5G hardened multi-speed PoE Injector enables diverse infrastructure applications

Advantech has released the EKI-2701MPI-5G PoE injector. This compact, industrial-grade solution delivers Wi-Fi 6 network infrastructure, PoE and advanced connectivity to out-of-date, extant infrastructure. It supports multiple data rates (10M/100M/1G/2.5G/5G) and IEEE802.3bt 90W PoE output and is an outstanding choice for obsolete infrastructure applications needing heavy network connectivity.

The device supports downward compatible 2.5 and 5Gbps data rates to provide Wi-Fi 6 capabilities to existing wireless infrastructure. It further serves as a PoE PSE — giving up to 90W output to IP cameras, Wi-Fi 6 access points, and other connected devices. This injector’s PoE standard is downward-compatible for 15W, 30W, and 60W PoE PD devices, helping network infrastructure upgrades. Utilising this solution to upgrade infrastructure saves manpower while decreasing cabling weight and cost.

The device provides a compact, palm-sized form factor flexible to network infrastructure upgrade applications with limited space. Notwithstanding space constraints, it is capable of achieving network service without overheating. Indeed, it supports wide operating temperatures (-40C-75C/-40F-167°F) found in harsh working environments.
