Extend LED Lighting with Power Over Ethernet PoE Extender
Enable-IT PoE Extenders will help keep the LED Industry vibrant and running strong for decades to come.
Demand for LED Power Over Ethernet (PoE powered) Lighting is expected to drop sharply in the future. Because LED PoE powered bulbs last on average for 20 years, lighting manufacturers have “backed themselves into a corner,” according to IHS Research. To increase demand, the industry needs to innovate on lighting controls and functionality, drop prices, and decrease the life cycle of bulbs. This is being driven from offshore manufactures now and as incandescent lighting is phased out, the need to extend LED lighting will become more adopted.
The latest update to PoE is the IEEE 802.3at standard, known as PoE+. The major difference between 802.3af (PoE) and 802.3at (PoE+) is that PoE+ PSEs can provide almost twice as much power over a single Ethernet cable – PoE Ethernet. Because PoE allows you to use one cable for both power and data transmission, PoE saves you money on purchasing and running cable for networking equipment and VoIP phones. PoE makes installing or expanding a network much simpler and cheaper in buildings where it is too expensive or inconvenient to install new power lines.
What kind of wiring is used with PoE?
Network cables, such as Cat 5e and Cat 6, comprise eight wires arranged as four twisted pairs. In 10 and 100BASE-T Ethernet, two of these pairs are used for sending information, and these are known as the data pairs. The other two pairs are unused and are referred to as the spare pairs (Gigabit Ethernet uses all four pairs).
Enable-IT to the rescue. Our PoE Extender and Power Over Ethernet technology will allow for more intelligent LED lighting control devices to be deployed in industries where the traditional PoE distance barrier is too costly to overcome. PoE Extenders will drive Ethernet data and Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Power up to 6,000ft away from the LAN and power sources. Thus, increasing LED lighting distances and more efficient deployment of PoE powered LED lighting solutions.
Enable-IT has several Power Over Ethernet PoE Extender to choose from depending on your LED power distance and throughput requirements.
