PS24 PoE Switch
The PS24 full power rack mount switch is a professional solution to power large amounts of PoE devices. With its 24x 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and a PoE budget of 410 W, it can comfortably power up to 24x 802.3af devices or 13x 802.3at devices at the same time. 4x SFP+ transceiver slots provide 10 Gbps connectivity per slot to the optical fiber network. The backplane switching capacity of 128 Gbps allows to max out the Gigabit throughput on all Ethernet & SFP+ ports without hitting any bottleneck.
How many devices can be powered?
Plasma Cloud switches support 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standards. Each port comes with the capability to detect the PoE standard required by the connected device. Therefore, a mix of 802.3af and 802.3at power consumers can be powered.
The amount of power supplied on each PoE port may vary greatly depending on power consumption of the connected device. To give an example: although the PA300 uses 802.3af PoE standard, its actual power consumption is 11.5 W or less (depending on system load and cable length). Consequently, a PS24 allows to power up to 24x PA300 despite the PoE standard defining a power consumption of 15.4 W.
When the exact power consumption is not available, refer to the PoE standard (802.3af: 15.4 W, 802.3at: 30 W) to estimate the number of devices that can be powered through this PoE switch.
The included mounting brackets offer to mount the PS24 onto a rack or wall. It also can be positioned on a desk or shelf.
