The affordably priced ProSAFE FS116P provides power and data using Power over Ethernet (PoE) over a single Cat-5 cable. This is ideal for small business networks that want to simplify the installation of their IP-based PoE devices. This can bring big cost saving when used for devices that are installed away from electrical outlets for example IP door entry and IP cameras, as the PoE eliminates the requirement for a dedicated electrical source. The ProSAFE FS116P has 16 Fast Ethernet ports which can be used for any 10/100 Mbps connection, 8 of these ports can supply industry-standard IEEE 802.3af power.
This switch automatically detects 802.3af-compliant devices therefore will only provide power to these devices. In addition power will stop when the PoE devices are disconnected. The ProSAFE FS116P senses and adjusts network speed and cabling type automatically, for easy integration into your existing 10/100 Ethernet network. The front panel LEDs will keep you informed of switch and PoE status.
