Patch cable makes the difference

The development of Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a success story. No wonder, because the possibility of handling data services and power supply via a single cable offers numerous advantages. By dispensing with a separate power supply line, valuable resources can be saved, which has a positive effect on costs. This is particularly true for the further development of IoT (Internet of Things) and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), where the number of network-capable devices is constantly increasing.

The latest standard 802.3bt (4PPoE) enables a further increase in power up to 90W. This means that PoE is also suitable for energy-intensive end devices such as notebooks, TVs or computers. However, there are a few pitfalls to be considered when it comes to cabling. The choice of the patch cable can make the difference.

The Advantages of Power over Ethernet (PoE)

  • Reduction of connection cables for powered devices
  • Reduction of costs for electrical connections
  • Flexible exhibition of the Powered Devices
  • Worldwide standard for a power supply with RJ45
  • Reliability: the power source equipment is protected by UPS, the Powered Devices are also fused, without the need for separate circuits
  • Green IT - energy saver: only as much power as necessary

Suitable end devices for Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Thanks to the successive increase in maximum supply power (PoE 15.4W, PoE+ 30W 4PPoE 90W), it is now possible to operate terminal devices with higher energy requirements without the need for an additional power supply.
