White paper: Power over Ethernet’s (PoE) potential for the lighting industry

June 30, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
A white paper from Maxim Integrated explores how LED lamps impact users' PoE networks. Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables LED lighting fixtures to use a power supply that is easier, safer, and less expensive to install than traditional power infrastructure. A new white paper from Maxim Integrated explores how PoE can transform power saving LEDs into smart sensor hubs.

The white paper, “ The Bright New Outlook for LEDs: New Drivers, New Possibilities ” discusses:

- How PoE can finally fulfil the full promise and profitability of LED lighting.

- How LEDs can be paired with other key components on PoE and lay the groundwork for new Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities for customers.

- How PoE makes light fixtures plug and play with standard RJ45 connectors.

- How to make lighting part of an IT infrastructure so you can monitor, measure, and control it.
