IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet Extender

  • Overview
  • Long Distance PoE and Data Extension Solution
    PLANET POE-E101 is a newly designed and simple device which extends both the reach of Ethernet Data and IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet over the standard 100m (328 ft.) CAT5e/6 UTP cable to 200m, 300m or longer distance.

    Currently, PoE supported networking devices such as PoE IP cameras, PoE wireless access points and PoE IP phones have become the mainstream of network deployment because of the convenience of easy installation regardless of additional power supply. However, limited by the UTP cable specifications, only up to 100 meters (328 ft.) of cable could be applied for IP-based and PoE powered devices (PD) installation. Therefore, the POE-E101 is designed as the repeater to forward both Ethernet data and PoE power, thus extending the range of the PoE powered device installation. By just plug and play but with no additional power supply or setup required, one single POE-E101 can increase the PoE range to 200m. By daisy-chaining multiple PoE-E101s, it offers you great flexibility to extend the distance of PoE network to triple or quadruple.

    Providing PoE and Ethernet data extension ability, the POE-E101 is an ideal solution for service providers, campuses and public areas for networking application which requires PoE deployment of wireless access points, IP-based surveillance cameras or IP phones in any places. It enables you to centrally manage the power from one location easily, efficiently and cost-effectively.

    The POE-E101 PoE Extender is quite easy to be installed by simple plug and play. It is used between a power sourcing equipment (PSE) and a powered device (PD); it injects power to the PD without affecting the data transmission performance. The POE-E101 offers a cost effective and quick solution to doubling the standard range of PoE from 100 to 200 meters. There are 2 RJ-45 ports in a compact mini box of PoE Extender, of which the IN port functions as “PoE (Data and Power) input” and the other port on the other side functions as “PoE (Data and Power) output”. The “PoE OUT” port is also the power injectors which transmit DC voltage to the Cat5e/6 cable and transfer data and power simultaneously between the PSE and PD.

  • Applications
  • Long Distance PoE IP Surveillance

    Is 100 meters cable long enough to meet a wide range of IP surveillance deployments? The answer is certainly not. To apply the benefits of IP surveillance and also to achieve long-distance IP camera distribution, the POE-E101 PoE extender, is a quick and cost-effective option besides adopting a PoE Injector or PoE Ethernet Switch equipped with fiber optical interface. In the simplest application, the POE-E101 enables a PoE IP camera to be installed up to 200 meters away from a PoE Injector. The PoE Injector delivers PoE power over the first 100 meters to the POE-E101 over UTP cable, and then the POE-E101 forwards the Ethernet data and remaining POE power to the PoE IP camera. The POE-E101 does not require an external power supply and can be installed easily by just plug and play, meaning the operator does not need to configure the POE-E101.

    Long Distance PoE Wireless Access Point

    When being used in wireless LAN implementations, the POE-E101 enables wireless access points to be connected using standard Cat5e/6 cable over 100 meters from the power sourcing equipment (PSE), such as PoE switch, PoE injector hub and single port PoE injector. The POE-E101 is also powered by the incoming PoE on the Ethernet cable and does not require an external power feed. The POE-E101 will reduce the usage of cables and eliminate the need of dedicated electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place. It frees the security IP cameras and wireless APs deployment from restrictions of power outlet locations.
