    Implementation Costs for Devices such as Surveillance Cameras
    and Remote IP Phones Can Be Reduced - Even in Hostile Environments
    - Using PS14P PoE Switch

    GarrettCom™, Inc., is bringing the flexibility and cost-savings
    benefits of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to industrial applications with
    the introduction of its four-port Magnum™ PS14P PoE Power Source
    Convenient Switch. The hardened PS14P switch is the first
    industrial-spec switch to offer an IEEE 802.3af standards-compliant way
    to power and connect small devices such as IP phones, surveillance
    cameras, wireless access points and industrial sensors at the remote
    edges of an industrial network. The PS14P switch is premium-rated for
    temperature-uncontrolled environments with a temperature rating of
    -40°C to 75°C, and resists dirt, moisture, and other threats from
    hostile industrial environments.
    Originally developed to provide an inexpensive power source for VoIP
    phones being deployed in enterprises, PoE (IEEE 802.3af), enables Power
    Sourcing Equipment (PSE) to provide power over standard twisted-pair
    Ethernet cabling to a compliant Powered Device (PD). PDs use PoE
    standard protocols to - and utilize - power transmitted over the
    data link. In effect, PoE provides a standards-based way to provide
    power to a wide variety of PDs in areas where it is physically or
    financially prohibitive to offer normal power.

    Many Enterprise Ethernet applications are utilizing a device called a
    "Midspan Power Source" to "inject" power into an existing
    network. This box sits between an existing Ethernet switch and the
    target PDs. By integrating Ethernet switching, PoE power sourcing, and
    industrial-hardened components and packaging into a single unit,
    GarrettCom's Magnum PS14P PoE Power Source Convenient Switch saves
    costs and space, and increases reliability in a wide spectrum of
    industrial applications. As more new industrial PoE devices arrive in
    the market, the Magnum PS14P Switch will also enable new applications,
    extending Ethernet LANs further into high-availability industrial

    GarrettCom is at the forefront of bringing this much-needed technology
    to the industrial environment," said Norman Pearl, VP of Engineering,
    Dataradio Inc., Montreal, Quebec. We plan on deploying the PS14P
    switches with our spread-spectrum, license-free HiPR900 radio system
    that is used in SCADA and telemetry industrial applications.
    GarrettCom's PoE implementation gives us plug-and-play solutions with
    minimal complexity, while the small package makes it ideal for remote
    substations, and other locations with limited available real estate.

    The Magnum PS14P Switch has four PoE-enabled RJ-45 ports that can drive
    802.3af-compliant PDs as well as deliver 10/100 Mb data transmission
    over the same twisted-pair cable. The PS14P switches have an
    auto-sensing algorithm that cuts off power when 802.3af-compliant
    devices are not attached.Proprietary PoE and non-PoE equipment are not
    recognized, which protects them from possible damage. The PS14P switch
    supports the Power-over-Ethernet PSE standard for over-current
    protection, under-current detection, and fault protection.

    Built to Take the Heat

    The Magnum PS14P Switch, about the size of a deck of playing cards, is
    only 3.5 in x 3.0 in. x 1.0 in. ( (8.9 cm x 7.6 cm x 2.5 cm), and
    weighs 5.2 oz. (150 g).Its four PoE RJ-45 ports can be supplemented by
    connecting the switch to a Magnum CS14P Converter Switch™ device or a
    Magnum ES42P Edge Switch to obtain fiber connectivity or additional
    non-PoE hardened Ethernet ports.

    The PS14P models are built with premium-grade extended temperature
    components to be suitable for use in sheltered outdoor locations. It
    uses GarrettCom's patent-pending thermal techniques and is equipped
    with a robust metal case for durability. Mounting options include
    stand-alone panel-mounting, DIN-rail, or rack-mount tray. No internal
    air flow is required for cooling, so the PS14P resists dust, dirt,
    moisture, smoke and insects.The Magnum PS14P PoE Power Source
    Convenient Switch and all other Magnum products are designed and
    manufactured in the USA and backed by a three-year warranty.
