Deploying PoE media converters is an ideal solution when devices such as IP security cameras and WiFi access points need to be installed at remote locations, miles away from the central office. The PSE-McBasic series performs a media conversion as well as provides electric current to the end-device at the remote site.
The Power Over Ethernet technology allows the media converter to be the Power Source Equipment (PSE) by distributing an electrical current across existing twisted pair data cabling. If the connected unit requires power and is 802.3af compliant, the PSE detects this and supplies power. LEDs on the PSE indicate the amount of power being supplied to the “Powered Device” (PD) as well as if the PSE is over temperature or over current or has an open circuit.
