The Axis Communications T8642 Ethernet over Coax Device 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 T8642 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 device unit receives power from the coax and delivers up to full PoE+ power to the network camera. An optional power supply can be used if PoE is not available or if higher power for the network camera is needed.
