Veracity, the leader in connectivity and transmission solutions for IP Video, will launch its latest transmission innovation – OUTREACH Max – at this year’s IFSEC.
Each OUTREACH Max, when placed between a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch or injector and a network device such as an IP camera, enables installers to extend high quality network connections by 100 metres per OUTREACH Max device up to a maximum of 800 metres extension, depending on the PoE source used.
OUTREACH Max goes further to transmit power via standard Ethernet (CAT 5) cables to all types of PoE devices including standard IEEE802.3af PoE, IEEE 802.3at ‘PoE Plus’, 4-pair and even 60 watt (or more) unclassified ‘Super’ PoE devices. Super PoE is now being used by several manufacturers of external dome cameras, for example, so that heaters and fans inside the domes can be powered via a single Ethernet cable.
Alastair McLeod, managing director, Veracity UK Limited, commented:
“Veracity is responding to the proliferation in the range of PoE classes and number of PoE devices that have been specified and installed over the last 18 months with our latest installer-led innovation OUTREACH Max. It offers installers the ability to easily extend PoE of all types out to outlying IP cameras wherever they are on the site.”
OUTREACH Max will replace OUTREACH Plus effective immediately and is available through Veracity’s usual distribution channels at a recommended retail price of £149 (+VAT).
Veracity products are available in the UK through Anixter, Norbain, Black Box, and DVS. A network of European distributors also carries the product including ADI, Norbain NL and Anixter.
