Axis High Power over Ethernet midspans 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) midspans and splitters enable Axis network video products 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 thus reduced.
The midspans and splitters conform to the IEEE 802.3at for powering devices with high power requirements on a network. The midspans are also IEEE 802.3af compliant, which means that they can be used 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.
