Switch to green with your Ethernet
You now have the option to choose the green path if you want to upgrade to a gigabit network. This TL-SG1005D 5-port Gigabit desktop switch features the latest innovative, energy-efficient technology that can greatly expand your network capacity, with much less power consumption. It automatically adjusts power consumption based on link status and cable length to improve your network’s carbon footprint.
Power down when ports are not active
When a computer or network device is powered off, the corresponding port on a traditional switch continues to consume a significant amount of power. The TL-SG1005D automatically detects the link status of each port and reduces the power consumption of ports that are idle, saving up to 70% power here.
Energy allocation according to cable length
Ideally, shorter cables would consume less power because less energy is lost along the length of the cable. This is not the case with most devices, as they will send the same amount of power over the cable regardless of what length is used.
