The Ha-VIS 4000 product family of the HARTING Technology Group is extended to include Power over Ethernet. The Ethernet switches are designed for -40 to +70 °C temperature range and meet the requirements of the EN 50155 and EN 50121-3-2 standards. Thanks to the vibration-tested M12 interface, PoE users such as cameras and wireless access points can be integrated quickly and easily into the network. In addition to simplified installation – one cable for Ethernet and power – the use of unmanaged and managed switches enables two operating modes: plug and play when using the unmanaged Ha-VIS eCon 4080-BPoE1 and plug and play including application-specific configuration of the PoE functions with Ha-VIS mCon 4080-BPoE1V. Due to the managed PoE switches, individual PoE devices can be booted up or shut down via a Web interface or SNMP without having to reset the entire network. This reduces waiting times and increases network availability.
