Understanding PoE is now crucial for electricians

PoE testers can help electricians to cost-effectively conduct quick, accurate PoE validation, eliminating guesswork while getting the job done faster. In just a few short years the use of PoE has migrated from IT devices into building systems like lighting, HVAC and access control. However, the growth of PoE presents issues for electricians, who may have never had cause to work on anything other than traditional electrical cable infrastructure.

The Internet Of Things Is Key To Preserving World History

The Internet of Things is the future, but it’s also key to the past. Yes, its main function may be to make environments and objects more reactive to our needs through the use of various connected sensors, but increasingly these sensors are being used to monitor historic buildings and structures. And thanks to such monitoring, we’re getting better at preserving the world’s heritage, using future technology to keep us connected to our collective past.

White Paper: The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise

Power over Ethernet has become the new power grid in buildings. With new standards that allow up to 99W to be delivered, PoE has grown up and is ready to power connected devices throughout the office building, school, and hospital. Panduit’s latest ebook, The Role of PoE in the Modern Connected Enterprise, explores infrastructure considerations and emerging solutions for extending the distance of PoE delivery.

Transition Networks Starts Work on Smart City IoT Project for New York City DoT

Transition Networks will work with New York City’s transportation agency to connect, power and manage traffic data via its hardened TAA-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) switches. This application brings intelligent transportation infrastructure citywide and reinforces the relevance and timeliness of Transition Networks’ strategy of developing smart city Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Omnitron launches 60W and 90W fiber-to-PoE media converters per 802.3bt standard

Omnitron has launched its IEEE802.3bt OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S fiber to 60 and 90 Watts PoE Power Sourcing (PSE) Media Converters product line. Utilizing the new 802.3bt standard, Omnitron’s GHPoEBT/S fiber to PoE media converter and power injector meet network demands where fiber data reach, high PoE power, and interoperability is required and expected. The OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S is an unmanaged multi-port media-converter/injector with different fiber, and 10M/100M/1G RJ45 copper port, models available. Units are available with one or two 60 and 90 Watts power ports; models also support the 802.3af (15 Watts) and 802.3at (30 Watts) PD devices. Units with two fiber ports can be daisy chained or deployed in a redundant fiber topology for critical applications.
