Antaira has patented a hot-swapping protection technology feature, for Power over Ethernet which is referred to as Safe PoE Disconnect, and is found on many of Antaira’s bt PoE switches. The Safe PoE Disconnect feature ensures the protection of a high-power PoE network when operating high-power sourcing equipment. This allows an engineer to safely disable the power being sent across the Ethernet cable before disconnecting the cable at either end. This technology feature can be activated on a PoE switch by switching off the PoE port before pulling out the cable, deactivating the PoE power.
This patented feature was designed around the IEEE 802.3bt standard that allows up to 90 and sometimes 100 watts of power to be transmitted across an Ethernet cable. High-power being sent across the cable means the energy has a greater chance of arcing across a gap when a cable under full power is being disconnected. Arcing can cause conductive surfaces on both the modular plug and the socket to erode. This erosion removes critical plating that is required for error-free transmission of data while also damaging cables and sockets which can result in network failures. Antaira’s Safe PoE Disconnect technology allows you to safely keep your network up and running.
