The Axis Communications T8641 Ethernet over Coax Base PoE+ Adapter enables camera installers to keep the legacy coax cabling when converting an analog system into digital. It delivers standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) and centrally-sourced power with no new cables required.
Axis T8641 is an ideal choice for installation of network cameras where coax cables are already present and may be very long or inaccessible. For ease of installation and guaranteed performance, it features an intuitive LED display, which gives confirmation of network and power status via the cable, with no need to access remote equipment to check connections.
This adapter can be used in those installations that require PoE transmission over 328’ (100 m). A full-rate network connection is delivered over maximum cable ranges that far exceed most recommended distances for analog video installation, so conversion of all legacy coaxial cable types is predictable and reliable.
The base unit receives PoE power and transmits it down the coax. An optional power supply can be used if PoE is not available or if higher power for the network camera is needed.
