Phihong Releases its Smallest Series of Single Port IEEE802.3AF Power Over Ethernet Midspans

Measuring a compact 7.2 cubic inches, the new 15W PoE midspans deliver gigabit data rates & full over-voltage, over-current, & short circuit protection in IP telephone, wireless access point, & security camera applications

Fremont, CA (December 10, 2015) — Phihong USA, a global leader in the development of Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology solutions, has released a new series of volumetrically compact 15W single port PoE midspans designed to power IEEE802.3af compliant applications, including: IP telephones, wireless network access points, and security cameras. Currently available in two versions - the POE15M-1AF, which features an IEC320 C6 connector, and the POE15W-1AF, which features an IEC320 C8 connector - POE15 Series midspans measure a slight 7.2 cubic inches, deliver 15.4W output power at 56VDC, and integrate into networks at gigabit speeds.

"Measuring half the size of typical 15W PoE midspans, the POE15 Series enables smaller overall package sizes for end products like VoIP phones and security cameras, which tracks with consumer demands for ever-smaller devices," said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA.

Rated for AC input voltages spanning 100-240VAC, POE15 Series midspans feature full over-voltage, over-current, and short circuit protections per the IEEE802.3af specification, and an LED indicator that communicates when the device detects a valid load, is active with no load, or is experiencing overload conditions. Compliant with CE, cUL/UL 60950-2, IEC/EN 60950-2, and LPS safety standards, the new 15W single port midspans can be safely operated in temperatures ranging from -20 degrees Celsius to +50 degrees Celsius, and can tolerate humidity levels spanning 5-90%. Both devices in the series measure 106mm (4.17") x 40mm (1.57") x 27mm (1.10"), weigh 100g (3.5oz), and are covered by a one-year warranty. Pricing for the series starts at under $20 for single-unit quantities.
