8648: Power over Ethernet (PoE) splitter
eliminates the need to run 110/220VAC power to devices on a wired LAN
Why run wires to your LAN device? Put one of these boxes at each end of the CAT- 5 cable and the power is supplied over the Ethernet cable. Maximum cable length 300 feet. Works with any LAN device that uses a wall transformer power supply.
Power over Ethernet eliminates the need to run 110/220VAC power to a LAN device on a wired LAN. Installers only need to run a CAT-5 cable that will carry both data and power to each device.
The configuration is made up of two components: the injector takes data in from an Ethernet hub and power from a wall outlet and outputs both data and power through a CAT-5 cable. The splitter is placed at the end of the CAT-5 cable, returning data and power to their respective cables.
The Level One Power over Ethernet Splitter has the option of either outputting a 5VDC or 12VDC power signal from the -48VDC on the DATA IN port. Set 5V or 12V with the dip switch located on the side of the unit. The 12V setting powers a Geist Watchdog, or any other LAN device that uses a wall transformer power supply.
The specified maximum length of cable allowed between the injector and splitter should be 100 meters or approximately 300 feet. The signal will start to degrade past this length.
