Silvertel : PoE module delivers up to 30 W

Oct 27, 2009
Silvertel has announced the launch of the IEEE 802.3at compliant Ag5100 series of Power over Ethernet modules.

Aimed at developers of Ethernet equipment requiring up to 30W of power, such as PTZ Cameras, WiMAX access points, Electronic Point of Sale terminals, Door Entry Systems and Thin Client terminals, Ag5100 provides a low cost drop-in IEEE802.3at solution.

Providing the 2-event classification required by IEEE802.3at, the Ag5100 module also includes a complete high efficiency DC-DC converter capable of providing a nominal 12V or 24V output, which can be programmed to give any voltage from 11V to 29V, which is especially useful for applications requiring the inclusion of battery chargers.

Additional features include 1500V isolation (input to output), overload, short-circuit and thermal protection.

Requiring just a few low cost external components, Silvertel has provided a product which is low cost, easy to use, and occupies a minimum of PCB real estate. Ag5100 evaluation boards are also available, as well as a range of application notes.

Designed and manufactured in the UK, and fully RoHS and WEEE compliant, the Ag5100 supplements Silver Telecom’s extensive range of Power over Ethernet products for both the Powered Device (PD) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE).
