POE Fiber Media Converters Introduction

POE (Power over Ethernet) products including the 10/100M PoE media converters, 10/100/1000M Gigabit PoE media converters, POE Switches. This full line of features rich Power-over-Ethernet media converters transparently connect copper to fiber while providing power over Ethernet to standard based POE compliant devices such as IP cameras, VoIP phones and wireless access points. These solutions take PoE beyond the 100 meters distance that has traditionally limited power over Ethernet installations.

PoE media converters combine ower and data on one cable, and connects to a network devices through an RJ45 port that injects the power from power sourcing equipment such as a PoE switch or midspan PoE injhectors. The PoE media converters provides a flexible and convenient means of powering devices that are located in our-of-the-way locations, and saving money by eliminating the expense and difficulty of direct electrical wiring.

PoE Ethernet to Fiber Converters provide an economical path to extend the distance of an existing copper network with fiber cabling. According to the TIA/EIA 568-5-A standard for category 5e cable, the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meter, and PoE power injector do not increase the distance of the date link. To overcome the distance and bandwidth limitation of UTP cabling, fiber optic cabling is the best solutions, by using the POE media converters, the fiber is converts to copper and sends DC power to the PoE compliant devices over the UTP cabling.

How POE Media Converter Work
PoE schematic that appears at right (view a larger version here), an Ethernet switch with RJ45 snagless connector port resides in a control room or data closet. The copper UTP cabling is converted to fiber with a standard media converter. The fiber is run a long distance to the PoE media converter located near a convenient AC or DC power source, where it converts the fiber back to copper UTP. The PoE media converter also functions as a power-sourcing mini switch, and injects PoE (DC power) over the UTP cable. At the other end of the UTP cable is the IP camera, located up to 100 meters away from the PoE media converter.

FiberStore PoE media converter combines data received over a fiber optic link with48VDC power; providing power to Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) Power Devices (PD)over unshielded twisted pair cable. The PoE converter is a Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) and is fully compatible with Powered Devices (PD) that comply with the IEEE802.3af: 2003 standard. The converter also includes a PD signature sensing and power monitoring features per the IEEE 802.3af standard.
