Hardened 90W PoE media converter facilitates PTZ cameras, LED lights

Sept. 23, 2021
By removing the need for two devices by putting both power and data capabilities near the device that needs it, the EL2242-BT allows users to simplify PoE connectivity and offer the distance capability of fiber.

EtherWAN Systems has this month launched its latest next-generation networking product, capable of delivering 90W Power over Ethernet (PoE) to remote devices while maintaining gigabit speeds. The EL2242-BT is a hardened media converter that supports the latest IEEE 802.3bt PoE protocol.

As stated by the manufacturer:

Whether you need more control over long-distance devices such as PTZ cameras or LED lights, the EL2242-BT's 90W PoE via copper and Gigabit transfer speeds will simplify your networks while surviving harsh conditions (-40°F to 167°F.)

By removing the need for two devices by putting both power and data capabilities near the device that needs it, the EL2242-BT allows users to simplify PoE connectivity and offer the distance capability of fiber.

"PoE devices that are connected at a distance greater than 328 ft. need to use fiber," contends Jim Toepper, EtherWAN's director of marketing and products. "Since fiber cannot carry PoE, the EL2242-BT is a solution for what could previously only be accomplished with two products – a media converter and a PoE injector. The EL2242-BT not only supports legacy PoE products, but also newer power-hungry outdoor cameras and access points with 90 Watts of 802.3bt PoE support."

EtherWAN's hardened products are backed by a limited lifetime warranty, rated to operate within a -40°F to 167°F range, and built to resist vibration and electromagnetic interference at 4x the level of commercial devices. Products are also backed by complimentary US-based tech support, "allowing customers to plan their network's long-term needs, including maintenance and future growth," as noted by EtherWAN.

Further, with networking training courses available, EtherWAN provides support for integrators and installers to effectively organize and maintain networks.
