Cost-effective Centralized Power Distribution
PLANET FSD-804P is equipped with eight 10/100BASE-TX ports, four of which are 802.3at PoE+ copper interfaces. For cost saving and flexible use of PoE power provision, half of the 10/100Mbps TP ports of the FSD-804P provide PoE power injector function which is able to drive 4 IEEE 802.3at/af compliant powered devices. For SOHO or department network, the Switch also provides a simple, cost-effective and highly-reliable network connection for data as well as power. Furthermore, it is the ideal device for bridging Ethernet and Fast Ethernet workgroups or networks.
Ethernet Data Transmit Distance Extension
The built-in solid DIP switch provides “Standard” and “Extend” operation modes. The FSD-804P operates as a normal IEEE 802.at/af PoE Switch in the “Standard” operation mode. In the “Extend” operation mode, the FSD-804P operates on a per-port basis at 10Mbps duplex operation but can support 30-watt PoE power output over a distance of up to 200 meters overcoming the 100m limit on Ethernet UTP cable. With this brand-new feature, the FSD-804P provides an additional solution for 802.3at/af PoE distance extension, thus saving the cost of Ethernet cable installation.
Environment-friendly, Fanless Design for Silent Operation
The FSD-804P comes with a desktop-sized, compact metal housing, making the placement of the unit convenient. It features a ventilated construction in which a cooling fan is not necessary, thereby making its operation noiseless. Moreover, the FSD-804P is able to operate reliably and stably in any environment without affecting its performance. The deployment of PoE PDs with constant power feeding can be easily and quickly done.
Easy Cable Connection
With data switching and power over Ethernet integrated into one unit, the FSD-804P reduces cabling requirements and eliminates the need for dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place. A wire that carries both data and power can lower the installation costs, simplify the installation effort and eliminate the need for electricians or extension cords. With 4 PoE interfaces, the FSD-804P is ideal for small businesses and workgroups making the deployment of the PoE facility including wireless access points, IP-based surveillance camera and IP phones in any places easier, more efficient and more cost-effective.
