200M Powerline + 802.3af PoE Power Adapter


  • Overview
  • Extending PoE Connecting Range Easily and Eliminating Dead Spots
    Powerline communication (PLC) and Power over Ethernet (PoE) are both advanced technology to simplify cabling and quickly building an Ethernet network. PLANET PL-502P is a powerline adapter acting as a PoE injector in compact housing. Based on Homeplug AV and IEEE 802.3af PoE standards, the PL-502P supports data transfer at up to 200Mbps over the existing household power circuit and provides a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port with up to 15 watts of inline power over UTP cable respectively, allows users to extend a local area network by simply plugging the PLC adapter with built-in PoE into a wall power outlet. It is ideal for powering PoE powered devices and transmitting Ethernet data in home or small office environments where only a power outlet but no network connection is available.
    A New Level of Surveillance and Wireless Networking for Smart Homes
    Featuring high-speed backbone connection through electrical power lines and carrying both data and PoE power over its RJ45 port simultaneously, the PL-502P helps users to utilize just power outlets and one Ethernet cable to easily deploy a network of IP surveillance, wireless internet access or voice over IP system in less than a minute. The PL-502P turns every power outlet into a PoE network connection, taking home surveillance or wireless networking to the next level.
    Quick and Easy Cabling for PoE Network Deployment
    Complying with IEEE 802.3af PoE standard, the PL-502P allows users to flexibly deploy standard and low powered devices to transfer data and power simultaneously through one Ethernet cable for up to 100 meters. The PL-502P frees the deployment of any 802.3af PoE compliant PD equipment from restrictions of power outlet locations and the additional AC wiring. It thus reduces cables and eliminates the need for extra electrical wires in the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place, and most of all, it reduces installation time and total cost.
    Highly Compatible and Secure Home Network
    The PL-502P is compliant with IEEE 1901 and HomplugAV standards, allowing to be paired up with any PLANET PL-series powerline products or other suppliers’ Homeplug AV equipment, creating a safe and secure home network environment that delivers quick and convenient access up to 300 meters over existing electrical wiring.
    Plug and Play Installation
    The PL-502P and PLANET powerline adapters all have a configuration push button for a convenient way of creating a secure HomePlug network without the need to use software. Simply by pushing the button on the PL-502P, users can easily set up a hassle-free secure powerline network within minutes. It also provides 128-bit AES encryption for network security and data protection.
    All-in-One and Compact Size Design
    With concepts of “easy to install”, “plug and play” and “simple troubleshooting” for general users, the PL-502P is an all-in-one designed Powerline plus PoE port with internal power supply in a compact-sized housing. Installation is as easy as plugging into a wall power socket and connecting the Ethernet cable; the PL-502P is ready to provide high-speed network communication and PoE injector functions simultaneously.
  • Applications
  • The PL-502P allows you to connect instantly to Access Points, IP Cameras or VoIP phones that support PoE standard by using the same LAN UTP cable for both network data and power. In general, the regular powerline adapter is connected to the home xDSL router to share the connectivity to wireless or VoIP network. The PL-502P thus brings users much more convenience that it can connect to any PoE PD equipment in and around the house to easily construct the home network.
    Ideal Solution for SOHO Securing IP Surveillance Infrastructure
    For SOHO/Home surveillance network, the regular powerline adapter is connected to your NVR (network video recorder) or monitor station, and the PL-502P, connected to your PoE IP camera, can be placed in a remote area. Users can install multiple PL-502P adapters in and around the house to quickly and safely build a security system.
