PoE for Intersection Monitoring
Improving traffic flow is a growing priority for expanding cities and towns, 

PoE for Intersection Monitoringand one of the most efficient ways to reduce accidents and heighten safety is the use of intersection monitoring through video recording. Not only is video used to determine ways to decrease traffic congestion – it can also be reviewed for accident footage, fault resolution, and to assure that traffic systems are working correctly.

 
Comtrol's RocketLinx ES7528 Power over Ethernet switches are being deployed to connect intersection devices to remote traffic control centers.

RocketLinx PoE Feature: Voltage Boost (VB)
RocketLinx ES7106-VBAll of our RocketLinx VB switches are capable of being powered directly from low voltage 12 and 24 volt sources. This is important, because PoE switches need to power devices with 48VDC output.  This usually requires an extra power supply.  However, VB switches overcome this by incorporating special DC-DC conversion circuitry that allows the switch to be powered by the lower voltage and ups the voltage internally to output 48 volts on the PoE lines.
