The IDS-710HP, a 10-port gigabit switch, comes with eight 100-W PoE copper ports and two SFP slots supporting 1G fiber, 2.5G fiber, or 10/100/1000 Mbps copper. In addition to transmitting network data, it has a built-in injector to supply up to 100 W PoE per port for a total of 450 W across all eight copper ports. Classified as Layer 2 power sourcing equipment (PSE), the switch will detect if connected devices are PoE-compatible and will automatically supply power. The IDS-710HP will not need to be replaced as power deliveries (PDs) are updated because it is fully compliant with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Standard 803.2bt, so it supports all PD types, classes, and topologies: Type 1, 2, 3, and 4; Class 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8; and single and dual signature. The IDS-710HP also has the ability to reboot attached PDs remotely, which saves technicians a trip and improves safety, as PDs are often in difficult-to-access locations. These rugged fan-less switches feature a corrosion-resistant IP20 aluminum case, a DC-voltage range of 44 to 57 V, and they operate in temperatures from minus 40° to 70°C.
