PoE Switch EB-5ES-PSE Description

Sixnet’s PoE EB-5ES-PSE PoE Switch is a 5 port industrial Ethernet switch that combines the rugged reliability of a real-time switch with four industrial Power over Ethernet (PoE) sourcing ports. Providing plug-and-play simplicity, these switches automatically sense and support all IEEE 802.3af compliant devices. In addition, advanced technology allows the switches to connect with non-PoE devices without causing damage. This performance saves time and money while keeping networks up and running even in the toughest conditions.



IEEE 802.3af Compliant PoE Ports

  • Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) operation
  •  Auto-detection of PD (powered devices)
  • Over-temperature and over-current detection
  • Over and under-voltage detection

Real-Time Network Operation

  • Intelligent message routing (no collisions)
  • Supports all standard IEEE 802.3 protocols

True Plug & Play Simplicity

  • Auto-sensing for speed and duplex
  •  Auto-mdi / mdix-crossover and auto-polarity
  • Automatic PoE power management

Trouble-Free Operation

  • Truly industrial -40 to 75°C operation
  •  Dual power inputs with surge protection
  • DIN-rail or direct panel mounting
