Veracity VHW-HW overview

  • 1Description

Easily convert your BNC cabling into a high-speed RJ45 Ethernet connection with the Highwire Ethernet over Coax Adapter from Veracity. Using the adapter, you can replace analog cameras with IP cameras, while still using your existing cables. This package includes one adapter, however, two adapters per link are required, one connected to your IP camera and one connected to your PoE switch.

Speed, duplex, and crossover are sensed as soon as you connect the adapter to your system so that no setup is required. Furthermore, no configuration is required when you connect the unit to each end of the coaxial cable, as the link will be established automatically.

The Ethernet over Coax Adapter is invisible to Ethernet data, and it does not need a MAC or IP address. In addition to auto-optimizing for all 75 ohm coaxial cables, the long connection range of the converter makes it suitable for network connections beyond 328' (100m).

Featuring a universal power input, the Highwire Ethernet over Coax Adapter is suitable for low-voltage installations and use with legacy coaxial cables. Compared to Cat 5 cables, the coaxial cables coil and bend, enabling you to provide network access to elevator carriages, VoIP items, security systems, lift panels, and similar devices.

    Veracity VHW-HW reviews

    Highwire Ethernet over Coax Adapter (Single) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Works well. I used this to bring internet to another building half a mile away over coax. Connection is solid and transparent. Latency is fantastic < 1ms. Jitter is nonexistent on this link. Power outages and such are handled with ease--the device snaps back online in seconds. For all practical purposes, this device is install and forget. There are no settings. Other than the LEDs on the unit, there is no way to check if it's working which is just fine in this case. The only issue is that these devices seems overly sensitive to power surges. I've lost several units (for no obvious reason) due to lightning. The house wasn't hit, and more or less these units are the only casualty every time! After taking it apart, it appears that it burns out due to a spark across some of the pins--clearly a surge of some kind. Lightning is lightning, but I do think these devices seem more prone to failure than the rest of the sensitive network gear in my house. I've replaced this unit so many times that I finally went over to L-com and bought a whole bunch of ethernet and coax surge protectors to protect both sides of the Highwire unit and to provide a better ground path for any potential surges. Time will tell. Other than that bit about sensitivity to lightning, I've been using these for several years now and they've been absolutely perfect. They pair great with the VHW-WMB wall mounting bracket. Also, if you're seeking power for this device, I've had great success using PoE (Trendnet and TP-Link both sell excellent PoE spliiter units) as well as normal 12v wall wart power supplies.
