MID-POE series of PoE transformers extended
Würth Elektronik has expanded its MID-POE Power over Ethernet transformer series to include PoE++.
These SMT transformers are described as suitable for Flyback or Active Clamp Forward power supplies that comply with the IEEE 802.3bt (four pair power over Ethernet, 4PPoE, also known as PoE++) standard. The ten new transformers can provide an output power of up to 95 W.
“Demand for more power in Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) devices has risen, due to the advancements in smart and IoT (Internet of Things) applications,” says the company.
“In response to this demand, Würth Elektronik expanded its MID-POE series for IEEE 802.3bt Type 3 (60 W) and Type 4 (90 W) devices. These transformers utilise the low-profile EFD20 and EFD25 packages and offer high power densities over a wide range of common PoE output voltages.”
The new series is said to be suitable for devices such as video conferencing systems, automation control systems, smart IP cameras and much more.
