Replacing Outdoor Analog Cameras With IP Cameras Over Coax 

Installing CCTV cameras outdoors is not uncommon. Replacing traditional analog cameras can be quite challenging due to the cable distance limitations used in standard networking practices. A perfect solution to replacing an outdoor analog camera with an outdoor IP camera is to use the pre-existing coaxial cable that is presently installed. An outdoor rated IP video over coax network extender and PoE Inserter is part of the EtherStretch™ product line. The outdoor rate IP camera over coax system includes a receiver, transmitter, and a NEMA4X rated enclosure to house the transmitter. The Ethernet over coax system transmits IP cameras over coax and can quickly turn any outdoor analog cameras into and outdoor IP camera using an ordinary RG59U coaxial cable as its high speed network communication & PoE path. When operating over RG59U coaxial cable, the coax network extender system can operate for distances of up to 500 meters (1,640 feet). The coax Ethernet extender system consists of a weatherproof enclosure which houses the transmitter and also a receiver, which requires very little installation time & absolutely no set up or configuration. The outdoor Ethernet over coax network extenders transmitters and receivers are transparent to the network and have no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect your network devices to the network ports of the EtherStretch™ outdoor rated IP cameras over coax transmitter and receiver along with existing cabling and the system begins communicating. LED indicators show the status of network communication in addition to the PoE power status.

When connected to a PoE switch, power from the switch is used as the power source for the connected IP Ethernet over coax receiver. In applications where network switches are not PoE capable, an optional PoE inserter can be used to insert power to the IP camera over coax receiver. The power is sent from the receiver over the coax to the transmitter which is housed in the NEMA4X enclosure. The EtherStretch™ transmitter uses PoE as its power source and powers the connected PoE network device as well. The coax network extender system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow. As Shown in the example below.

 IP Over Coax Advantages 

  • Reduced Labor Cost - Utilizing the exsisting coaxial cable reduces the amount of labor needed to install the new IP CCTV video system.
  • Extended Cable Distance - Using Ethernet over Coax extenders allows you to run 100Mbps up to (500 meters) 1,640ft.
  • Less Network Hardware Needed - In traditional networking IDF closets are needed every 100 meters and house network switches.
  • Transmits PoE Plus 802.3AT which eliminates the need for PoE inserters.
  • Transparent to the network - Simply plug and play, no set up or configuration required.
  • Can be used for indoor or outdoor cameras.
  • transmitts up to 100mbps up to 1,640 feet.
