Power Over Coaxial Extender LR1002

  • 1*10/100 Mbps Base-TX + 1*BNC
  • RG59 coaxial cable: 400m/100 Mbps, 1000m/10 Mbps
  • High level lightning protection
  • -30°C~+65°C

Versatile Installations

For surveillance of large space such as big warehouse, parks, garden and outdoor parking, camera locations are dispersed and far from the control center, usually longer than 100 meters. Conventional approach is to add repeater devices to extend the transmission distance. However, this would increase cost of equipment and installation. Power supply and junction box will be required to install the repeater. It also makes it harder to maintain and increases the risk of product failure. Alternately, fiber optic transceiver for long-distance transmission is also available. However, fiber optic cable has to be installed and it requires a power supply at the camera side to power the fiber optic transceiver as well as the camera. This is quite a big problem if you have a few installation points over a large space. Dahua ePoE IP system offer a very simple and effective solution. Dahua ePoE supports up to 800 meters via the traditional Cat5 ethernet cable. It greatly simplifies the network construction as only one cable is required to connect from the front-end to the back-end devices, which results in higher reliability and lower installation and maintenance costs of the whole system.

Dahua ePoE technology offer a new way to accomplish long distance transmission between IP camera and network switch

Analog To IP Surveillance Systems

For migration of analog surveillance system to IP, reusing existing coaxial cable can largely reduce the installation cost. A proper solution needs to address 3 issues: adapt the IP video signal and RJ45 connection to coaxial cable, support the length of coaxial cable as it is, transmit power over coaxial cable. Dahua ePoE IP system addresses all of them and makes it easy to reuse existing coaxial cable to run IP video. Power over Coaxial Extender LR1002 connects to Ethernet port of IP camera or network switch on the one end and connects to BNC connector of coaxial cable on the other end, Dahua ePoE IP system supports transmission up to 1,000 meters over RG59 coaxial cable at 10Mbit/s bandwidth, and delivers PoE power to the IP camera. This is a simple and effective solution that delivers seamless plug and play solution. It can significantly reduce the cost of analog to IP migration.

Long Distance Transmission

The ePoE technology of Dahua adopts advanced 2D-PAM3 coding modulation from physical layer, and realizes full duplex transmission over 800 meters at the speed of 10Mbps, or 300 meters at the speed of 100Mbps via Cat5 or coaxial cable media. Dahua ePoE technology offer a new way to accomplish long distance transmission between IP camera and network switch. It allows more flexible surveillance system design, improves reliability and saves construction and wiring cost.

How Should Your Security Company Measure Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO)?
How Should Your Security Company Measure Total Cost Of Ownership (TCO)?

How much does a security system cost? We all know that total costs associated with systems are substantially higher than the “price tag.” There are many elements, tangible and intangible, that contribute to the costs of owning and operating a system. Taking a broad view and finding ways to measure these additional costs enables integrators and users to get the most value from a system at the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). However, measuring TCO can be easier said than done. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable to share the benefit of their collective expertise on the subject. Specifically, we asked: How should integrators and/or end users measure total cost of ownership (TCO) when quantifying the value of security systems?
