Industrial switches with PoE capability

The Harting Ha-VIS 4000 series of industrial Ethernet switches has been extended to include Power over Ethernet capability (PoE), allowing devices such as cameras and wireless access points to be integrated quickly and easily into an industrial network.

In addition to offering simplified installation through the use of one cable for Ethernet and power, the availability of both unmanaged and managed switches enables users to access 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 the managed Ha-VIS mCon 4080-BPoE1V. Due to the managed switches, individual PoE devices can be booted up or shut down via an eeb interface or SNMP without having to reset the entire network. According to Harting. this reduces waiting times and increases network availability. The Ethernet switches incorporate a vibration-tested M12 interface and are designed for an extended temperature range from -40 to 70°C. Both meet the requirements of the EN 50155 and EN 50121-3-2 standards.
