Industrial use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) was once somewhat restricted by the fact that the PoE standard describes only point-to-point connections. In addition to expansions in product offerings, the inherent ruggedness, easy-of-use, and highly secure infrastructure within harsh environments has enabled the use of PoE in industrial applications. Meeting recognized industry standards (e.g. IEC 61850, IEEE 1613, NEMA TS 2) for ruggedness and communications performance, PoE technology is well suited for mission critical real-time applications requiring high levels of reliability and availability.
