HIGHWIRE is an Ethernet to coaxial cable adapter. The adapter converts the symmetrical send/receive Ethernet signals into asymmetrical signals and then combines them to be transported over a single strand of copper. By employing a pair of Veracity Highwire VHW-HW adapters it is possible to use existing coaxial cable to transmit fully specified Ethernet signals transparently across a link of up to 500m.
Universal connections for coaxial cable, network and power, with no user intervention required, make installation fast and easy.
Auto-optimizing for all 75 Ohm coaxial cable:
280m (920ft) full-rate over video-grade RG-59 (Up to 350m depending on quality)
350m (1150ft) full-rate over RG-6
500m (1640ft) full-rate over RG-11
Auto-configuring for speed (10BASE-T or 100BASE-T) and duplex
Use with Cat 5, Cat 5e or Cat 6 patch or crossover cables
Auto type and polarity detection with detachable screw terminal connector
10-40V DC (max current 140mA at 12V)
20-28V AC (max current 70mA at 24V)
84 x 54 x 24mm (3.3 x 2.1 x 0.95in) / 102mm (4in) including connector
Reuse legacy cable when upgrading from analogue to IP-Surveillance.
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.
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.
Because coaxial cable will coil and bend properly, unlike Cat 5 cable, HIGHWIRE provides an ideal means to provide network access to elevator carriages, for VoIP, security, lift panel and other devices.
ANYWHERE THERE IS COAXIAL CABLE
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.
