Axis High Power over Ethernet midspan and splitters offer an easy, fast and cost-effective solution for powering network video products - specifically PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) and PTZ dome network cameras - without the need to install power outlets and electrical cabling.
Axis High Power over Ethernet (High PoE) midspan and splitters enable Axis network video products with high power consumption (up to 20 W) to receive data and power over the same Ethernet cable.
The High PoE products make it easier to install network video products in areas where power cabling and outlets are unavailable. Installation costs are, thereby, reduced.
The midspan and splitters conform to the IEEE 802.3at pre-standard for powering devices with high power requirements on a network. The midspan is also IEEE 802.3af compliant, which means that it works with all Axis network video products with built-in PoE support.
The function of a midspan is to inject power into a network cable. A splitter, which separates data and power coming over an Ethernet cable, is used for a network video product without built-in support for PoE.
