Gigabit Extender Lets You Cascade Your Existing PoE/PoE+ Connection up to 500 MetersThis single-port connector allows you to extend the connection between your powered source device, such as a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, and a remote PoE device an extra 328 feet (100 meters). In addition, by cascading as many as four NPOE-EXT-1G30 extenders, you can extend that connection as far as 1640 feet (500 meters) total. Just connect the extender between two sections of Cat5e/6/6a cable up to 328 feet each. Saves You Time and Money on Unnecessary Equipment UpdatesThe compact PoE/PoE+ extender delivers 10/100/1000 Mbps of data and up to 30 watts of power using existing Cat5e/6/6a cables, eliminating the need to install new AC power lines and electrical outlets. This cost-effective extender sends DC power and Ethernet data through your Ethernet cable, cutting down on cable clutter, equipment costs and installation time and labor. It also automatically detects PoE/PoE+ equipment and protects it from being damaged by incorrect installation. Supports Power over Ethernet to Save You Money and Give You More Installation ChoicesBecause this extender supports PoE, it can supply the power to operate compatible IEEE 802.3at/af PoE devices, such as security cameras, VoIP telephones, point-of-sale kiosks and access control devices. This saves you the expense and effort of purchasing, connecting and installing individual power supplies for each device. It also helps you install PoE devices in areas far away from AC outlets, such as poles or ceilings. It supports half/full-duplex 1 Gbps communication for sending and receiving data simultaneously, and protects your PoE device against short circuits and overloads. IP65 Rating Denotes Resistance to Dust and WaterThe IP65 rating means the aluminum housing is not only 100% protected against dust, but also able to endure water spray, such as from a nozzle, from all directions. This makes the NPOE-EXT-1G30WP ideally suited to outdoor use. Simple Plug-and-Play Installation Has Your Device Connected in MinutesNo configuration or software is required to add the NPOE-EXT-1G30WP to your LAN. Just connect your switch or network jack and your PoE/PoE+ device to the shielded RJ45 Power + Data ports using existing Cat5e/6/6a cable. LEDs indicate the unit is receiving power and is ready to transmit data. Designed for Installation Almost AnywhereMounting holes are featured for installing the extender on a shelf, desktop, wall or any other smooth surface with user-supplied hardware. The silver aluminum housing fits in the palm of your hand, so it is small enough to hide away without interfering with your workflow or décor. The fanless design is ideal for silent operation.
