Managed PoE Switches

Overview of managed PoE switches

The 4000 series Managed PoE Switches enable you to connect up to 16 network devices. Both data and energy can be supplied to up to eight end devices via the Ethernet cable. Comprehensive configuration options and special PoE functions make the switches a powerful and flexible solution for your network.

Up to 60 W of power per port

The 4000 series PoE switches are suitable for the use with PoE-driven high power devices such as PoE++ cameras

The 4000 series managed PoE switches supply end devices with up to 60 W per port. They are also suitable for use in applications with end devices that comply with the pre-standard ​IEEE 802.3bt (​PoE​++), such as high power cameras. 

Additional functions include Gigabit SFP uplink ports with jumbo frame functionality for ensuring data integrity. This safeguards data transmission in all applications.

PoE configuration options

Configuring the switch via laptop  

You can configure various PoE functions with the 4000 series PoE switches

The 4000 series ​Managed PoE Switches​ enable you to make user-defined PoE settings. The PoE function can be activated or deactivated for each port separately for example. In addition, a PoE prioritization feature is available and you can set maximum power budgets. This ensures that in the event of any problems with the power supply of the switch, your most important devices continue to be supplied with PoE.

PoE watchdog function

With the PoE watchdog function, you can monitor your PoE end devices to ensure that they are functioning correctly. Here, the switch sends a ping to the powered device (PD) at regular intervals. After a configurable number of unanswered pings, a power cycle is performed. The PD is restarted. With this approach, end devices that stop functioning due to a malfunction during operation can be returned to the correct state, without the intervention of a service technician. As an alternative, the PoE Switch can also shut the PD down completely.

PoE scheduler function

With the PoE scheduler, you can plan the days and times during which the switch makes Power over Ethernet available to your end devices. This is useful when end devices are only needed at certain times of the day. You thus reduce the consumption of electricity and the data load on your network during the remaining periods.
