrial 1-Port 802.3bt PoE++ to 4-Port 802.3af/at Gigabit PoE Extender designed especially for the point to multipoint PoE application. The WGS-E304PT can obtain a maximum of 95-watt PoE power from 802.3bt PoE++ input port and supplies a maximum of 70-watt PoE power budget for 4 PoE output ports, extending both the reach of Gigabit Ethernet Data and IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet over the standard 100m (328 ft.) Cat. 5/5e/6 UTP cable to 250m where up to 4 powered devices (PDs) can be powered at the same time. The WGS-E304PT provides a simple solution for adding PoE ports without running more cabling and achieves more flexible network applications without requiring an external power adapter.
With industrial-grade IP30 metal case, the WGS-E304PT provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges which are usually found on plant floors or in curb-side traffic control cabinets. Being able to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C, the WGS-E304PT can be placed in almost any difficult environment.
DIP Switch for Operation Mode Selection
The WGS-E304PT offers “Standard”, “VLAN” or “Extend” mode. The WGS-E304PT operates as a normal Gigabit Ethernet Switch in the “Standard” operation mode.
The “VLAN” operation mode features port-based VLAN function that can help to prevent the connected clients’ multicast or broadcast storm from influencing each other.
In the “Extend” operation mode, the WGS-E304PT operates on a per-port basis at 10Mbps duplex operation but can transmit data over a distance of up to 250 meters overcoming the 100m limit on Ethernet UTP cable. With this brand-new feature, the WGS-E304PT provides an additional solution for distance extension, thus saving the cost of Ethernet cable installation.
Innovative Wall-mount Installation
The WGS-E304PT is specially designed to be installed in a narrow environment, such as wall enclosure. The compact, flat and wall-mounted design fits easily in any space-limited location. It adopts the user-friendly “Front Access” design, making the installing, cable wiring, LED monitoring and maintenance of the WGS-E304PT placed in an enclosure very convenient for technicians. The WGS-E304PT can be installed by fixed wall mounting, magnetic wall mounting or DIN rail, thereby making its usability more flexible.
Plug and Play, Easy Cabling Installation
The WGS-E304PT can be easily installed by way of Plug and Play. It is used between a power source equipment (PSE) and the PD. The WGS-E304PT injects power to the PD without affecting the data transmission performance. The WGS-E304PT offers a cost-effective and quick solution to doubling the standard range of PoE from 100 to 250 meters. The WGS-E304PT is designed in a compact box containing 5 RJ45 ports, of which 1 “PoE IN” port functions as PoE (Data and Power) input and 4 “PoE OUT” ports on the other side functions as PoE (Data and Power) output. The “PoE OUT” port is also the power injector where DC voltage is transmitted over Cat. 5/5e/6 cable, and data and power are simultaneously transferred between the PSE and PD.
