Hikvision is now offering up to 250 metres Power over Ethernet (PoE) for a number of cameras in its IP camera range.
The company has identified that many IP systems are designed where the cameras and NVRs are more than 100 metres apart, meaning that PoE can only be achieved through the use of additional switches and repeaters. This increases the overall cost of an installation.
With the introduction of greater PoE distances, Hikvision can now provide an even more cost-effective solution for larger installations with the added benefit of simplifying the system design and installation process.
Pom Chen, technical manager for Hikvision in the UK and Ireland, said: “With over 4,000 R&D employees, Hikvision is constantly looking at innovative ways in which to improve our solutions for security installers, system integrators and end users. The introduction of 250 metre Power over Ethernet is just one of many steps we’ll be taking in 2017.”
