eks0919EKS angel makes with his new version of the Outdoor fiber optic cabling system "PE-Light"The networking of IP-capable devices with gigabit speed and high-power PoE possible. The system can be mounted in metal light poles. The centerpiece is a managed switch that can be managed via a web-based user interface.

It has four electrical ports, each with Gigabit Ethernet (10 / 100 / 1000 BASE-T) and high-power PoE with an output power of max. 60 W as well as two optical Gigabit uplinks (1000 BASE-SX / LX) for single or multimode fibers. A variant with an uplink will be available in a few months. As a result, up to four IP-capable terminals can be connected to an Ethernet network over distances of up to 10 km. Examples include digital traffic displays, parking systems, security cameras, weather stations or access points, with which, for example, WLAN hotspots can be connected.

Other components of the cabling system housed in a compact IP42 enclosure include a splice tray, power supply, fuses, and terminals for connecting the utility line. Since this system is not fixed like classic solutions in a weather protection box at the top of the light poles but behind the door opening, it can be comparatively easy to install and maintain. In addition, the sensitive technology is safe from deliberate damage.

The outdoor fiber optic cabling system is suitable for all grounded metal light poles according to DIN EN 40-5 and DIN 49778 as well as fire protection class V-1 or better. The 82x369x84 mm large housing is attached with hooks in the mast. It is made of gray, durable polycarbonate (PC GF 6-7) and has a transparent cover. Cable cross-sections from 1,5 to 16 mm² can be connected to the terminals for the supply line. To pass data and voltage from one system to the next, the terminals have an input and an output.

The four electrical ports of the managed switch have x-coded M12 ports and the optical uplink interfaces for LC plugs. Because matching pigtails are included, no patch cords are required. The supply voltage is 230 VAC with a mains frequency of 50 Hz / 60 Hz, the power consumption max. 140 W and the potential separation 2,5 kV (overvoltage category II). The electrical ports that comply with the IEEE standards 802.3af (class 1 to 3, type 1), 802.3at (class 4, type 2) and 802.3bt (class 1 to 6, type 3) each provide a high-power PoE Output power of up to 60 W over four pairs of wires ready. Total PoE power is limited to 120 W.

The outdoor cabling system can be used in a temperature range of -30 ° to + 65 ° C and a relative humidity of 5 to 95% rHD (non-condensing). It also fulfills the EMC requirements according to DIN EN 55032: 2016-02 - Class A and DIN EN 61000-6-2: 2006-03.
