New Ethernet communication modules offer optional PoE model

Acromag has extended their AP580 Series PCIe-based AcroPack modules with
the addition of a new Power over Ethernet (PoE) model.

The AP580 Series mini boards provide a single Ethernet 10, 100, or 1000
Mbps port. The optional PoE model, AP580E-POE-LF, provides 52V DC and up to 10
watts of power to powered devices (PD). The PoE Ethernet communication module avoids
other traffic on a network and is ideal for a video camera, VOIP phone, or any
other powered device.

Key features of the new PoE model include down-facing plug-in 100-pin
connector ensuring a secure connection for I/O; Intel i210 Ethernet controller
PROset supported to assist with diagnostics, tests and configuration; and
ability to plug into AcroPack PCIe, VPX and XMC carriers in any combination for
embedded applications running on Linux, Windows, or VxWorks operating systems.

The AcroPack modules can be easily integrated with real-time software
application programs using Acromag’s C libraries for VxWorks and other
operating systems. The libraries provide generic routines (with source code) to
handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. The developer can use demonstration
programs to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to
the application program, saving hours of troubleshooting and debugging time.

This COTS line of AcroPacks is SWaP-C optimised, RoHS compliant and
ideal for scientific development labs, military and aerospace, defence and
automation applications.

Headquartered near Detroit, Michigan, Acromag offers a complete line of
embedded I/O products including bus boards, mezzanine modules, wiring
accessories, and software.

Acromag is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Metromatics.
