Fibre optic media converters simply convert the electrical network signals from Cat5e or better cabling used in Ethernet local area networks (LAN), to optical signals used in fibre optic based networks. Optical networks are able to transmit their signals further, faster and are immune to interference from outside sources such as mains electric cables.
The PoE converter adds to this functionality by providing power via the RJ45 port to a connected, PoE capable, device when powered via the converter’s mains power connector.
The Advance PoE (15.4W) Gigabit SFP Media Converter is a compact, unmanaged converter ideally suited to low power applications such as static IP cameras.
