Altronix Debuts eBridge Plus Ethernet over Coax/CAT5e Adapters for Extended Distances

Altronix, a manufacturer of low voltage power supplies and transmission solutions for the electronic security industry, is introducing the newest addition to its family of eBridgePlus products here at ISC West. eBridge100RMT Ethernet over Coax/CAT5e Adapter Kits transmit full duplex data at 100mbps and pass PoE compliant power over coax 304m (1000 ft), or CAT5e cable up to 500m (1640 ft) without repeaters.

"The ability to accommodate IP cameras and edge devices over coax cabling has proven to be an extremely pragmatic solution and a cost-effective way to upgrade analog systems to a networked platform. And the ability to transmit data and deliver power extended distances over Ethernet cabling without repeaters provides added savings," said Alan Forman, President, Altronix. "Our new eBridge100RMT Ethernet over Coax/CAT5e Adapter Kit efficiently fulfills both of these applications."

The adapter kit consists of an eBridge100RM receiver and an eBridge100TM transceiver. Both of these adapters, as well as cameras and edge devices, are powered by virtually any midspan or endspan. Remote management of IP cameras or devices to perform functions such as remote edge device reset, the ability to monitor current draw operational status monitoring, and more are possible when coupled with an Altronix NetWay8M/16M Midspan. eBridge100RMT is compatible with Megapixel, HD720, HD1080 and VGA cameras.

    In this episode, Security Today Editor-in-Chief Ralph C. Jensen Talks with Steve Karoly about security and transportation issues, specifically airport, airline and passenger security. It is the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA. Much has changed concerning security efforts about airport transportation security. The conversation talks about the role that technology plays in protecting the flying public and steps taken to ensure there hasn’t been a successful terrorist attack on a U.S. airliner since 9/11. Checkpoint and screening are evolving at a rapid pace, and the conversation centers on new measures and technologies that are being integrated into checkpoints.
