KBC Networks, the developer of industrial transmission equipment for IP and HD systems, recently introduced its new and robust eCopper product line featuring Ethernet over Coax (EoC) and Ethernet over UTP (EoU) transmission in a multi-port design perfect for using existing copper cable infrastructure to accommodate IP cameras.
This simple and innovative product family offers a cost-effective way to connect the latest in IP cameras using existing coax or copper wiring to a remote monitoring station. Through the copper infrastructure, eCopper powers both its transmitter and remote cameras, eliminating the need for any additional power source at the camera site.
eCopper also provides Power over Coax (PoC) management, giving system operators the ability to remotely turn each port’s power on and off from the central monitoring location. This PoC feature is a plug-and-play solution with a user-friendly GUI affording easy set-up and system maintenance.
“Our eCopper products offer integrators an excellent alternative to rewiring an entire location when they upgrade to IP cameras,” said Domenic Isola, director of strategic accounts for KBC Networks. “It makes retrofitting affordable and adds power and functionality while using existing infrastructure.”
The eCopper product line offers a single-channel transmitter and single, 4, 8 and 16-channel receivers, available for both EoC and EoU transmission. The single-channel transmitter and receiver can be wall-mounted while the four-channel variant offers a wall or DIN rail mount. The eight and 16-channel receivers come as a 1 U high rack mount.
