A school campus in a city in Utah required a PoE industrial switch for a security application that provided power to the PoE security cameras inside buildings, as well as within the school grounds. Monitoring for unauthorized visitors or suspicious activity is vital to keeping the pupils safe from preventable threats. This system must be fail-safe and hardened for outdoor conditions as well as in the event of a natural disaster.
The challenge for this project application is to install hardened industrial switches that run even when there is a power failure. Should a heavy storm, downed power line or another natural disaster affect the power supply to the school, the safety of the students and school staff would be consistent, with the installed security cameras' power being unaffected.
Antaira’s low-voltage PoE industrial switches, the LNP-0500-24-T, and the
LNP-0800-60-24-T were used to complete this application.
