How This Product Works
4 of the 8 Auto-Negotiation RJ45 ports (port-1 to port-4) of the switch support Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality. These PoE ports can automatically detect and supply power with IEEE 802.3af compliant Powered Devices (PDs). In this instance, electrical power is transmitted along with data in one single cable, allowing you to expand your network into areas where there are no power lines or outlets and fix devices such as APs, IP Cameras or IP Phones, etc.
TL-SG1008P’s priority* function helps protect the system when the system power is overloaded. If all PoE PDs power consumption is greater than or equal to 53W, a priority will be arranged among the PoE ports and the system will cut off the power of the lowest-priority port.
Port Priority Function
*Priority (port-1>port-2>port-3>port-4): For example, Port 1, 2, and 4 are using 15.4w each (maximum power per port is 15.4W) and the system power is at 46.2w total (PoE max LED is red). If there is an additional PD inserted to Port 3 with 10w, then the system will cut off Port 4 to protect the system. Thus, Port 1, 2 will use 15.4w, and Port3 will use 10w, and no power will be supplied to Port 4.
Easy To Use
The TL-SG1008P is easy to install and use with no configuration required. With a desktop design, outstanding performance and quality, the TL-SG1008P is a great selection for expanding your home or office network.
