Device Transports IP Video & Operating Power Over Coax
ComNet, Communication Networks, released a unique product that transports IP video from the camera using existing coaxial cable while delivering operating power for the devices to be transported back through the same coaxial cable to provide operating power for the Power over Ethernet (PoE) camera. This all-new product, designated the ComNet CWFE1POCOAX, eliminates the need to have a separate power source at the remote location to provide operating power for the devices. Based on the IEEE 802.3af standard for PoE, the CWFE1POCOAX provides 15 Watts of 48 VDC power to the remote devices. It transports Ethernet data at rates of up to 100 Mbps over a distance of 230 meters. This product allows the user to install or upgrade to IP cameras that can operate using PoE in remote locations while offering significant cost savings by not having to install a separate power source.
