Flexible Extend Mode
The DIP switch provides “Standard”, “AI” , “Extend” and “VLAN” operation modes.
The 16 port poe switch (SP5200-16PFE2GE1GF-AI) operates as a normal IEEE 802.3at PoE+ switch in the “Standard” operation mode.
◆ In the “AI” operation mode, the device starts to detect whether the port is transmitting data. If the port does not transmit data and the duration exceeds a specific time, PoE will automatically power off and then re-power.
◆ In the “Extend” operation mode, the SP5200-16PFE2GE1GF-AI operates on a per-port basis at 10Mbps duplex operation but supports 20-watt PoE power output over a distance of up to 250 meters overcoming the 100m limit on Ethernet UTP cable. With this brand-new feature, the SP5200-16PFE2GE1GF provides an additional solution for 802.3at PoE+ distance extension, thus saving the cost of Ethernet cable installation.
◆ The “VLAN” operation mode features port-based VLAN function that helps to prevent the IP camera’s multicast or broadcast storm from influencing each other.
