OT Systems introduces EtherXtra™, the Ethernet over UTP Extender Series (ET1100UPp and ET1100U) designed to offer system integrators the flexibility of connecting IP devices over Cat.5e cable for longer monitoring distances.
EtherXtra™ ET1100UPp and ET1100U - Ethernet over UTP Extender Series
The ET1100UPp-R (Receiver) supplies power to the ET1100UPp-T (Transmitter) via the UTP cable by power-over-wire (PoW), which in turn the transmitter supplies power to its connected IP devices via Power over Ethernet (PoE). With the UTP Extender products, system integrators can install IP cameras or other IP devices on a Cat.5e cable up to 600m from the central monitoring station without needing an additional power point at the remote end. In addition, the ET1100UPp-R can get the power from a PoE switch; working together, a system integrator can easily construct and monitor a centralised power IP CCTV System.
This UTP extender series extend the Ethernet transmission distance by breaking the 100-meter Ethernet limit, enabling a simple system configuration and easy installation.
- Suitable for mid-range application (distance up to 600m)
- Low-cost and simple installation with Cat.5e cable deployment
- No power point required at the remote end
- Utilises centralised power system for better control and monitoring
