Technology Hub. Extend the Advantages of the Ethernet-The American-made Ethernet Extender 865 with PoE+ from Ethernet Extension Experts addresses the problem with long-range IP-based security deployments such as IP cameras and WiFi Access Points. With the Ethernet's distance limitation of just 328 feet, rather than spending thousands of dollars to install fiber or multiple Ethernet bridges/repeaters, an inexpensive solution is for a dealer or integrator to purchase an 865 kit. Send data, voice and power (up to 24V) all the way out to 3,500 ft./1,067m. In addition, the 865 performs on the often abundant, yet underutilized, Telco copper wiring or category rated structured cabling. This saves dealers and integrators infrastructure, administration and security costs thereby enabling them to offer large-scale security solutions at a lower price. The 865 Ethernet Extender Kit with PoE+ includes two LRE units, a 60W-56VDC high-power injector, two 10 foot Ethernet patch cords, a country-specific wall power adapter and an installation manual.
