Using the Mx2wire+ system from Mobotix, an Ethernet network with PoE can be established using existing cables up to 500m. This means that you can utilise a two-wire cable that is no longer in use (analog telephone line, antenna cable or bell wire. for instance) to connect a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet device such as a PC, Wi-Fi, IP camera, IP telephone or IP door station without having to lay any new cables or implement any other constructional measures. An (identical) Mx2wire+ unit is required at both ends of the cable, and it automatically configures itself as either the sender or the receiver.
The significant benefit of Mx2wire+ is that, in addition to data, the power to operate PoE end devices (Power-over-Ethernet according to the IEEE 802.3af standard) can also be transferred via the two-wire cable. Mx2wire+ is delivered via PoE from a network cable that feeds in. The connected end devices are supplied with up to 13 watts via PoE. Mx2wire+ does not therefore require its own power supply, as the network distributor (switch) typically supplies power over the data cables (PoE) so that the two Mx2wire+ units as well as the standard PoE end device are supplied.
