KBC Networks, the manufacturer of industrial transmission equipment for IP and high-definition systems, introduced its eCopper product line. It features Ethernet over Coax (EoC) and Ethernet over UTP (EoU) transmission in a multi-port design. It is suitable for using existing copper-cable infrastructure to accommodate IP cameras. These products offer a way to connect the latest in IP cameras using existing coax or copper wiring to a remote monitoring station. Through the copper infrastructure, eCopper powers both its transmitter and remote cameras, eliminating the need for any other power source at the camera site. Central monitoring location The product also provides Power over Coax (PoC) management, giving system operators the ability to remotely turn each port’s power on and off from the central monitoring location. This PoC feature is described as a plug-and-play solution with a GUI for set-up and system maintenance. Domenic Isola, director of strategic accounts for KBC Networks said: “Our eCopper products offer integrators an excellent alternative to rewiring an entire location when they upgrade to IP cameras. It makes retrofitting affordable and adds power and functionality while using existing infrastructure.” The products offer a single-channel transmitter and single, four, eight and 16-channel receivers, available for both EoC and EoU transmission. The single-channel transmitter and receiver can be wall-mounted while the four-channel offers a wall or DIN rail mount and the eight and 16-channel receivers come as a 1U-high rack mount.
