Versa Technology unveils Gigabit Power over Ethernet injector

Versa Technology introduced the VX-Pi1000Gb PoE Injector, an IEEE-compliant 802.3af Power Over Ethernet  Injector which provides DC 48V over Ethernet cables.

Versa Technology has announced an addition to its Power over Ethernet Injector Line, the VX-Pi1000Gb PoE Injector, an IEEE compliant 802.3af Power Over Ethernet Injector which provides DC 48V and 1000 Mbps bandwidth capability over Ethernet cables. The new device inserts DC 48V power into RJ-45 Cat 5 Ethernet cabling, allowing the cable between the injector (VX-Pi1000Gb) and splitter to transfer data and power simultaneously. The product is especially intended for support of 802.11n wireless access points.

The VX-Pi1000 has an auto-detect for POE IEEE 802.3af equipment and devices over distances up to 100 meters. This feature prevents equipment from being damaged by incorrect installation. The VXPi1000 Works with EIA568, category 5, 5e or 6 ,2/4-pair cables for 10Base-T or 100Base-TX and 1000Base-T EMI standards. The injector complies with FCC, CE class B and 802.3af standards at operating tempetures 0°C~50°C, 5~90% RH.

"We expect this product to be used in industries across the board including education, hospitality, and the MDU market," says Shaw Tien, CEO of Versa Technology. "This product is going to make Wi-fi hotspots easier to install and offer greater coverage."

The VX-Pi1000Gb POE Injector starts at $36.99 per unit. For more about Versa Technology, go to or contact
