PWR Switches

Switch 4210 9-portPWR Front panel

Each Switch 4210 9-portPWR unit provides eight10/100Base-TXautosensing Ethernet ports, one10/100/1000Base-TEthernet port, one 100/1000Base SFP ports, and one Console port. The SFP port and the10/100/1000BASE-TEthernet port form a Combo port. You can use either the SFP port or the10/100/1000BASE-TEthernet port at one time.

Each Switch 4210 9-portPWR provides a security slot through which you can lock

 

the device together with an irremovable object to prevent theft. The security slot is

 

located on the left side panel, as shown in Figure 7.

Switch 4210 PWR

18-port

Power system

Switch 4210 PWR 9-portunits are able to power attached devices using standard 802.3af Power over Ethernet. The total available power for PoE on this model is 70W, enough to power four ports at full 15.4W required of the PoE standard. Each Switch 42109-portPWR unit supports AC input.

Rated Voltage Range: 100 VAC to 240 VAC, 50 Hz/60 Hz

Input voltage range: 90 VAC to 264 VAC, 47 HZ to 63 Hz

Cooling system

The Switch 4210 9-portPWR units each run two fans for heat dissipation.

Front panel

Switch 4210s 18-portPWR each provide sixteen10/100Base-TXautosensing Ethernet ports, two10/100/1000Base-TEthernet ports, two 100/1000Base SFP ports, and one Console port. Each SFP port and the corresponding10/100/1000BASE-TEthernet port form a Combo port. For each Combo port, either the SFP port or the corresponding10/100/1000BASE-TEthernet port can be used at a time.
