Crestron Releases 24 -Port Power over Ethernet Switch

CEN-SWPOE-24 PoE (Power over Ethernet) Switch Simplifies Installation

Crestron today announced the release of the CEN -SWPOE -24, a 24 -port managed 10/100 Ethernet switch with PoE (Power over Ethernet) and dual Gigabit uplink ports. Extremely installer -friendly, the CEN -SWPOE -24 is configured via a simple -to -use Web browser interface, and Crestron Toolbox™ enables device auto -discovery. The CEN -SWPOE -24 offers control system networking made easy, providing Crestron guaranteed performance and reliability for a complete Ethernet network of touchpanels, keypads, control processors, and other devices in a 2 -space rack mount package.


A significant advance in control system networking, the 24 ports are uniquely rear -mounted for convenient use in a typical AV equipment rack. Full IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) is furnished simultaneously, eliminating the need for additional power supplies and wiring while providing a centralized power source for numerous PoE devices, such as the TPMC -4SM touchpanel, MPC -M5 controller and CEN -IDOCV Interface for Apple iPod®. Dual Gigabit Ethernet uplink/stacking ports assure ample bandwidth for the 24 high -speed 10/100 Base -T ports.

"Crestron continues to maximize system performance and simplify installation with products that capitalize on the high -speed of Ethernet and the convenience of PoE," said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "When we pioneered the use of Ethernet for control system networking, we defined a whole new standard for systems integration and control."

A front panel management port enables mirroring of any rear port for easy monitoring and troubleshooting. Customizable front panel labeling makes it easy to designate each port with clear, descriptive names.

Crestron provides an entire series of network connected, Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices with single -cable connectivity, eliminating the need for additional electrical and control wiring and resulting in clean, simplified installations and significantly reduced installation costs.
