Hikvision launches powerful PoE for IP video surveillance cameras
Hikvision, a world-leading supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has announced that it can now offer up to 250 metres Power over Ethernet (PoE) for a number of cameras in its IP security camera range.
The company said it has identified that many IP systems are designed where the cameras and Network Video Recorders are more than 100 metres apart meaning that PoE can only be achieved through the use of additional switches and repeaters increasing the overall cost of the installation. With the introduction of the greater PoE distances it can now provide an even more cost effective solution for larger installations with the added benefit of simplifying the system design and installation process.
Pom Chen, Technical Manager for Hikvision UK & Ireland said:
“With over 4000 R&D employees Hikvision is constantly looking at innovative ways to improve our solutions for professional security installers, system integrators and their end-users. The introduction of 250 metre Power over Ethernet is just one of many steps we are taking in 2017.”
