New Four-Port TrueNet Midspan Power-Over-Ethernet Controller

ADC announced the introduction of its new four-port TrueNet Midspan Power-over-Ethernet Controller that provides a flexible way to power IP devices over a local area network. The compact IEEE 802.3af-compliant device is designed to support small, medium and branch office applications, Wi-Fi access point installations, IP security cameras, RFID equipment and other network devices.

The ADC TrueNet Midspan Power-over-Ethernet Controller delivers DC power to up to four devices, eliminating the need to upgrade existing Ethernet switches or use unreliable local AC power to each device separately. Like ADC's higher port-count solutions, the four-port platform supports a broad variety of Power-Over-Ethernet enabled devices by detecting device presence and transmitting appropriate power according to IEEE 802.af or legacy POE in-line powering standards.

Additional features of ADC's new four-port TrueNet Midspan Power-over-Ethernet Controller include full 15.4 watt powering capabilities on all ports and redundant connections for two power supplies. The rugged extruded aluminum design protects internal electronics in harsh environments and the device can be shelf, wall, or rack mounted to support diverse powering applications.
