The Axis Communications 5008-001 is a PoE splitter specifically designed for use with an AXIS 206 or AXIS 207 network camera. A PoE splitter does the exact opposite of a PoE injector. Instead of combining power and data, it splits the power and data coming over the network into two separate transmissions. By using a PoE injector at the source end and a PoE splitter at the receiving end, a single Ethernet cable can be used to supply both power and data to network cameras that are not PoE compatible. This greatly simplifies the installation process, allowing non PoE cameras to be placed in areas inaccessible to an AC outlet. When used together with a UPS, PoE will also keep the camera operating in the event of a localized power failure.
Note: Not for use with AXIS 207MW and AXIS 207W Network Cameras
- Power over Ethernet for Non PoE Cameras
- A PoE splitter takes the combined data and power signal transmitted from a PoE injector at the source end and splits it into two separate power and data cables at the camera end. This allows non PoE equipped cameras to take full advantage that PoE technology has to offer. By having a single Ethernet cable deliver both data and power over the network, camera installation is no longer limited to areas in close proximity to an AC outlet. This will make it easy to install the camera in hallways, near ceilings, inside outdoor housings, on rooftops and numerous other environments.
- Fail Safe Operation
- When used together with a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), a PoE splitter will guarantee that the camera remains operational in the event of a power failure occurring at the camera end. Needless to say this is a most important feature for critical security applications which cannot afford any camera down time.
