The Veracity Highwire VHW-HWPO is a single Ethernet over co-axial cable device, similar to the standard VHW-HW Highwire unit but with a Power over Ethernet (PoE) output.

Used in pairs, each Highwire device has an analogue BNC connector at one end and a standard Ethernet RJ-45 connection at the other. Each Highwire unit is connected at either ends of an analogue co-axial cable providing a straight RJ-45 to RJ-45 connection over existing video cabling. This model provides a Power over Ethernet output which injects power into the outgoing Ethernet cable making installation of a PoE-enabled IP camera quick, easy and even more cost-effective.

The Highwire VHW-HWPO is simple to install. It is a passive device on the network, has no IP address details or MAC address and cannot be detected by any other devices on the network. This means that the Highwire unit needs no network configuration, simply plug into existing legacy cabling to extend your Ethernet network offering full speeds of up to 200Mbps.

Note: This device does not include a power supply. Please select one if required from the options above.

Veracity VHW-HWPO - Key benefits:

  • Provides substantial cost savings by enabling the use of existing analogue co-axial video cabling as part of the IP network infrastructure
  • With a high transfer rate of 200Mbps over co-ax the Highwire devices are suitable for multiple or megapixel IP camera systems
  • PoE connectivity allows a camera to be powered from a single Ethernet cable providing a quick, easy and cost-effective installation

Veracity VHW-HWPO - Key features:

  • Enables the use of legacy analogue co-ax cabling to save on installation costs
  • Adds Power over Ethernet output to power PoE-enabled devices. This cuts installation costs and allows a PoE-enabled IP camera to be placed in a wide range of locations, even in places where there is no means of conventional power
  • High 200Mbps transfer speed allows the use of multiple and megapixel IP cameras from a single connection
  • Works with any kind of network device including IP cameras, computers, printers, IP telephone systems etc. Undetectable on the network
  • Easy to install. The Highwire unit requires no network configuration, has no IP or MAC address
  • Will operate over a cable length of 300m max. Full speed of 200Mbps is achievable at 200m or less
  • Auto adapts. Where cable length, quality or interference prevents full rate operation (200Mbps) the device will auto-adapt lowering the total bandwidth as necessary

Veracity VHW-HWPO - Typical applications:

  • Can be used to provide significant cost savings when migrating from a legacy analogue CCTV system to a fully digital IP CCTV solution. Will transform existing analogue co-axial cabling allowing it to become part of an IP-based digital network/li>
