Ethernet Direct Releases CUE-500-PD Industrial PoE Switch with 24VDC Power Input for Special Applications

Taipei, Taiwan, 7 August, 2009 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, announces a new model of Industrial PoE switch designed with 24/48VDC power input for special applications.

CUE-500-PD is an Industrial 5-port unmanaged Power over Ethernet switch which supports four PoE ports classified as power sourcing equipment (PSE). The switch is unique in such a way that it offers 24VDC and 48VDC redundant power input design to guarantee double power protection mechanism, 6000VDC Ethernet ESD protection, EFT 3000VDC for power line, power polarity reverse protection and overload current resettable Fuse.

The modern day technology integrates IP-based surveillance systems. IP surveillance solutions facilitate real time video recording, identification, transmission and sharing to the network. CUE-500-PD is equipped with PoE ports that are capable of supplying up to 15.4 watts of power per port. In addition, each port can automatically detect when PoE compliant devices are attached, before supplying power, allowing the use of traditional (non-PoE) Ethernet devices if needed.

In a plant floor with 24VDC on the control panel, the need for CUE-500-PD is required for easy installation. In addition, 24VDC can save power infrastructure cost. Furthermore, CUE-500-PD 24VDC PoE Switch is specifically designed for transportation surveillance and can be adopted in a bus surveillance system to increase the safety of the passengers. Another typical application of CUE-500-PD is in the telecommunication industry due to the most control rooms inherit 24VDC power input. Installations of Industrial PoE switches from Ethernet Direct have been widely recognized in IP Surveillance networks and gaining momentum in industrial applications where high performance, professional technical support and costs is concerned.
