Adding Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows the Smart Wireless Gateway to easily integrate with compatible infrastructure without the need for extra wiring
AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 13, 2015) – Emerson Process Management has added Power over Ethernet (PoE) to the Smart Wireless Gateway 1420, making it possible to power the gateway and compatible devices using a standard Ethernet cable. PoE allows easy, economical installation of wireless Gateways without requiring extra power wiring infrastructure.
The PoE Gateway provides infrastructure flexibility in places where there is limited access to power. By using an Ethernet cable connection, a new PoE Gateway can be easily installed and powered by an existing wireless access point. Alternately, PoE allows the Gateway to power any Ethernet-enabled instrument. Taking advantage of existing power infrastructure results in a significant cost savings compared to running new wiring.
