July 2013 - PoE is an efficient and convenient solution for remote applications where available space is limited and/or no power source is readily available. Our EIPE-2 Splitter provides an innovative and cost effective solution to a variety of Ethernet devices that are not PoE compliant. Splitters are traditionally used with older network products that do not directly accept PoE but can still use PoE technology. If the end device is 10/100 Mbps Ethernet-based but requires 24 VDC to operate, the splitter will accept the combined 48 VDC and data from a power sourcing equipment (PSE) and then generate 24 VDC to provide the end device with separate data and power up to 10 watts.
The EIPE-2 Splitter uses the PoE's voltage 48 VDC to internally generate the 24 VDC power for the non-PoE device. Each mid-span model has two RJ-45 connectors. The upper connector attaches to the upstream PSE device. The lower one attaches to the end device. Transmit and receive signals pass between the two connectors as if the mid-span device were not present. The splitter does not interfere with communication between the upstream device and the PD end device.
The mid-span EIPE-2 model supports the 802.3af protocol and has a rugged metal enclosure and metal DIN-rail clip for control panel mounting. It is UL, c-UL 508 Listed for Industrial Control Equipment and is RoHS/WEEE compliant.
