Industrial Power over Ethernet (PoE) media converters are a popular type of networking device commonly used in a wide variety of industries. They offer several effective benefits, such as increasing network potential, reducing electromagnetic interference, simplifying the fiber-to-desktop process, and providing cost-effective flexibility. To learn more about industrial PoE media converters and how they can benefit your network, continue reading.
What is an industrial PoE media converter?
Industrial PoE media converters combine power and data into one cable, which helps simplify a network by eliminating the need for additional power cables. They can be used to convert fiber cables to Ethernet and provide power to PoE-compliant devices.
In other words, they help bridge the gap between commercial network types for enhanced network connectivity. By doing so, they provide a solution to copper-to-fiber connectivity while also issuing Power over Ethernet to PoE-compliant devices. Additionally, they can help extend network connections beyond cabling standards as they support transmission distances of power and data up to 100M on a copper cable.
Uses for industrial PoE media converters
PoE media converters are most commonly used for PoE-compliant devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones, and wireless access points. For example, if a fiber cable must be run a long distance to a location for a camera or wireless access point, the PoE media converter can take the fiber cable and convert it to Ethernet while also delivering power to the device.
When PoE media converters are compliant with IEEE 802.3 and 802.3u Fast Ethernet standards like Antaira Technologies’s line of robust PoE media converters, they are able also to perform remarkably well in high-density or industrial applications.
