IPOE-E172 Industrial 1-Port Ultra PoE to 2-Port 802.3bt/at Gigabit PoE Extender

5-7 Days IPOE-E172 Industrial 1-Port Ultra PoE to 2-Port 802.3bt/at Gigabit PoE Extender

Ultra PoE Solution for Breaking RJ45 100m Limitation

The Planet IPOE-E172 is an industrial IP63-rated 1-port Ultra PoE to 2-port 802.3bt/at Gigabit PoE Extender designed for point to multipoint PoE application. The IPOE-E172 can obtain a maximum of 95-watt PoE power from ultra PoE input port and supplies a maximum of 60-watt PoE power budget for 2 x PoE output ports, extending both the Gigabit Ethernet Data and IEEE 802.3bt/802.3at Power over Ethernet over the UTP cable. The IPOE-E172 provides a simple solution for adding PoE ports without running more cabling and achieves more flexible network applications without requiring an external power adapter.

Weather-proof RJ45 Ethernet Connector and Shielded Plug

The IPOE-E172 is ideal for installing an extended range of outdoor PoE devices such as outdoor PoE wireless access points, outdoor PoE IP cameras, outdoor PoE IP intercoms and much more. The IPOE-E172 is equipped with 3-port 10/100/1000BASE-T auto-negotiation weather-proof RJ45 connectors and 3 shielded RJ45 plugs for direct attach applications. These shielded RJ45 plugs can make the general UTP cable weather-proof. When connected to the weather-proof RJ45 connector, it provides tight and strong connection, and ensures it comes with the industrial protection rating of IP63 capable of withstanding humidity, dirt, dust, shock, vibrations, heat and cold.

Environmentally Hardened Design

With industrial-level IP63-rated aluminum case, the IPOE-E172 provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference, and is able to protect itself from dust and water ingress and to operate under the temperature range from -40 to 75 degrees C. All these features ensure the highest level of reliability for mission-critical applications in any difficult environment.

Intelligent PoE Power Budget Alert

The IPOE-E172 helps users to monitor the current status of PoE power usage easily via its advanced LED indication, which is called “Budget Alert” on the front panel of the IPOE-E172. When the PoE output power is reaches 50 watts, this Budget Alert LED will light up.

Plug and Play, and Easy Cabling Installation

The IPOE-E172 is quite easy to be installed by simply Plug and Play. It is used between a power source equipment (PSE) and a powered device (PD). The IPOE-E172 injects power to the PD without affecting the data transmission performance. The IPOE-E172 offers a cost-effective and quick solution to doubling the standard range of PoE from 100 to 200 meters. The IPOE-E172 is designed in a compact box containing three RJ45 ports, of which one "PoE IN" port functions as PoE (Data and Power) input and the other two "PoE OUT" ports on the other side function as PoE (Data and Power) output. The "PoE OUT" port is also the power injector that transmits DC voltage over the Cat5/5e/6 cable and transfers data and power simultaneously between the PSE and PD.

One Power Sourcing for Multi Powered Devices Solution

To achieve the benefits of IP surveillance and the long-distance IP camera distribution, PLANET IPOE-E172 is quite a useful device for users who have most of their network already set up, and wish to expand network communications and overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations where traditional networking does not allow.

The IPOE-E172 industrial 1-port ultra PoE to 2-port 802.3bt/at Gigabit PoE Extender, powered by a PSE over standard RJ45 cable, requires very little installation time and does not require any additional setup or programming. The ultra PoE injector port of the PSE supplies IEEE 802.3bt PoE power to the IPOE-E172 and then the IPOE-E172 converts the power for 2 powered devices that are IEEE 802.3af/at PoE standard compliant, meaning any additional power adapter for IP cameras and wireless access points is not necessary.
