What should safety for PoE systems be important to me?
When shopping for a PoE switch, it is crucial to prioritize safety. Whether you are connecting devices such as cameras, printers, or access points, which can range in value from $100 to several thousand dollars, it is essential to avoid plugging them into a PoE switch that lacks safety features. Connecting expensive devices to an unsafe PoE switch can potentially lead to damage and unfortunate consequences. It is important to note that such damage is typically not covered by warranties. For instance, if you were to connect a $10,000 multifunction printer to an inadequate PoE switch resulting in a fire, the printer company would not replace it for you. Instead, you would have to purchase another $10,000 printer. Therefore, considering safety precautions during the purchasing process is of utmost importance.
What are the safety features of BV PoE systems?
BV Security PoE systems offer two crucial safety features: power detection and surge protection.
With power detection, the switch ensures that only the necessary power is delivered to connected devices. If a device does not require PoE or needs less power than the port provides, no electricity will flow through that line. For example, if a non-PoE device is plugged in, no power will be sent. Similarly, if a device requires only 15 watts of power but is connected to a port providing 90 watts, the switch will deliver only the required 15 watts. This safeguard protects devices from potential internal power issues.
The second safety feature is surge protection. This feature safeguards devices against power-related problems originating outside the network. Whether it's a lightning strike or other power surges within the wiring system, the switch prevents these surges from reaching and potentially damaging the connected devices.
Essential Information for Installers Choosing PoE Switches
If you're an installer tasked with choosing a PoE switch for a job, there are a few key factors you need to consider.
Power Requirements and Budget
First, you should determine the power requirements for each device and calculate your overall power budget. This involves assessing the wattage of individual devices and performing a quick calculation to arrive at a suitable power allocation. At BV Security, we can help you in meeting those requirements.
Another crucial aspect to consider is your data requirements. PoE switches are available in different speeds or bandwidths. It's important to assess your specific needs to ensure optimal performance. For instance, if you only require a device with a 10 megabits per second capability, there's no need to invest in a switch that supports a thousand megabits per second. Conversely, if you need a thousand, we want to ensure you have the appropriate switch and not one limited to 10 megabits per second. Therefore, it's essential to have a clear understanding of your data demands to make the right selection.
What type of environment can a BV PoE switch work in?
At BV Security, our switches are designed to thrive in diverse environments. We provide industrial-grade switches capable of operating in temperatures ranging from below 100 degrees to approximately 200 degrees Fahrenheit. These switches are ideal for a wide range of manufacturing scenarios, making them an excellent solution for a wide variety of applications.
Are BV systems NDAA Compliant?
In recent years, the government has enacted several laws surrounding networking devices and all network-connected equipment. In certain installations, it is required that all devices connected to the network be certified as NDAA compliant, which adheres to the regulations set by the National Defense Authorization Act. Many companies, especially in this price range, do not provide NDAA compliant options. Typically, acquiring NDAA compliant devices can cost two to three times more. However, BV Security offers several options within the same price range that ensure compliance. These options can be used in any building with federal contracts or government affiliations.
What sets BV Security apart from others in the same industry?
