Overview of the Veracity Highwire Powerstar VHW-HWPS-B8-LL (base unit)
Call for availability prior to ordering
The Veracity VHW-HWPS-B8-LL is an 8-channel base unit that, when combined with Veracity VHW-HWPS-C client units, will allow users to power a total of eight IP cameras over existing coaxial cabling. It offers the same capabilities as the Highwire Powerstar Base 8, with the helpful addition of Veracity's LINKLOCK technology.
By constantly monitoring the Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connection and data transmissions, LINKLOCK technology detects disconnection/reconnection or tampering throughout any part of the cabling between the Base unit and the IP camera. Suitable for externally mounted IP cameras, LINKLOCK will disconnect power and data per-channel if any interruptions are detected - providing a secure barrier against unauthorised access into your network.
This unit provides a cost-effective and secure solution for delivering PoE - without the need of new cabling or a local power source. Requiring one main switch port or four network ports when rack-mounted, this unit is capable of delivering up to 200Mbit/s of bandwidth and power-over-coax at up to 300m (RG-59) or 500m (RG-11).
