Power over Ethernet greatly simplifies the deployment of IP cameras, wireless access points, and other equipment whose location is critical for performance. However, cable lengths in Ethernet networks are limited to 100 meters, which is a serious restriction in many installations. OUTREACH Max enables installers to overcome this limitation.
Fitting OUTREACH Max is simple because no set-up is required. Its only connections are two RJ45 network ports, both of which immediately self-configure for operation. PoE power is automatically transferred between connected equipment. And because OUTREACH Max is also PoE-powered, no local power supply connection is needed. OUTREACH Max can be located anywhere along the network cable, as long as no single length of cable is greater than 100 meters.
If PoE and network extension beyond 200 meters is required, more than one OUTREACH Max may be installed in series. The maximum extension distance depends on how much power is required and which PoE source is used.
Because OUTREACH Max simply restores the network connection every 100 meters, the full bandwidth of 100 BASE-T Ethernet is maintained across the entire link. This maximizes performance and transparency, with no risk of a reduced or unpredictable bandwidth, even at distances of several hundred meters.
