Advantech's EKI-2726FHPI is designed for industrial applications and is able to do PoE+ and is DIN-rail mountable. Courtesy: AdvantechAdvantech’s EKI-2726FHPI is targeted at PoE enabled devices, which are quite often used by IP cameras and high power demand switch projects. Compliant to IEEE 802.3af/at standard, the EKI-2726FHPI device offers four GbE + two SFP ports and the ability to do PoE+, allowing it to supply 15.4 W at 48V to 30 W at 55 V for high power applications in each of its four ports.

It is DIN rail mountable with industrial grade dual 12~48 V dc power input. The wide temperature range of -40-75 C allows it to survive adverse conditions. The Jumbo Frame Support can work with high powered video surveillance equipment. The EKI-2726FHPI is designed for industrial applications offering UL508 and Class I, Division 2 certification plus a compact metal housing contributes to the IP30 rating. 

It is also UL/cUL approved and adds IEEE802.3af/at PoE standard certification.
