The demanding and often even harsh environments in industry and high stress of machines and lines require Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions and connected devices that bring more to the table than consumer and office products. Power over Ethernet for industry integrates seamlessly into your existing automation environment and provides robustness and compliance with industrial standards and regulations.
Industrial communication is one of the cornerstones of a Digital Enterprise and therefore the basis for digitalization. This high significance is reflected in Power over Ethernet for industry. Headnet is also pioneering Power over Ethernet with up to 60 W of power per port in industrial applications. Power over Ethernet plays out its advantages wherever large data transfers and flexible distribution of power are required. Typical applications include providing wired and wireless network infrastructure as well as monitoring, identification and localization.
There’s no electrician required for installation and maintenance thanks to data and power transmission via one cable. Because of compliance with international standards like IEEE 803.at and IEEE 803.bt, there’s also no special knowledge required.
In narrow environments like intralogistics, reduced cabling saves space and allows flexible mounting, which is further supported through Headnet’comprehensive portfolio of industrial network components and PoE devices.
The design of Headnet PoE components like switches and end devices is industry compliant. Reliable operation is ensured for many applications indoors and outdoors, even in harsh environments with temperature extremes from -40 °C to +85 °C and for demanding tasks.
PoE allows to connect almost any number of devices for efficient power distribution, with managed and unmanaged switches (even without additional power supply), up to 60 W per port and 600 W per switch, and data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s.
