Veracity S New Highwire Powerstar Quad Boosts your Ip Camera Options When Usinga Single Coax Cable, Enabling You to Generate Greater Coverage from your Legacycoax By Connecting 1-4 Cameras, Or POE/Non-POE Devices, to one Cable.
Connect up to four IP cameras with HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad over an existing coax cable
HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad uses existing coax cabling as a reliable Ethernet network connection and is very easy to use and fast to install. Ethernet Over Coax
HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad's unique ultra low-power design and efficient power delivery enables long range Ethernet over coax. It works even over the lowest grade cable, such as the highresistance, copper-clad steel (CCS) types found in many legacy installations. This means that legacy coax upgrades can be planned with confidence, while a quick check of the SafeView™ power level display reaffirms that the device connections will continue to be reliable, whatever the cable used.
For predictable network operation with no restrictions, HIGHWIRE technology delivers a full 200Mbit/s of bandwidth at 300m (1000 ft) of RG-59 or 500m (1600 ft) of RG-11 coax. For full information on POE-over- Coax™ distances achievable, please refer to the Range Table in the HIGHWIRE Powerstar datasheet or on the Veracity website. For POE power budget and power supply options, see the POE Power Budget Table opposite.
HIGHWIRE Powerstar QUAD
The QUAD variant of HIGHWIRE is designed for the camera end of the coax and, with an integrated four-port POE switch, enables connection of up to four IP cameras over a single coax. With no need to configure IP addresses, set DIP switches, or make awkward measurements and calculations, installing HIGHWIRE Powerstar QUAD is simple. The Base end of the coax is driven by single-channel, 4-channel or 8-channel HIGHWIRE Powerstar Base unit. The QUAD unit can be powered either by POE over coax, delivering a maximum total POE power budget of 25 watts, or by one of the optional local PSUs, delivering 40 or 78 watts. HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad features Veracity's unique SafeView™ display, to provide IP camera installers with an instant and very easy-to-understand confirmation of correct operation from either end of the cable.
HIGHWIRE Powerstar Quad allows one analogue camera to be replaced with four IP cameras
POE over Coax or Local Power
In the simplest implementation (shown below left) the BASE unit receives power from a standard POE switch or Veracity's 57V DC PSU and transmits POE over the coax. The QUAD unit receives this power and delivers up to 25 watts shared between up to four IP cameras. No external power cabling is required, and all detection and setup occurs automatically. For higher POE power budgets, an optional Veracity 57V DC PSU may be used to power the QUAD locally at the camera end (shown below right) delivering 40 watts or 78 watts depending on PSU model. See POE budget table for details
