POE-171A-95 1-Port Multi-Gigabit 802.3bt PoE++ Injector (95 Watts)

POE-171A-95 1-Port Multi-Gigabit 802.3bt PoE++ Injector (95 Watts)

The PlanetPOE-171A-95 is a Single-Port, 802.3bt Power over Ethernet Injector with a maximum of up to 95 watts of power output over UTP Ethernet cables. It is equipped with two 10M/100M/1G/2.5G/5GBASE-T RJ45 copper interfaces to handle extremely large amounts of data transmission.  

The POE-171A-95 is designed specifically to meet the demand for growing higher power required network equipment such as:

- PoE Lighting

- PTZ speed dome IP Cameras

- AIO (All-in-One) touch PC

- Remote digital signage displays

- Other network devices that need higher power to function

The POE-171A-95 delivers the Ethernet digital data with DC power over the twisted-pair cables as a 95-watt Power over Ethernet Injector, and the connected ultra Power over Ethernet splitter, the POE-173S, will separate the digital data and the power into three optional outputs (12V/19V/24V DC) with distance up to 100 meters.

Intelligent LED Indicator for PoE Mode and Real-time PoE Usage

When the POE-171A-95 is switched to the legacy mode it provides power to those PD devices which do not fully follow the IEEE 802.3af/at/bt standard. The Legacy LED will turn on when the Legacy mode is enabled. If the Legacy mode can’t power on the PD, the Force mode will be enabled automatically to provide PD with a maximum of 95 watts.

The POE-171A-95 helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently via its advanced LED indication. “PoE Power Usage” displayed on the front panel of the POE-171A-95 has three LED indicators of different power usages. Via the power usage LED, the POE-171A-60 enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real-time.

95 watts of Power over 4-pair UTP

Instead of delivering power over 2-pair twisted UTP – be it  end-span (Pins 1, 2, 3 and 6) or mid-span (Pins 4, 5, 7 and 8), the POE-171A-95 provides the capability to source up to 95 watts of power by using all the four pairs of standard Cat. 5e/Cat. 6 Ethernet cabling.

All-in-One and Compact Size Design

It is easy to install the POE-171A-95 by way of Plug and Play and comes with simple troubleshooting, making it easy to you for business and home users. The POE-171A-95 comes in compact housing, and provides one 52~56V DC input power jacket, one power LED, PoE-in-use LED and legacy LED. Two RJ45 ports -- Ethernet port and Ethernet + DC port – are on the side panel. Simply plug in the Ethernet cables and DC power cord, and the POE-171A-95 is ready to provide high-speed network communication and the 802.3bt PoE injector functions simultaneously with no need for software configuration.

Quick and Easy Cabling Installation for PoE Network Deployment

Backward compatible with both 802.3af/at PoE standards, the POE-171A-95 allows users to flexibly deploy standard and high powered devices to transfer data and power simultaneously through one Ethernet cable for up to 100 meters. The POE-171A-95 frees the security IP camera and wireless AP deployment from restrictions of power outlet locations and the additional AC wiring. It thus reduces cables and eliminates the need for electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place, and most of all, it reduces installation time.

Installation of 802.3bt PoE Injector 

Due to the backward capability of IEEE 802.3af/at PoE standard, the POE-171A-95 can directly connect with any IEEE 802.3af/at end-nodes, such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom) speed dome IP cameras, color touch-screen Voice over IP (VoIP) telephones, and multi-channel wireless LAN access points.

Installation of 802.3bt PoE Injector and Splitter 

For a place which is hard to find the power inlet, the POE-171A-95 and POE-173S operate as a pair to provide the easiest way to power your Ethernet devices which need high power input, such as PTZ network cameras, PTZ speed dome cameras, color touch-screen Voice over IP (VoIP) telephones, and multi-channel wireless LAN access points installed on the top of the building or used in enterprise office or home.

Extended Installation of IEEE 802.3bt Injector and PoE Network

Is 100-meter cable long enough for a wide range of IP surveillance deployments? The answer is certainly not. To achieve the benefits of IP surveillance and also the long-distance IP camera distribution, the POE-171A-95 and PLANET PoE Extender, the IPOE-E172, can be a quick and cost-effective option. In the simplest application, the PoE Extender enables a PoE IP camera to be installed up to 200 meters away from the POE-171A-95. The POE-171A-95 delivers PoE power over the first 100 meters to the PoE Extender over UTP cables, and then the PoE Extender forwards the Ethernet data and remaining PoE power to the remote PoE IP cameras.
