Veracity – Highwire Ethernet Over Coax Device (single unit)

The Veracity ethernet over coax device turns any existing analogue video cable (coax) into a fast ethernet connection. This allows an IP camera to replace an existing analogue CCTV camera, without installation of any new cabling. It is especially suited to mega-pixel network camera applications or even multiple network cameras as it supports high data rates. IP Video: Reuse legacy cable when upgrading from analog to IP security. Long range networking: Use HIGHWIRE as a cost-effective means to deploy network connections beyond 100 metres – for example a buried RG-11 cable can be used to deliver a network connection between buildings 500 metres apart. Transportation: HIGHWIRE can be used on legacy coaxial cables found in rail transport or elsewhere, and its universal power input makes it well-suited to low-voltage installations.

Coaxial cable will coil and bend properly, unlike Cat 5 cable, so HIGHWIRE provides an ideal means to provide network access to elevator carriages, for VoIP, security, lift panel and other devices. Anywhere there’s coax! HIGHWIRE has been deployed over all types of video cable, radar, TV antenna and satellite downlinks, armored steel cables, you name it. 50 ohm coax or cables of other impedance can normally be used without any modification to the unit.
