YuanLey 5 Port Full Gigabit Ethernet PoE Switch is an active PoE switch with 4 PoE ports and 1 Uplink port, all ports support 10/100/1000Mbps speed, PoE ports support 802.3af/at standard, maximum power reaches 78w.
Built-in industrial power supply, compliance with IEEE 802.3af/at PoE power supply standards. The maximum PoE output power of the whole switch is 78W, and the maximum PoE output power of a single port is 30W.
Automatically detect powered devices. All port supported MDI/MDIX auto flip and self negotiation. Plug and Play, just plug in the power cord
When the extend mode is enabled, all PoE ports support VLAN function, the traffic is isolated from each other, improve the phenomenon of discontinuity and mosaic in surveillance networks, improve network safety.
YuanLey 5 Port Gigabit PoE Switch Review
The low-power silent design ensures stable operation. The self-developed power supply and high redundancy design provide long-term stable PoE power output. It can meet the needs of security monitoring, teleconferencing systems, wireless coverage and other POE power supply scenarios.
There is no on/off switch. Plugging the power supply in turns the switch on. I recommend doing this first, then connect the POE devices at a time. I did try plugging-in/unplugging the power supply with all POE devices connected. There was no problem.
I connected 6 IP cameras to the switch. At full load, with all cameras booting at the same time and infra on (they turn on during boot), cameras+switch used around 50w (kill-a-watt). With the infra off, cameras+switch used around 35w. For these reasons, I was not able to verify the 120w output claim.
The switch was never even warm. The cameras did get HOT but survived the test. The power brick was more of interest because it will be in a VERY HOT attic. It was normally warm. To stress test, I wrapped it in a towel and put all cameras in a dark room to triggered the infra. In a few hours, the brick got quite hot, but not bad. Left it that way for a day. The conclusion is that it should survive my attic.
Overall, the YuanLey 5 Port Full Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ Switch is a must-have for anyone looking for a PoE switch, especially for an IP camera system.
