Overview: The ClearView 4POE-SW is a 4-port PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch that supplements power to IP cameras when cable runs are long. The switch has one RJ-45 uplink port and four RJ-45 10/100 Base-T compatible LAN ports. The 4POE-SW is compatible with the ClearView Phoenix Network Video Recorder (NVR).

DIP Switches: There are four DIP switches on the front panel which allows you to manually set each PoE port for On/Off control.

LED Indicators: Each of the PoE ports features two corresponding LEDs. The LAN row of LEDs indicates the port is connected (solid green), data activity at 10M (slow flashing), or data activity at 100M (rapid flashing). The PoE row indicates whether the port is enabled for Power over Ethernet (solid green), or whether it is disabled (LED off). If LED is off, the port becomes a regular LAN port. The Uplink LED indicates connected (solid), and whether it is receiving data activity (slow or rapid flashing).

Power: The 4POE-SW supplies 48 volts DC/15.4 watts max per port for a total of up to 61.6 total watts of PoE power.
