IEEE 802.3at Gigabit High Power over Ethernet Injector (Mid-Span)


  • Overview
  • PoE with High Power, Security, Stability and Easy Installation Features
    As the applications of Power over Ethernet have expanded to home users from the IT industry. PLANET has developed a new Single-Port PoE+ Injector which meets the requirements of both the IT industry and home users for high wattage output and easy installation, respectively.
    The POE-163 is a wall-mountable single-port Gigabit 802.3at PoE+ injector with internal power supply in compact housing. Carrying both Ethernet data and power simultaneously, the POE-163 helps users to utilize just one Ethernet cable to easily install and deploy IP camera, wireless AP or VoIP phone networking in environments where power outlet is hard to find.
    It offers an affordable, safe and reliable power solution for cost-conscious business and home users deploying Power over Ethernet networks.

    30-watt Power over Ethernet Capability
    The PoE in-line power following the IEEE 802.3at/af Power over Ethernet Plus standard makes the POE-163 able to deliver Gigabit speed Ethernet data and up to 30 watts of power to remote PoE compliant powered devices (PDs) over one Cat.5E/6 Ethernet cable. The POE-163 provides more flexibility in power requirement for all kinds of PDs at affordable installation costs. Designed especially for higher power required network equipment such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom) speed dome, high power outdoor AP can be powered and work normally just through a single UTP cable with PoE power injector, the POE-163.

    All-in-One and Compact Size Design
    With concepts of “Easy to install”, “Plug and Play” and “Simple troubleshooting” for business and home users, the POE-163 is an all-in-one designed single-port PoE+ injector with internal power supply. In the compact size housing, the POE-163 provides one 100-240V AC input socket on its front panel, two LEDs (System POWER and PoE ACTIVE ) on the top side and two RJ-45 ports (POE port and LAN port) on the rear panel. Simply plug in the Ethernet cables and power cord, and the POE-163 is ready to provide high speed network communication and high power PoE+ injector functions simultaneously with no need of software configuration.

    Quick and Easy Cabling Installation for PoE Network Deployment
    Complying with both 802.3af and 802.3at PoE standards, the POE-163 allows users to flexibly deploy standard and high powered devices to transfer data and power simultaneously through one Ethernet cable for up to 100 meters. The POE-163 frees the security IP camera and wireless AP deployment from restrictions of power outlet locations and the additional AC wiring. It thus reduces cables and eliminates the need for electrical outlets on the wall, ceiling or any unreachable place, and most of all, it reduces installation time.
  • Applications
  • Connecting to IEEE 802.3at/af Compliant Devices
    Because of having the capability of IEEE 802.3at/802.3af Power over Ethernet, the POE-163 can directly be connected to any IEEE 802.3at/802.3af end-nodes such as PTZ (Pan, Tilt & Zoom) network cameras, PTZ speed dome, color touch-screen Voice over IP (VoIP) telephones and multi-channel wireless LAN access points where the IEEE 802.3at/802.3af In-line Power over Ethernet port is supported.
    Installation of IEEE 802.3at Injector and Splitter
    For remote non-PoE compliant Ethernet devices to enjoy convenience of Power over Ethernet, the POE-163 and PoE Splitter operate as a pair to provide the easiest way to power your Ethernet devices which need high power input. For example, the POE-163 delivers the Ethernet digital data with power over the twisted pair cable. When connected to PLANET POE-162S (IEEE 802.3at PoE+ splitter), the POE-162S will divide the digital data and the power into two selectable DC outputs (12V DC/24V DC) to non-PoE Ethernet device. Or the POE-163 can co-work with the POE-152S (IEEE 802.3af PoE splitter) to get 5V DC/12V DC output.
    Extended Installation of IEEE 802.3at Injector and PoE
    Is 100 meter cable long enough for a wide range of IP Surveillance deployments? The answer is certainly not. To achieve the benefits of IP surveillance and also the long-distance IP camera distribution, the POE-163 and PLANET PoE Extender — POE-E201 — can be a quick and cost-effective option. In the simplest application, the PoE Extender enables a PoE IP camera to be installed up to 200 meters away from the POE-163. The POE-163 delivers PoE power over the first 100 meters to the PoE Extender over UTP cable, and then the PoE Extender forwards the Ethernet data and remaining POE power to the remote PoE IP camera.
