The Etherstretch™ ER8500U IP video multi-port network extender with Gigabit PoE Switch is a Receiver unit that operates with from 1 to 8 ET1500U Transmitter units (sold separately). ER8500U IP ethernet network extender-PoE Inserter (EtherStretch) is another of the IP Video Transmission Solutions from NITEK that can quickly turn any ordinary 4 pair category network cables into a high speed network communication & PoE path. When operating over a 4 pair category network cable, extended distances of up to 600 meters (1,960 feet) can be achieved. The ER8500U ethernet extender receiver along with the ET1500U transmitters require very little installation time & absolutely no set up or configuration. The System is transparent to the network and has no IP or MAC addressing. Simply connect your network devices to the network ports of the transmitter and receiver along with existing cabling and the system begins communicating. LED indicators show the status of network communication and PoE power.This Etherstretch solution allows for the utilization of existing UTP infrastructure to both transmit IP cameras and other network devices and to power them over the network as well.
An internal power supply in the ER8500U Receiver provides PoE to the system. The Etherstretch network extender system extends network communications to overcome cable distance limitations offering connections to devices in locations traditional networking does not allow.
