IEEE 802.3at Power over Gigabit Ethernet Extender


Long Distance High Power PoE and Gigabit Data Extension Solution

PLANET POE-E201 is a newly-designed simple extender which extends both the Gigabit Ethernet Data and IEEE 802.3at/802.3af Power over Ethernet transmission distance over the standard 100m (328 ft.) Cat. 5/5e/6 UTP cable to 200m, 300m, 400m and the maximum 500m.

No matter how many PoE supported networking devices such as PoE IP cameras, PoE wireless access points and PoE IP phones are deployed, they are easily installed without the need of having an additional electrical outlet. However, limited by the UTP cabling, only up to 100 meters (328 ft.) of cable is used. Thus, the POE-E201 is designed as the extender to transmit both Gigabit Ethernet data and high power PoE power over another distance of 100m. By daisy-chaining multiple POE-E201s, distance can be tripled or quadrupled to meet your requirements.

With its ability to providing high power PoE and Gigabit Ethernet data extension, the POE-E201 is an ideal networking solution for service providers, campuses and public areas. It enables you to centrally manage the power easily, efficiently and cost-effectively no matter now remote the location is.

Easy Cabling Installation

The POE-E201 Gigabit high power PoE Extender is quite easy to be installed by simple plug and play. It is used between a power source equipment (PSE) and a powered device (PD). The POE-E201 injects power to the PD without affecting the data transmission performance. The POE-E201 offers a cost effective and quick solution to doubling the standard range of PoE from 100 to 200 meters. This Gigabit high power PoE Extender is designed in a compact mini box containing 2 RJ45 ports, of which the “PoE IN” port functions as PoE (Data and Power) input and the “PoE OUT” port on the other side functions as PoE (Data and Power) output. The “PoE OUT” port is also the power injector to transmit DC voltage in the Cat. 5/5e/6 cable and transfer data and power simultaneously between the PSE and PD.
