Las Vegas , NV (April 1, 2009) â€“ Altronix's new NetWay mid-span PoE solution lets you maximize your investment in IP video surveillance. NetWay delivers greater functionality and efficiency for IP video systems in 8 and 16 port configurations that accommodate both PoE and conventional IP cameras â€“ including networked PTZs. With reliable and consistent power designed for standard network infrastructure, the new NetWay line-up also includes a single-port midspan injector, a repeater to extend the range an additional 100m (328 feet), and 15 and 30-watt adapters for conventional fixed or PTZ cameras.
â€œAltronix is known for adapting our field-proven power supply expertise to specific applications and for supplying products that are designed to target precise market needs,â€ said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. â€œIP video surveillance cameras do not need individual localized power sources with our innovative NetWay products by supplying power from a centralized rack to IP camera on network infrastructure.â€
The NetWay8 midspan PoE product provides eight PoE-compliant camera ports, rated at 15.4W maximum (compliant with IEEE 802.3af ). Two of the ports are selectable for 30W to accommodate high-current PTZ IP cameras (using the NetWay3012 adapter for each camera port). Easy plug-and-play installation enables safe and cost-effective power distribution over Cat5/5E/6 LAN infrastructures.
The NetWay16 midspan PoE product provides 16 PoE-compliant ports at 15.4W maximum (IEEE 802.3af), with four ports selectable to 30W using the NetWay3012 adapter. Contained in a 1U rack-mount chassis, NetWay16 also includes an illuminated master power switch, 115vAC input and an IEC 320 three-wire grounded detachable line cord.
The NetWay1 single port midspan injector offers a single PoE-compliant camera port and PoE shutdown option. The NetWayXT repeater extends Ethernet range an additional 100m (328 feet). The NetWay1512 adapter enables compatibility with non-PoE compliant cameras, and the NetWay3012 adapter supplies 30W to accommodate high-current IP cameras, including PTZs .
â€œVideo surveillance is operating more than ever in a networked world, and Altronix has the innovative solutions to power the network,â€ continued Mr. Forman. â€œThe technology is engineered to deliver a reliable, cost-effective and performance-enhancing solution backed by Altronix's world-renowned reputation and commitment to quality.â€
