PCI Express 8+1 Embedded Ethernet Switch with Optional Power Over Ethernet (PoE)
Part # AEI-e810C

In Stock
Ships 24-48 hrs.



AEI Intelligent Technologies' AEI-e810C is a flexible and high performance embedded Physical Layer switch providing eight (8) exterior Fast Ethernet ports, plus an independent 1000Base-T internal Gigabit uplink to the host system's PCIe bus through the card edge connector.

Installation is a snap. The device drivers are plug and play in most operating systems; and support a wide variety of architectures.

The eight Fast Ethernet ports are controlled by the switch IC, which has 5.6 Gbps of bandwidth to achieve wire-speed performance. Moreover, it operates independent of the host system. Subsequently, if the host system locks the Gigabit uplink port to the host will no longer function, however, the eight Fast Ethernet ports will continue to function normally and pass data among themselves so long as power/GND resides on the motherboard.

The AEI-e810C is an ideal networking solution for multiport industrial applications!

IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at
Power Over Ethernet (PoE) Switch - Optional

By using Power over Ethernet, installers need only run a single CAT5 or CAT5E Ethernet cable that carries both power and data to each remote device, therefore decreasing installation costs.

A wall power cable (sold separately) plugs into the PCI Bracket, and enables the controller to act as a PSE switch (Power Source Equipment). The 8 external Fast Ethernet ports are designed independently using IEEE standards for PoE (802.3af/at). Each port automatically senses if a PoE capable PD (Power Device) is attached. If the PD provides appropriate handshaking, onboard intelligence enables 48VDC power on the individual port.

The adapter eliminates the need to run high voltage power 110-220VAC to remote PoE devices, and eliminates the need for standalone Midspan and Endspan PoE switches/injectors.

Applications: PoE devices such as VoIP Phones, IP Cameras, wireless access points, etc.
