Axis Power over Ethernet midspans & splitters
Network video without the need for power outlets
Power over Ethernet (PoE) offers an easy, fast and cost-effective solution for supplying power to network video products without the need to install power outlets and electrical cabling. Simply connect the Axis PoE midspans and PoE splitters to the network, and the network video products are supplied with power.
Axis PoE midspans provide power (max. 15.4 W per port) over Ethernet cables to network video products with built-in PoE support. For a network video product without built-in PoE support, a PoE splitter must be used to separate power and data coming over the network cable.
The PoE products enable network cameras and video encoders to be installed in areas where traditional power cabling and outlets are unavailable or difficult to install. Installations are made easier and costs are reduced.
Axis PoE midspans and PoE splitters are IEEE 802.3af compliant, which ensures compatibility with all Axis products that have built-in support for PoE.
For network cameras such as PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) and PTZ dome cameras that require higher power than what PoE products can provide, High PoE midspans and splitters are available. See Axis High Power over Ethernet midspan and splitters datasheet.
