Gig-speed media converter extends distance, acts as PoE injector
Omnitron Systems' OmniConverter GPoE/SE achieves gig speeds, overcomes copper's 100-meter distance limitation, and injects power for IP cameras, phones and wireless access points.
The OmniConverter GPoE/SE Gigabit Ethernet media converter with Power over Ethernet capability from Omnitron Systems Technology converts 1000Base-X fiber to 10/100/1000 UTP and functions as power sourcing equipment (PSE) by injecting PoE through the RJ45 port, the company says.
Part of the OmniConverter family of midspan media converters, the GPoE/SE features one or two 802.3af-powered RJ45 ports.
According to Rammy Bahalul, vice president of marketing for Omnitron Systems Technology, the converter "overcomes the 100-meter distance limitation of copper UTP cabling and extends distances up to 140 kilometers to PoE surveillance cameras, IP phones and wireless access points with fiber. The GPoE/SE costs up to 60 percent less than other converters, and delivers value with plug-and-play installation and hardened operating temperature range."
