A true plug and play solution for connecting and powering IP cameras over legacy coaxial cabling. Please note that you also have to purchase the HIGHWIRE Powerstar Base unit to complete installation.
HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad's unique low-power design and efficient power delivery enables long range Ethernet over coax. It works even over the lowest grade cable, such as the high-resistance, copper-clad steel (CCS) types found in many legacy installations. This means that legacy coax upgrades can be planned with confidence, while a quick check of the SafeView power level display reaffirms that the device connections will continue to be reliable, whatever the cable used.
For predictable network operation with no restrictions, HIGHWIRE technology delivers a full 200Mbit/s of bandwidth at 300m (1000ft) of RG59 or 500m (1600ft) of RG11 coax. The Duo variant of HIGHWIRE is designed for the camera end of the coax and, with an integrated two-port PoE switch, enables connection of two IP cameras over a single coax.
In the simplest implementation, the base unit receives power from a standard PoE switch or Veracity's 57V DC PCU and transmits PoE over the coax. The Quad unit receives this power and delivers up to 25W shared between up to four IP cameras. No external power cabling is required and all detection and setup occurs automatically. For higher PoE power budgets, an optional Veracity 57V DC PSU may be used to power the Quad unit locally at the camera end delivering 40W or 78W depending on the PSU model.
