Phihong's midspan, splitter devices

Phihong USA has introduced a 60W midspan and a 52W PoE gigabit high-power splitter suited for implementing P-o-E to power multi-radio access point arrays in business and educational environments. Both are designed around the current specifications of the proposed IEEE802.3 at standards to support high-power wireless access points. Designated the POE60U-560G, the midspan is designed to power wireless access point arrays and WiMAX access points that require up to 52W of power. The POE60D splitter is a gigabit-compatible device designed to be mounted right next to a powered device, performing connect identification function as well as separating the power and data.

Both are designed around the current specifications of the proposed IEEE802.3 at standards and are suited for implementing P-o-E to power multi-radio access point arrays in business and educational environments.

"Other solutions require hard-wiring power to the ceiling where the access points are mounted, which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars in labour costs," said Keith Hopwood, VP of marketing, Phihong USA. "This new midspan and splitter can power those applications without a significant investment in time, labour and equipment."

Aside from wireless and WiMAX access points, applications for the POE60U midspans include computer workstations and electronic displays.

The 60W midspan features diagnostic LEDs and the same safety and protection systems as with the IEEE 802.3af standard, including detection, disconnect and overload control. The device is also gigabit-compatible.

DC output no-load voltage for the one-port midspan is 56V with accurate overload detection. The outputs are equipped with short circuit and overload protection. Moreover, the output can be shorted permanently without damage. The voltage range of the AC is 90-264Vac, and AC input frequency from 47Hz to 63Hz.

Phihong's POE60U midspan has been tested for compatibility and broadband data handling capability by UNH Safety approvals for the 60W one-port device include cUL/UL and CE. Typical pricing for the 60W one-port midspan is Rs.1,585.12 ($37.50) each in OEM quantities. Parts are available immediately for OEM customers.

The POE60D splitter, which features an LED indicator that signals whether the device is working properly, is also gigabit-compatible and makes it suitable for almost any application.

Available in a non-vented case with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T and 1000BASE-T data rates and a UNH IOL test report, the P-o-E splitter features a non-isolated output voltage range of 51-57Vdc. The device also has full OTP-, OCP- and OVP-protection. OEM pricing for the POE60D splitter is Rs.843.28 ($19.95).
