Phihong's 30W Midspan Powers Wireless, WiMAX Access Points

FREMONT, Calif. (October 9, 2006) - The 30W one-port midspan from Phihong USA, the global leader in low-cost power supplies, is now being implemented into high power applications that implement IEEE's 802.11N standard. Designated the POE30U Series, the midspan is designed to power wireless and WiMAX access points that require up to 24 watts of power. IEEE 802.11N, the new broadband wireless standard, has driven up access point power requirements beyond current IEEE802.3af standards.

"802.11N access points with A/B/G support and new WiMAX access points are typically using up to 24 watts of power," said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. "By using our high power midspan, there is no need for installing new local AC power outlets and special wiring, eliminating the cost and time delays of calling an electrician. "

In addition to wireless and WiMAX access points, applications for the POE30U midspans include IP telephones with streaming video and high quality Pan Tilt Zoom.

The 30W 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 voltage for the one-port midspan is 56V with accurate overload detection to 0.55A. The outputs are equipped with short circuit and overload protection, and the output can be shorted permanently without damage. AC input voltage range is 90VAC to 264VAC, with voltage rating from 100VAC to 240VAC and AC input frequency from 47Hz to 63Hz.

Phihong's POE30U midspan has been tested for compatibility and broadband data handling capability by UNH IOL. Safety approvals for the 30W one-port device include cUL/UL and CE. Phihong is an expert at international safety agency approvals and can offer almost any international safety or EMC compliance standard.

Typical pricing for Phihong's 30W one-port midspan is $29.95 each in single piece quantities. Parts are available immediately.

Phihong is one of the leading suppliers of power solutions to networking OEMs, including power supplies, adapters and Power-over-Ethernet products. With global sales for 2006 expected to exceed $450 million, Phihong has engineering and manufacturing facilities in North and South America, Taiwan and mainland China.
