ER8500U

The ER8500U is a multi-port Ethernet switch and PoE+ extender for IP video cameras. This Layer 2 PoE+ switch with Gigabit LAN and SFP connections operates as a standard switch for all Ethernet devices up to 100 meters. When used in conjunction with the ET1500U transmitter unit (sold separately) operating distances can be extended up to 600 meters (1968 feet). This makes it ideal for mixed use applications where equipment can be both under 100 meters or up to 600 meters. It provides 802.3AT level (25.5 watts) for PoE+ powered devices up to 300 meters and greater than 802.3AF level power to 600 meters. (See PoE wattage chart for specifics) Being a fully functioning Layer 2 switch, it easily integrates into standard network infrastructure.

Description 

The ER8500U is another component of Nitek cutting edge Etherstretch™ line. Our Etherstretch™ solution allows for the utilization of existing cable infrastructure (coax or UTP) to transmit data from IP cameras and other network devices along with power to operate these networked devices over the given wire media. This unit also features web based remote monitoring and control of the system.

Using the ER8500U over any ordinary 4-pair category cable for a distance of 600 meters requires only the ET1500 transmitter to provide 100Mb per channel links and power for mega pixel cameras. The 100Mb bandwidth will easily operate even high-bandwidth IP cameras or any other Ethernet devices.

The ER8500U receiver and ET1500U transmitter require very little installation time & absolutely no set up or configuration to function. Simply connect a network device to the transmitter. LED connectivity indicators on the receiver show the status of network communication and PoE power. The ER8500U Etherstretch network extender overcomes cable distance limitations inherent in traditional networking topologies.
