RuggedNet Industrial GXPoE+/Si and GXHPoE/Si are unmanaged gigabit PoE Extenders that enable the delivery of Ethernet data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) beyond the standard 100 meter limit of twisted pair copper cabling.
RuggedNet Industrial PoE Extenders provide cost-effective distance extension and connectivity to remote PoE devices where external power is not available or hard to provision, or when replacing copper with fiber becomes cost prohibitive.
RuggedNet Industrial PoE Extenders are 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet extenders that function as both Powered Devices (PD) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), and require no external AC power. They feature one PoE/PD port and one or two PoE/PSE ports, and can be powered by an IEEE 802.3at or High-Power PoE 60W power source, such as a RuggedNet GHPoE/Si or GHPoE/Mi High-Power 60W PSE switch.
Utilizing data regeneration and voltage level boosting capabilities, RuggedNet Industrial PoE Extenders can be daisy-chained to break through the Ethernet copper distance barrier and deliver 10/100/1000 data and power to multiple PoE powered devices.
Due to cable resistance, voltage drop across the cabling could lower the voltage below the minimum standard requirement of the attached PD. RuggedNet PoE Extenders have smart voltage-boosting technology to maintain the required standard compliant PoE voltage levels between hops.
The PoE Extenders automatically negotiate and deliver the power level required by a Powered Device (PD) partner. When a non-PoE device, such as a laptop, is connected to the PoE Extenders for data only applications, no power is applied.
RuggedNet Industrial PoE Extenders are plug-and-play devices that support auto-negotiation of data rates and duplex modes for simple in-line installation to instantly extend industrial network distances. The PoE Extenders are fully operational once a PSE source is applied to the PoE/PD port, displaying power and operational status without a PD attached. This facilitates the installation and troubleshooting by ensuring each link is operational.
The RuggedNet Industrial PoE Extenders can be wall mounted with an optional wall mount bracket or DIN
