PLANET POE Managed PoE Injector Hub series, a cost-effective and quick PoE solution, is designed to perfectly upgrade an existing network infrastructure to IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus network system without replacing the existing Ethernet Switch.
A Cost-effective Managed PoE+ Injector Hub
With PoE in great demand, the IEEE 802.3af standard is being replaced by IEEE 802.3at (also known as PoE Plus) Type 1. PLANET new POE-1200G is specifically designed to support 802.3at PoE+. The POE-1200G is a high-density, rack-mountable managed PoE+ injector hub featuring PLANET intelligent PoE functions through web user interface for remote management. As its name implies, the unit can inject a total PoE budget of 220 watts into PDs. Its 12 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports can each deliver up to 36 watts of power over Cat.5/5e/6 Ethernet UTP cables which allow data and power to transmit simultaneously to remote 802.3at/af powered devices (PDs).
The POE-1200G enables centralization of the power supply and optimizes the installation and power management of remote network devices, and provides a quick, safe and cost-effective Power over Ethernet network solution for small businesses and enterprises.
Quick and Easy PoE Network Deployment
The POE-1200G is installed between a regular Ethernet Switch and the PDs. There are totally 24 RJ45 STP ports on the front panel of the POE-1200G, of which the 12 ports are on the lower stack functioned as “Data input” while the other 12 ports are on the upper stack functioned as “PoE (Data and Power) output“. Both power and data are transferred simultaneously over the UTP cables to PDs without affecting the existing network performance and functions.
With data and Power over Ethernet from one unit, the POE-1200G can reduce power cable deployment and eliminate the need for dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place.
IEEE 802.3at PoE+ Standard Compliance
The PoE in-line power adopting the IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet Plus standard makes the POE-1200G able to deliver per port up to 36 watts of power to each remote PoE compliant powered device. It possesses double amount of power capability than the conventional 802.3af PoE and is an ideal solution to satisfy the growing demand for higher power consuming network PDs, such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom), speed dome network cameras, color touch-screen or video and voice over IP (VoIP) telephones, multi-channel 802.11ac wireless LAN access points, and other network devices.
Friendly Web Management Interface
To efficiently manage the powered devices, the POE-1200G provides simple Web management interface in which administrators can control the system and PoE functions for powered devices. It can automatically detect the power status of each port and show messages on its Web management interface. These features also provide users with a cost-effective way to manage the device via Internet whenever they are at work or at home.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Device Management
As it is the managed PoE Injector Hub for VoIP, wireless and surveillance networks, the POE-1200G features the following special PoE management functions:
■ PoE schedule
■ PD alive check
■ Scheduled power recycling
■ PoE usage monitoring
■ Over temperature protection
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
PLANET’s Managed PoE products adopt not only Power over Ethernet technology, but also automated PD monitoring and real-time PoE status. The POE-1200G can be configured to monitor connected PD’s status in real time via ping action through the uplinked Ethernet switch. Once the PD stops working and responding, the POE-1200G will recycle the PoE port power and bring the PD back to work. It also will greatly enhance the network reliability in that the PoE port will reset the PD power, thus reducing administrator’s management burden.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
Under the trend of energy saving worldwide and contributing to environmental protection on the Earth, the POE-1200G can effectively control the power supply besides its capability of giving high watts power. The built-in “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and money.
Advanced Power Management
To facilitate power management, the POE-1200G comes with powerful PoE management features such as over temperature protection, usage threshold alert and auto power allocation to prevent power budget overloading. The PoE power budget can be allocated by priorities or classification and sent alert event logs when power usage reaches the defined threshold.
PoE Usage Monitoring
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the POE-1200G enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time.
High Power Budget for PoE Extension
With 36-watt PoE output capability, the POE-1200G can extend much longer distance by using PLANET PoE Extender for powering up the PoE PD which can be installed over more than 100 meters away. By daisy-chaining multiple PLANET PoE Extenders, it offers the great flexibility of doubling, tripling or quadrupling the distance of PoE network.
Smart Fan Design for Silent Operation
The POE-1200G features a low noise design and an effective ventilation system. It supports the smart fan technology that automatically controls the speed of the built-in fan to reduce noise and maintain the temperature of the PoE injector hub for optimal power output capability. The POE-1200G is able to operate reliably, stably and quietly in any environment without affecting its performance.
