Versa Technology, Inc. has released the compact HPOE-460, a Gigabit high power PoE injector hub. The HPOE-460 is a 4-Port injector hub that allows network administrators to power devices in difficult locations. The unit complies with both the IEEE 802.3af and High Power IEEE 802.3at PoE standards. The unit features individual ports that combine a maximum of 30 watts of power output and data over a CAT 5/5e/6 Ethernet cable. The High PoE 4 Port Injector Hub HPOE-460 was made to meet the requirements of high power network devices, such as wireless LAN access points with multiple channels, PTZ cameras, and a variety of network devices.
"The HPOE-460 is a truly convenient and compact unit that essentially combines four individual Power Over Ethernet injectors into a single unit," said Shaw Tien, vice president of Versa Technology. "The HPOE-460 is a sensible unit for network administrators to save space. It is preferred compared to having four individual injectors in a single location."
Each individual device has the ability to receive a maximum of 30 watts of input power with the IEEE 802.3at PoE pre-standard. This standard provides double the power compared to the 802.3af standard. IEEE 802.3at PoE provides even more efficiency for high power through the RJ-45 Port interface. Since the HPOE-460 is compliant with the IEEE 802.3at standard, it offers an even greater power capability than the 802.3af PoE standard.
