PoE poweredmedia converters not only allow users to extend an Ethernet signal over fiber optic cable but also provide power to remote devices such as IP security cameras, wireless access points, VoIP phones, and other networking equipment. Our PoE media converters function as PSE devices, which stands for 'Power Source Equipment' technology. This functionality is designed to deliver power to the powered devices (PDS) through the network cable. We offer PSE PoE converters as 10/100/1000Base devices, available in both commercial and industrial formats.
The diagram below illustrates how the PoE media converter facilitates a connection from a Fiber Switch to an IP security camera. The media converter converts the fiber coming to it from the switch using an SFP module. The converter is placed near a convenient AC or DC power source. After the fiber to Ethernet conversion is performed, the cat5 or cat6 cable (UTP) carries both data and power to the security camera. When the link is completed, the security camera signal is secure using fiber optic conversion and is successfully powered by the PoE media converter, therefore making the use of an external power supply unnecessary.
How to choose the right PoE Media Converter?
Our PoE fiber media converters are fiber to copper linking devices that transfer data in the form of light pulses over a fiber optic cable. At the same time, they can transfer power to various powered (PD) devices connected to the network, such as IP cameras, IP phones, wireless access points etc. Fiber to Ethernet media converters are available in various configurations and capacities with or without PoE. At times, it may be challenging to select the device for your project. Here are some pointers that may be helpful when selecting media converters with PoE functionality:
The type of media converter and whether you require PoE would depend on the application requirement, size of the network, geographical areas it encompasses, and more. PoE is especially essential if your network is connected to a surveillance system, wherein the cameras are placed in a remote outdoor area, where power sources are not readily available.
You would require PoE media converters with fiber conversion in situations where a user is merging fiber optics with your existing legacy network.
Depending on the type of network you have, decide on the number of ports you require. In case of fiber media converter ports, there is an RJ45 Ethernet port and an SFP port available. If more Ethernet or Fiber ports are necessary, it would be beneficial to consider a PoE Switch.
Data rate is also an important factor to be considered. The most common data rates are 10/100mbps and 10/100/1000mbps. The speed and signal strength do not vary much in case of fiber optics, unlike Ethernet networks.
Depending on the transmission distance, you can choose single mode or multimode media converters. Single mode is preferred for long distances.
If you have a harsh operating environment, opt for an industrial media converter with PoE. These are designed to function at elevated temperatures or extremely cold temperatures and are resistant to various industrial and environmental parameters.
