- Baumer introduces several versatile network components to support their industrial customers with a complete system solution.
As industrial machine vision moves toward higher resolution and more sophisticated applications, GigE camera technology is becoming more important, delivering more cable length, flexibility, and bandwidth. Baumer's high quality, industrial Gigabit Ethernet components allow the true potential of Baumer's standard GigE cameras or the new Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras to be quickly and simply realized on various network topologies.
Focused on solving industrial applications
Baumer makes industrial vision applications our specialty. With the tremendous growth in the use of both standard and PoE GigE cameras, the lack of appropriate industrial network components is concerning. To rectify the situation, Baumer has developed innovative industrial Power Switches and Power Injectors. The switches are designed to meet industrial standards with an operation voltage between 24 and 48 volts and DIN rail mounting. The injectors can supply operating voltages for up to two independent PoE cameras.
Versatility through Innovation
The new Power Switches are available in different variations. The 4-port switch allows you to connect up to 3 cameras. All ports are able to handle standard GigE cameras as well as PoE cameras. A clever technique automatically identifies which type of camera is connected to each port and delivers power only if requested by the camera. The extended 6-port switch is even more flexible and provides two more ports where the last port can be used as a standard copper port or as a SFP-compatible fiber optic port to realize set-ups in harsh environments or to communicate over longer distances.
With these new network components, Baumer continues to provide the best vision solution, giving you the chance to be one step ahead. Try our cameras and components today and see the improvement that "Versatility through Innovation” brings to your application.
