PSW-11 unit - is an Outdoor Multifunction Gigabit Switch designed for connection of single IP-camera via optics. This switch has two ports.The first port is Gigabit optic (SFP), the second one – copper-based Fast Ethernet.
The optical port is designed for its connection to other switches (media converters). Fast Ethernet port is designed for connecting an IP-video camera. It supports PoE power that remotely powers both IP video camera and TFortis TH-02 camera housing over simple 4-pair twisted pair cable. For operation with PSW-11 via optics, it is recommended to use FC-2 media converter.
PSW-11 is a compact weatherproof box made of durable high-quality plastic. Switchboard and power supply are installed inside the unit. Dimensions of the device do not exceed 160х160х90 mm, which makes it convenient for installation in places where other devices are problematically to place. Moreover, IP66 protection makes the unit unpretentious to the operating conditions.
Precisely the balanced integration of necessary functions inside the PSW-11 allows reducing the number of additional equipment, what makes the design and installation of the entire video surveillance system simpler, more reliable and more economical.

Powering Video Camera and Camera Housing over PoE
The device has 1 port for connecting video camera. This port is equipped with PoE midspan that allows to remotely powering both video camera and camera housing over simple 4-pair twisted pair cable. Data transferring, video camera and thermal housing powering - everything will be performed over a single cable. You no longer have to use the additional power cable to the video camera. This will help you to save on materials and work. Moreover, even if there are power supplies nearby video cameras, there may be problems with the legalization of its use (you need to put a watt-hour meter, conduct reconciliation, etc.). By using PSW-11, you are solving the above problems and don’t spend additional money on that. With the PSW-11, you can mount video cameras where they need to be, but not where they could be.
Uninterrupted Power Supply to Video Camera
If you connect PSW-11 through the UPS, then, due to PoE power, you simultaneously provide backup power to the video cameras themselves.
Operation via Optics over Long Distances
PSW-11 has a SFP port where installed SFP-module for connection of optical fiber.
Comfortable activation of video cameras at low ambient temperature
The most critical moment in the operation of the video camera is the process of its activation at low ambient temperature. Precisely a cold start can cause the failure of an expensive video camera. To avoid such cases, PSW-11 unit is implemented with preheating of camera housing. After power is applied to the unit, initially will be powered heating element of the camera housing but only after a while the video camera itself. This delay allows obtaining comfortable conditions for turning video camera on and you will be able to save expensive equipment.
Protection against video cameras’ hanging
PSW-11 constantly monitors the connection between video camera and switch. If there is a loss of traffic from the video camera, it is decided that camera is hanging. Then PSW-11 restarts the video camera via PoE. This function allows you to minimize the maintenance of the video surveillance system on the site. This function can be disabled by jumpers.
Device Configuration via Jumpers
Before switching on, you need to set the operating modes. This procedure is simple and consists of installing the appropriate jumpers. For example, you can enable or disable the preheating function of the camera housings for comfortable start of IP cameras at low temperature, anti-hanging function or protection from a broadcast storm.
Power inputs and port that camera is connected to have high-power surge protection elements (lightning protection). This allows both PSW-11 switch and video cameras to function in an unfavorable electromagnetic environment.
Device dimensions do not exceed 160х160х90 mm. This area is smaller than a sheet of A4 paper. PSW-11 is convenient to place in cabinets. The presence of mounting elements on the plate allows you to mount it simply and reliably. Moreover, IP66 protection makes the unit unpretentious to the operating conditions.
Harsh Operating Conditions
PSW-11 does not require maintenance and is designed for 24-hour outdoor operation at ambient temperature from minus 60°C to plus 50°C.
