Perle Systems Case Study
State Electric Company (STELCO) use Perle PoE Switches at Remote Substations for Security Camera Installation
Industrial Switches provide PoE and Copper to Fiber conversion for IP cameras at substation and transformer locations in the Maldives
Hassan Shifaz, Network Engineer at STELCO, comments, “We selected the Perle IDS Switches as they met the operational connectivity requirements and could provide power to the surveillance cameras. As the switches are fan-less and support high temperatures, the conditions within the NEMA enclosure prove no challenge to them. They are working well.”
Each Perle IDS Industrial PoE Switch provides up to 30 Watts power to the attached IP camera and performs copper to single mode fiber conversion. Their small form-factor ensured easy installation into the compact NEMA enclosures. Unused Ethernet ports are designated for future surveillance expansion with additional cameras, motion detector devices, and other equipment.
Perle Industrial PoE Switches operate in temperatures of -40°C to +75°C. All components are temperature rated and fully heat chamber tested. No ‘commercial-grade’ parts are used as these are likely to cause failures when exposed to high or low temperatures.
