Signamax® Fiber-to-PoE Media Converter/Power Injector

Ensures No Loss of Network Resources Over Long Distances


What's special about this media convertor?

  • Introduces power at the end of long fiber runs; this way, no data integrity is lost and remote PoE devices get power and network connection.
  • Provides a full 25.5 watts of power; compatible with 802.3at and 802.3af
  • Accepts singlemode and multimode (62.5µm/50µm) cable through an SFP module of your choosing.
  • Supports 9.6kb jumbo frames for superior network performance.
  • Ideal for powering remote security cameras, switches, wireless access points and more.
  • RoHS CompliantTAA Compilant

Fiber optic cabling cannot carry power but it can carry data over very long distances without significant signal loss. Copper cabling is just the opposite. This fiber-to-PoE media converter provides a much needed unification of these cables. It saves the cost and trouble of the many extenders, amplifiers, and huge spools of cabling you would need to run PoE Ethernet over distances up to 10 km (singlemode). This unit takes over at the end of the fiber run, adding power and continuing the data up to 10 m (300 ft.). It's perfect for remote IP cameras, Ethernet switches WAPs, and other PoE network devices.
