The Etherstretch Lyte™ ER8200C IP video over coax multi-port network extenderis a receiver unit that operates with from 1 to 8 ET1243C Transmitter units (sold separately). The Etherstretch Lyte™ is another IP video transmission solution from NITEK. This economical solution allows for the utilization of existing coaxial infrastructure to both transmit IP data from cameras and other network devices and also power them over the coax.
The ER8200C receiver and ET1243C units comprise a system which can transmit 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 coax network extender system can operate for distances of up to 350 meters (1,150 feet). The ER8200C coax receiver along with the ET1243C transmitters require very little installation and set time. The system is transparent to the network and has no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect 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.
The ER8200C receiver connects to a PoE network switch to provide PoE to the system. Network switches are not provided by Nitek and are a separate component needed to complete the system. The Etherstretch Lyte, IP extender "over-coax" system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow.
