Overview of the Veracity Highwire Powerstar Quad

The Veracity VHW-HWPS-C4 Highwire Powerstar Quad allows an existing coax cable to be used as an Ethernet network connection for up to 4 IP devices. The unit is compatible with all Veracity Highwire Powerstar base units which supply POE power via coax or it can also be powered locally, at the camera end, using an optional PSU to provide a higher POE power budget. This provides a cost-effective installation solution when migrating from an analogue system to a digital IP system as the existing coax cabling can be kept to help reduce installation time and costs.

The unit features an integrated 4-port POE switch, it’s easy to install and requires no configuration when connecting IP devices. In addition, Veracity’s SafeView LED display enables users to instantly check connection status and available power levels from either end of the cable.

Different power methods provide flexible installation options and offer a variety of PoE budgets to help meet power requirements. A standard PoE or PoE+ switch can be connected at the base end of the coax to provide a power budget of up to 20W. Two alternative PSU’s are also available (select from the dropdown menu above) offering increased power budgets - 25W via the base end of the coax or up to 78W via the camera end. Please see the table below for a full PoE power budget breakdown.

PSU Location Power Supply PoE Budget
(to IP cameras)
Base End PoE switch 10W
Base End PoE+ switch 20W
Base End VPSU-57V-800 25W
