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.
