DP208-LV Industrial 8G PoE Switch: Robust and efficient solution for IoT applications and industrial networks

05 September 2023 Product News
The power supply of IP peripheral devices via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is gaining increasing importance in industrial IoT and other commercial applications. The Industrial 8G PoE Switch DP208-LV offers users a convenient, reliable, and fail-safe solution for quickly establishing and operating such networks, thanks to its robust design and integrated power supply. The DP208-LV enables the reliable integration of up to eight devices such as IP cameras, wireless access points, network equipment, and powerful embedded PCs. With this switch, users have a powerful tool to efficiently manage their IP-based devices and ensure smooth and reliable connectivity in industrial and commercial environments..

Eight Ports for Redundant or Branched PoE+ Structures
The Ethernet switch features eight RJ45 LAN ports that can be flexibly configured as uplink or downlink. Each port offers an impressive bandwidth of 10/100/1000 Mbps, increasing the efficiency and responsiveness of the system.


For optimal performance even under heavy loads, the DP208-LV remains compatible with relevant standards. It supports Quality of Service (QoS) for effective network traffic management and allows the transmission of Jumbo Frames with a capacity of up to 9216 bytes. An advanced Broadcast Storm Protection, capable of filtering up to 100,000 packets per second, protects the system from information overload and preserves its integrity.

Additionally, the Industrial PoE Switch has a 1.5-bit Packet Buffer Memory as a temporary cache. This innovative buffer helps avoid data loss that can occur during unexpected data flow peaks. Thus, the DP208-LV guarantees unparalleled continuous performance, ensuring that your data remains secure and intact.

Support for Multiple Parallel IP Devices with High Power Consumption

The interface architecture of the DP208-LV complies with current Power over Ethernet (PoE) standards, including IEEE 802.af and PoE+ 802.at. This allows for a considerable output power of up to 30 watts per port, capable of powering a variety of devices, from IP cameras to embedded PCs and displays.

It's important to note that the total power of all ports is technically limited to 120 watts. This allows, for example, the simultaneous operation of eight PoE devices or four PoE+ consumers. Of course, any mix of both standards is possible as long as the allowable total power is not exceeded.

Furthermore, the optional redundant power supply of the switch is remarkably flexible and can be implemented with low voltage (LV) of 12 volts or 24 volts direct current (DC) thanks to the integrated Booster Power Inputs. This ensures a constant and reliable performance, regardless of the changing requirements at the deployment site.

Robust Design for Fail-Safe Operation in Challenging Conditions

The DP208-LV stands out for its efficient and silent operation without mechanical wear parts, allowing maintenance-free continuous operation 24/7, 365 days a year. With its remarkable technical reliability, reflected in a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of over 200,000 hours, the device offers an impressive uninterrupted operational time of more than two decades.

The DP208-LV proves itself even in demanding operating conditions. Operation in confined spaces such as control cabinets is effortless. Moreover, the device withstands an extreme temperature range from -40°C to +70°C, making it fully operational under various climatic conditions.

Versatile Use in Industry, IT Infrastructure, and Services

The DP208-LV is optimally tailored to the requirements of industrial IT networks. With its robust specifications, it forms the backbone for IoT-based structures in both Industry 4.0 and the service sector. In telecommunications, it ensures seamless and widespread WLAN coverage. Furthermore, by using IP cameras or sensors, it enables efficient video surveillance and traffic control, confirming its essential role in the core areas of digital infrastructure.
