Tyco Electronics Mag45 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Plus PSE-ICM connector meets both IEEE 802.3AF/AT and PoETec specifications. The interface design combines a RJ-45 connector with integrated gigabit magnetics and an embedded PoE Plus controller board.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Tyco Electronics has developed a high-power interface, the Mag45 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Plus PSE-ICM connector, to meet both IEEE 802.3AF/AT and PoETec specifications. The interface design combines a RJ-45 connector with integrated gigabit magnetics and an embedded PoE Plus controller board -- allowing data and power to be transmitted over the same Ethernet cable via existing Cat5 infrastructures. This latest development utilizes PoE technology to offer a high current capacity up to 600 mA per port.

According to the company, the technological capabilities of the Mag45 interface will prove beneficial to OEMs as it simplifies the high-density distributed power system delivery, without retooling the existing network, and improves network functionality. Additionally, cost savings are achieved through the reduced development cost of the PoE Plus board and overall ICM footprint -- leading to accelerated product time to market.

Additional features include a surge-protected system with single voltage feeding, a low channel resistance and a compact, EMI-optimized and thermal design. The complete product line offers fully integrated, PoE Plus-enabled and standard 10/100/1000 solutions in compatible footprints.
