Crestron CEN-SWPOE-24 PoE Switch Designed to Simplify Installation

  • Crestron announced this week 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. 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, the company says.
  • An advance in control system networking, the 24 ports are 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.
