Altronix, a manufacturer of low-voltage power supplies and transmission solutions for the electronic security industry, introduced Pace™ Long Range Ethernet Adapters at ISC West. The latest addition to Altronix’s expanding line of adaptive transmission solutions, Pace1PRMT makes it possible for users to upgrade surveillance and security systems with new IP cameras and edge devices using existing or legacy infrastructure at distances greater than 100m (328 ft.) without repeaters. Pace1PRMT is PoE/PoE+ compliant and transmits data at 100mbps full duplex over CAT5e or higher cable up to 500m (1,640 ft.), and up to 150m (500 ft.) over single twisted pair (UTP).
“Our new Pace Long Range Ethernet Adapters allow systems with CAT5e infrastructure to cost-efficiently accommodate IP cameras and edge devices over longer distances, or when upgrading systems with legacy UTP infrastructure,” said Alan Forman, president of Altronix. “Deploying edge devices further from the head-end without compromising performance or having to use repeaters provides numerous installation, budgetary and security advantages.”
The Pace1PRMT kit consists of a Pace1PRM receiver and a Pace1PTM transceiver. Both of these adapters, as well as cameras and edge devices, are powered by virtually any midspan or endspan. Remote management of IP cameras or devices to perform functions such as remote edge device reset, plus the abilities to monitor current draw, operational status monitoring and more are possible when coupled with an Altronix NetWay8M/16M Midspan. Pace1PRMT is compatible with Megapixel, HD720, HD1080 and VGA cameras.
