The Veracity VOR-ORM OUTREACH Max PoE-powered Ethernet & Power over Ethernet (PoE) Extender - 100m per unit. Cable lengths in Ethernet networks are limited to 100 meters (328 ft), which is a serious restriction for many security installations. OUTREACH Max enables installers to overcome this network limitation. Simply connecting an OUTREACH Max in line with the network cable instantly doubles the range from 100 to 200 meters (656 ft).Extend Ethernet and PoE Ethernet and PoE both restrict cable distances to 100 meters (328 feet) between network ports. However, PoE-powered devices such as IP cameras and wireless access points frequently must be located at far greater distances from the nearest network switch or power outlet.
OUTREACH Max provides an instant solution to this problem. By connecting an OUTREACH Max for every extra 100 meters of cable, both Ethernet and PoE can be extended to 200, 300, or even 800 meters (2,625 feet). Max power extension OUTREACH Max is compatible with all regular (IEEE 802.3af) PoE devices. In addition, it can be used with IEEE 802.3at PoE Plus equipment, and even non-standard or "4-pair" PoE to over 60 watts. For maximum power and range, Veracity's OUTSOURCE enhanced PoE injector may be used. The OUTSOURCE Plus enhanced PoE Plus injector is recommended for all PoE Plus applications. Max cable range OUTREACH Max's efficient design maximizes the distance PoE can be extended to, and multiple units can be connected in series for distances beyond 200 meters. Range depends on the power required, so a 25 Watt PTZ camera may be located 200 meters away using a single OUTREACH Max. Or, the cable length to a regular 5 Watt IP camera may extend up to 800 meters (2,625 feet), by fitting seven OUTREACH Maxes at 100-meter intervals.
Max reliability Because OUTREACH Max draws its own power from the PoE on the cable, all electrical power for the connected devices comes from a single PoE switch or injector, which simplifies installation and allows back-up and control of all network power. OUTREACH Max's only connections are its two Ethernet ports, and both configure automatically for link speed, duplex and crossover, to eliminate the risk of misconfiguration. Power is forwarded automatically, and issues with PoE power classes are avoided. As OUTREACH Max repeats the network connection every 100 meters, quality does not degrade. This means that the full bandwidth of 100BASE-T Ethernet (200Mbit/sec) is maintained, even over 800-meter runs. This is essential for assured transparency and predictability.
