Ethernet Direct Launches 4 New Models of CUE Industrial PoE Switches

Taipei, Taiwan, 4 October, 2007 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, launches 4 new models of Industrial PoE switches to offer a comprehensive range of 802.3af based Power over Ethernet products with optimized and scalable power delivery for more efficient power management.

As PoE technology is becoming useful for powering IP telephones, wireless LAN access points, Network cameras, Ethernet hubs, embedded computers, sensors, card readers and other appliances where it would be inconvenient, the CUE series of Industrial PoE switches from Ethernet Direct provides stable power supply and deliver 10/100Mb data transmission over the same twisted pair cable. This is an ideal solution for many industrial applications.

CUE series comes in 4 models namely CUE-111, CUE-113, CUE-411 and CUE-413. All models automatically sense and support both PoE and non-PoE Ethernet devices. The Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), and are fully compatible with Powered Devices (PD) that complies with the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard. Ethernet Direct's CUE series are designed to tolerate harsh industrial environment and operates with external 48VDC power source to deliver up to 15.4 watts power in maximum and 10/100Mb data transmission over Ethernet cables.

The CUE Industrial PoE switches support various power protection like PoE overload current protection, port to port isolation, PoE over voltage and under-voltage protection, 4000 VDC Ethernet ESD protection and PoE short circuit protection.
