Power over Ethernet (PoE) for the SIMATIC MV440

 

All device versions of the SIMATIC MV440 product family are equipped with Power over Ethernet (PoE). This allows current, image and time-critical data to be transferred using a single cable, hereby considerably reducing cabling expense. With the SCALANCE X108 PoE/X308-2M PoE/XR324-4M PoE industrial ethernet switches, the corresponding network components are available.
