Fiber + Power Solution for Outdoor PoE Devices
Overcome PoE limitations with the next-generation FiberPoE™, model F-POE-G2. The FiberPoE Gen 2 is a low‑cost solution for outdoor deployments that require long-distance runs to reach the PoE device. Deployments with the FiberPoE Gen 2 provide significant EMI and ESD protection over typical PoE installations. The FiberPoE Gen 2 also features a durable, weatherproof form factor and enhanced surge protection.
Separate Data and Power Transport:
PoE is ideal for indoor or short-run installations. However, for outdoor, long-distance installations, PoE becomes vulnerable to EMI and is limited to 100 meters with correlated power loss. With the FiberPoE Gen 2, data and power are transported on separate cables to greatly improve data integrity and enable much longer cable runs.
The FiberPoE Gen 2 provides Gigabit bi‑directional data transport between twisted-pair Ethernet cable and fiber optic cable, and injects DC power to the Ethernet cable for passive PoE. Use one FiberPoE Gen 2 device as an Fiber‑to‑Ethernet Converter, or a pair of FiberPoE Gen 2 devices to create a Fiber Bridge.
Enhanced Surge Protection:
Featuring a built-in high-current Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) for the DC terminal block and PoE port, the FiberPoE Gen 2 delivers enhanced surge protection. The added GDT support effectively protects against lightning and other power surges.
Fiber Optic Data Transport:
Using fiber optic cable for data transport significantly reduces electrostatic discharge (ESD) failures and electromagnetic interference (EMI). Data integrity is also sustained in runs beyond 100 meters, the limit of Ethernet over twisted‑pair cable.
The FiberPoE Gen 2 supports a 1G SFP module and 24V or 50V power from a DC power cable or PoE cable.
