Pakedge Debuts Gigabit PoE Injector

pakedge gigabit 0212

pakedge-gigabit-0212Pakedge Device & Software just launched a new PoE injector dubbed the PI-05, specifically designed for custom home networking systems. The PI-05 is a Gigabit IEEE 802.3at-compliant PoE injector that eliminates the need to connect a device such as an IP camera, wireless access point (WAP) or VoIP telephone to a separate AC outlet. The PI-05 delivers high-powered output, with maximum power of 34 watts and up to 25 watts at the powered device, enabling it to power high-demand devices such as HD cameras. The PI-05 delivers Ethernet signals at Gigabit speeds and features Endspan Intelligent Detection, meaning it will not turn on the power until it detects a valid PoE signature from the device attached downstream on the Ethernet cable.

In addition, voltage is inserted at 48 volts into the Ethernet cable, eliminating the possibility of voltage drops due to cable length. The PI-05 will power any device that is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3at PoE standard, not just other Pakedge components.

The PI-05 is compact, measuring approximately 4.6″ x 2.95″ x 1.6″ and features a heat-dissipating metal housing with integral wall-mount flanges. It supports 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet speeds and fully passes all VLAN tagging. The PI-05 has Ethernet surge, overload and short circuit protection, plus is FCC and CE-approved and RoHS-compliant.
