Low Cost 75W Power over Ethernet (PoE) Module for Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE)
Silvertel announces the launch of Ag6120, its lowest cost PSE module, cementing their position as the leader in embedded PoE solutions.
Aimed at developers of Ethernet equipment needing to provide from 15.4W up to 75W of power to a single channel, such as routers, Ethernet switches, security hubs, home networking and DVRs, Ag6120 provides a low cost drop-in PoE solution.
Ag6120 is a pin compatible device to the existing Ag6100 and Ag6110 PSE modules. It has been optimised and improved to provide compliance to the new IEEE802.3.bt PoE standard (up to 30W), whilst being fully compatible with previous versions of the standard (IEEE802.3af and IEEE802.3at) for single port, 2-pair operation up to 30W.
The Ag6120 just a needs a single isolated power supply from 45V to 57V, and it can be hardware configured to supply different power levels up to 75W for Ultra PoE applications, by simply connecting a resistor between lead-frame pins.
The device is also fully compatible with Silvertel’s PD product range including the new IEEE802.3bt compliant devices, Ag5800 and Ag5810. The module features over-current and short-circuit protection, and requires very few external components, making it ideal for space-constrained applications.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, and fully RoHS and WEEE compliant, the Ag6120 supplements Silver Telecom's extensive range of Power over Ethernet products for both the Powered Device (PD) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE).
Product is available now from all Silvertel distributors, and an easy to use, low cost Evaluation board – EvalAg6120 – can also be bought to help design engineers make a thorough assessment of the device.
