The broad range of Network Extenders and Repeaters available from Nitek make connecting ordinary network devices in difficult and seemingly impossible cabling scenarios possible. Network extenders are communication devices that are deployed throughout a network to share, extend or gain access to the network topology. A network extender can be deployed rapidly connecting to coax or UTP cabling to achieve cable distances up to 1600 meters (5.249 feet).
The Nitek Single- and Multi-Channel Solutions allow IP devices to transmit over coax cabling. The ethernet over coax technology allow the EtherStretch™ and EtherStretch Lyte™ systems to extend IP devices beyond cable distance limitations and acts as a PoE inserter or PoE pass through device.
The EtherStretch™ and EtherStretch Lyte™ IP over coax systems are transparent to the network and have no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect your IP devices to the network ports of the EtherStretch™ or EtherStretch Lyte™ IP over coax transmitter and receiver along with existing cabling and the system begins communicating. LED indicators show the status of IP devices and network communication in addition to the PoE power status.
Nitek has developed several Etherstretch™ Network Extender solutions. Both devices are locally fed. The network cable between Transmitter and receiver is only meant for data transmission, NO PoE. Because of this these solutions are fully licenced for use in hazardous Industry such as Offshore, Oil and Gas Industry.
Our Etherstretch™ solutions allows for the utilization of existing coax cable infrastructure to transmit data from IP cameras and other network devices over the given wire media.
Single Channel links and multi-port Ethernet switches for IP video cameras. This Layer 2 switch with a Gigabit LAN connection operates as a standard switch for all Ethernet devices up to 100 meters. When used in conjunction with the ET1500CB transmitter unit (sold separately) operating distances can be extended with 100Mbit Full Duplex up to 500 meters (1.640 feet). This makes it ideal for mixed use applications where equipment can be both under 100 meters or up to 500 meters. Being a fully functioning Layer 2 switch it easily integrates into the standard network infrastructure.
Nitek’s Fiber Media Converters are a full line of products that transparently convert copper based Ethernet to optical fiber, extending network infrastructure well beyond the limitations of standard Ethernet UTP cabling. An economical solution for connecting remote cameras, equipment, or facilities. The Fiber Media Converters are available with or without embedded Power over Ethernet (POE), in rates supporting 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet, and in models supporting most multimode and single mode connector types.
The majority of all surge-induced damage is caused by surges and spikes traveling along unprotected video, data and power lines. These surges originate from a wide variety of sources, including static charge buildup and lightning strikes. Left unprotected, video and data lines expose cameras, digital video recorders, network video storage devices, monitors, A/V components, and other network equipment to damaging electrical transients.
The Nitek range of surge protection equipment provides protection for both IP Networks and Analog Systems; including individual video, data lines, and power lines including network lines, coax cables, and more. Inserting surge protection in your video system and connecting it to earth ground prevents back-door surges from ruining your system and prevents downtime.
Nitek is the industry leader in CCTV video, data and power transmission over Unshielded Twisted Pair cable (UTP). Our line of products is the security industries broadest and most innovative, featuring single channel active and passive UTP products, multi-channel active and passive UTP hubs and the Nitek patented UTPLinks, the industries first migration path of analog and IP integration for video, power and data products over UTP cabling.
