OUTREACH Lite XT Ethernet extenders are ideal for IP video applications, as they eliminate the one disadvantage that network cameras have compared to older analogue cameras: the limited cable length.
As POE is becoming universal in digital video installations, Cat 5 cable extension is as simple as connecting an OUTREACH Lite XT wherever it is needed.
OUTREACH Lite XT can also be used to upgrade legacy twisted-pair video installations to IP with POE (Outreach MAX), where the Cat 5 infrastructure for a network is already in place, but run lengths exceed the 100 meter limit for Ethernet.
PTZ cameras, heater/blower units and door interlocks are all examples of products that are adopting the extended-power POE Plus standard that OUTREACH Max XT also supports.
Like IP cameras, wireless access points (WAPs) are ideally suited to POE as they must be positioned optimally in locations that are often inaccessible or remote. Using OUTREACH Max XT, a WAP - or Bluetooth access point or RFID reader - can be located just where it is needed for optimal coverage.
High-power radios and 802.11n APs can take advantage of the POE Plus power which OUTREACH Max XT supports.
Extending non-POE networks
OUTREACH Max XT can be used in combination with OUTREACH Lite XT to extend networks without POE from 300 meters to over 2 kilometers.
