Constrained by the distance limits of PoE over copper? Incorporate fiber into your network! This PoE PSE Media Converter not only enables you to connect copper cables to long-distance fiber data links, it also safely powers compatible devices plugged in on the copper side. Fully compliant with the 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, the converter functions as power source equipment (PSE) to provide -48 VDC power via copper wiring to access points, cameras, and similar devices in areas without nearby power outlets. For equipment protection, it offers overcurrent and undercurrent detection, as well as fault protection input and power monitoring. It also has powered device signature sensing to detect when a 802.3af compliant device is connected downstream. Plus, link-fault passthrough and far-end fault detection features keep you from sending valuable data across invalid links.
This product is covered by one of more of the following: United States Patent Nos. 7,457,250; 8,902,760; and/or 9,019,838.
- Supports 802.3x flow control on full-duplex ports and backpressure on 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX half-duplex ports.
- Powered device (PD) signature sending detects when a PoE device is connected.
- A low-cost, economical solution for powering PoE devices over the same CATx link used for data communications.
