Plasma Cloud PS8-L Switch

PS8-L PoE Switch

The PS8-L desktop switch is a compact & cost-effective solution for small offices or homes needing to power only few PoE devices. With its 8x 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and a PoE budget of 55 W, it can comfortably power up to 3x 802.3af devices or 1x 802.3at devices at the same time. The backplane switching capacity of 16 Gbps allows to max out the Gigabit throughput on all Ethernet ports without hitting any bottleneck.

How many devices can be powered ?

 

Plasma Cloud switches support 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standards. Each port comes with the capability to detect the PoE standard required by the connected device. Therefore, a mix of 802.3af and 802.3at power consumers can be powered.

The amount of power supplied on each PoE port may vary greatly depending on power consumption of the connected device. To give an example: although the PA300 uses 802.3af PoE standard, its actual power consumption is 11.5 W or less (depending on system loa
