ComNet Europe has expanded its Ethernet product line by introducing a 1000FX fibre-optic media converter with Power over Ethernet (PoE). The CNGE2MCPOE provides a PoE function to those POE compatible peripheral devices. This device supports the latest IEEE 802.3 at PoE standard for use as power sourcing equipment (PSE), supplying up to 25 Watts of power. Designed for use in harsh environments, these products allow 10/100/1000TX Ethernet data to be transmitted optically over either multimode or single mode optical fibre, by application-specific, optional SFP modules.
According to Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe MD, “Power over Ethernet is becoming a very desirable feature. Throughout the market we are seeing more and more devices such as IP cameras and other peripheral devices that are POE powered. With this feature, and with the desire of many users to exceed the existing 100 metre transmission distance limitation of CAT-5e cabling, ComNet now offers a PoE solution where the transmission distance may be significantly extended, with no loss of bandwidth. The ComNet CNGE2MCPOE solves this challenge.”
