The white Mx2wire+ Media Converter Set from MOBOTIX turns an existing 2-wire cable quickly into a modern multimedia cable. The Mx2wire+ set contains all components necessary to set up an Ethernet connection using a 2-wire cable (telephone, coaxial, bell wire, CAT7). The set comes with a sender/receiver unit as well as accessories for flush-mounting or an on-wall assembly.
Using the Mx2wire system, an Ethernet network with PoE can be established using existing cables up to 1,640.4’ (500m). You can utilize a 2-wire cable that is no longer in use (analog telephone line, antenna cable or bell wire, for instance) to connect a 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet device such as a PC, WLAN, IP camera, IP telephone, or IP door station without having to lay any new cables or implement any other constructional measures. An (identical) Mx2wire unit is required at both ends of the cable, and it automatically configures itself as either the sender or the receiver.
The significant additional benefit of Mx2wire is that in addition to data, the power to operate PoE end devices (Power over Ethernet according to the IEEE 802.3af standard, a MOBOTIX network camera, for example) can also be transferred via the 2-wire cable.
Mx2wire is supplied via PoE from the network input cable. The connected end devices are supplied with up to 7W via PoE. Mx2wire does not therefore require its own power supply, as the network distributor (switch) typically supplies power over the data cables (PoE) so that the two Mx2wire units as well as the standard PoE end device are supplied power.
