Introducing Extended Power over Ethernet

IoT Optimized for Light

X-PoEⓇ elevates traditional Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities, delivering up to 30% more power for lighting systems without the need for extra hardware such as PoE Nodes and LED drivers. This cost-effective solution speeds up installation and seamlessly integrates with advanced IoT lighting and BMS controls. By simplifying DC lighting setups, X-PoE supports the growth and diversification of the PoE market while ensuring compatibility with IEEE standards. It offers advantages including a reduced carbon footprint, zero standby power consumption, and enhanced efficiency.

What is PoE?

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that allows both data and electrical power to be transmitted over a single Ethernet cable, simplifying network installations and powering devices.

There are several benefits to PoE including less wiring, material savings and safer handling to mention a few. State of the art PoE systems allow transmitting up to 90W of power in a single data cable. Read more about the benefits of PoE at www.poeconsortium.com

What is X-PoE?

X-PoE, or Extended Power over Ethernet, is a groundbreaking technology extension to the standard PoE. The primary benefit is when integrating PoE with Lighting and related peripherals, as X-PoE obviates the need for an LED driver and enables seamless operation at higher power levels of up to 120W.

Beyond its predecessor, X-PoE boasts an array of exceptional advantages, including faster installation, reduced material use, higher efficiency, zero standby power, and much more. X-PoE switches are fully backwards compatible with standard PoE as defined by the IEEE.
