The Etherstretch™ EL1500CWS Outdoor Ethernet over Coax network extender-PoE Inserter with Surge Suppression is another of the IP Video Transmission Solutions from NITEK. The System includes a receiver, transmitter, surge suppression unit and a NEMA4X rated enclosure to house the transmitter and surge units. The system transmits Ethernet IP cameras over coax and can quickly turn any ordinary RG59U coaxial cable into a high speed network communication & PoE path.
When operating over RG59U coaxial cable, the Ethernet over coax network extender system can operate for distances of up to 500 meters (1,640 feet). The EL1500CWS coax ethernet extender system consists of a weatherproof enclosure which houses the transmitter and also a receiver, which requires very little installation time & absolutely no set up or configuration. The The EL1500CW ethernet over coax network extenders transmitter and receiver are transparent to the network and have no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect your network devices to the network ports of the transmitter and receiver along with existing cabling and the system begins communicating. LED indicators show the status of network communication and PoE power.
When connected to a PoE switch, power from the switch is used as the power source for the connected EL1500CWS receiver. In applications where network switches are not PoE capable, an optional power Inserter (IP1054 sold separately) can be used to insert power to the EL1500CWS receiver. The power is sent from the receiver over the coax to the transmitter. The transmitter uses PoE as its power source and powers the connected PoE network device as well. The EL1500CWS coax network extender system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow.
