Tycon Power Systems


Tycon 10-60VDC IN. 56V 70W 802.3bt OUT. DC to DC Converter and Gigabit PoE Injector.



The 5 Gigabit compatible TP-DC-1256GD-BT are very high power DC to DC converters / PoE inserters designed for the latest 802.3bt PoE standard. The unique PoE inserter supplies 56VDC Class 8 802.3bt PoE power on all 8 Ethernet wires (4 Pair). They support data throughput rates to 5Gigabit. They are backward compatible with 802.3at devices. 

The wide input voltage range (10VDC to 60VDC) makes these units universal in battery powered applications. The units input/output is isolated so they work in a negative ground or positive ground system. They have a locking DC wire terminal connector with two DC inputs for connecting 2 power sources, like a primary and backup power source. They have various protections for low voltage, surge, short circuit and overload. The units have a metal housing and come complete with a DIN Rail mounting kit for mounting to a standard DIN rail
