In many houses television, telephone and other distribution networks based on two-wire cables are already installed, but no longer used. For example, a previously cable-bound telephone system may have been replaced by an up-to-date wireless system. Existing, unused cables can now be quickly connected to Mx2wire+ and transformed into network connections throughout an entire building.
An old analog camera can also be instantly exchanged for a digital, high-resolution MOBOTIX network camera without the need for any recabling and with all the associated benefits.
Ethernet & PoE via two-wire cable.
Using the Mx2wire+ system from MOBOTIX, an Ethernet network with PoE can be established using existing cables up to 500 m. This means that you can utilize a two-wire cable that is no longer in use (analog telephone line, antenna cable or bell wire, for instance) to connect a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet device such as a PC, WLAN, IP camera, IP telephone or IP door station without having to lay any new cables or implement any other constructional measures. An (identical) Mx2wire+ unit is required at both ends of the cable, and it automatically configures itself as either the sender or the receiver (MOBOTIX patent).
The significant additional benefit of Mx2wire+ is that, in addition to data, the power to operate PoE end devices (Power over Ethernet according to the IEEE 802.3af standard, a MOBOTIX network camera, for example) can also be transferred via the two-wire cable.
Mx2wire+ is supplied via PoE from the network cable that feeds in. The connected end devices are supplied with up to 7 watts via PoE. Mx2wire+ does not therefore require its own power supply, as the network distributor (switch) typically supplies power over the data cables (PoE) so that the two Mx2wire+ units as well as the standard PoE end device are supplied.
Mx2wire+ is delivered in a standard socket frame in different designs, however, it can also be used with the surface-mounted socket provided.
