Industry-leading Integration of PoE Technology and Renewable Power System
PLANET’s BSP-360 is a newly-launched Renewable Energy Industrial 802.3at PoE Managed Ethernet Switch. It is designed for surveillance or wireless network deployment and remotely monitors and manages IP-based devices. The BSP-360 can be charged by natural sources of energy, such as solar, wind and hydroelectric power. This helps conserve energy and money by powering remote IP cameras and wireless APs, especially in applications as dams, forests, deserts, national parks, nature/animal protection areas and highways.
Zero-Carbon and Stable Power Supply
The BSP-360 utilizes the solar power sourcing and co-works with a common nickel-cadmium battery or lead-acid battery to form an independent solar power supply system for outdoor networking. The BSP-360 delivers zero-carbon and uninterruptible PoE power supply for continuous outdoor wireless and IP surveillance applications without the need of any cabling. It can power devices and be charged at the same time during the day to continue operation at night.
Built-in Unique Power Functions for Battery Management
As it is the power managed for battery and power consumption, the BSP-360 features the following special power management functions:
- Battery current usage and status
- Battery capacity statistics
- Low voltage cut-off protection
Battery Current Usage status and Statistics
The administrator can remotely access the BSP-360 to know the power status of the battery, renewable energy, and the estimated time of power consumption.
Low Voltage Cut-Off Protection
If the power is too low to empower the system and IP devices, the system will automatically power off the device with low priority in order to make sure the system works normally. An alert is then sent to the administrator at the same time.
Built-in Unique PoE Functions for Powered Devices Management
As it is the managed PoE switch for surveillance, wireless and VoIP networks, the BSP-360 features the following special PoE management functions:
- PD alive check
- PoE schedule
- PoE usage monitoring
- Scheduled power recycling
Intelligent Powered Device Alive Check
The BSP-360 can be configured to monitor connected PD (Powered Device) status in real time via ping action. Once the PD stops working and responding, the BSP-360 will resume the PoE port power and power back up the PD. It will greatly enhance the network reliability through the PoE port resetting the PD’s power source and reducing administrator management burden.
Scheduled Power Recycling
The BSP-360 allows each of the connected PoE IP cameras or PoE wireless access points to reboot at a specific time each week. Therefore, it will reduce the chance of IP camera or AP crash resulting from buffer overflow.
PoE Schedule for Energy Saving
The environmentally friendly BSP-360 can effectively control the power supply while still giving high watts of power. The “PoE schedule” function helps you to enable or disable PoE power feeding for each PoE port during specified time intervals and it is a powerful function to help SMBs or enterprises save power and budget. It also increases security by powering off PDs that should not be in use during non-business hours.
PoE Usage Monitoring and Intelligent LED Indicator for Real-time PoE Usage
Via the power usage chart in the web management interface, the BSP-360 enables the administrator to monitor the status of the power usage of the connected PDs in real time. Thus, it greatly enhances the management efficiency of the facilities. Moreover, the BSP-360 helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily and efficiently via its advanced LED indication. Called “PoE Power Usage”, the front panel of the BSP-360 has three LED indicators of different power usages.
