Product Description

The Etherstretch™ EL1500UW IP video network extender-PoE Inserter system is another of the IP Video Transmission Solutions from Nitek. The System includes a Receiver, Transmitter and a NEMA 4X rated enclosure (WP1325) to house the Transmitter unit. The system transmits IP devices and other network devices over category cables, well beyond standard network limitations. The EL1500UW Ethernet Extender System can quickly become a high speed network communication & PoE path. When operating over standard category cables, EL1500UW network extender system can operate for distances of up to 600 meters (1968 feet). The EL1500UW weatherproof Transmitter enclosure makes it possible to take the network outdoors to devices located in hostile environments. The EL1500UW Network Extender requires very little installation time & absolutely no set up or configuration. The EL1500UW network extender Transmitter and Receiver are transparent to the network and have no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect your network devices to the network ports of the transmitter and receiver along with existing cabling and the system begins communicating. LED indicators show the status of network communication and PoE power.

When connected to a PoE switch, power from the switch is used as the power source for the connected EL1500UW Receiver. In applications where network switches are not PoE capable, an optional power Inserter (IP1054 sold separately) can be used to insert power to the EL1500UW Receiver. The power is sent from the Receiver over the UTP cables to the Transmitter. The Transmitter uses PoE as its power source and powers the connected PoE network device as well. The EL1500UW network extender system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow.
