    Veracity VHW-HWPS-CBB HIGHWIRE Powerstar Camera BackBox

    Fast Ethernet and POE power over coax video cable

    HIGHWIRE POWERSTAR lets you install IP cameras easily, quickly, and reliably, without the disruption and expense of installing new cable.

    Support for your camera is assured, thanks to HIGHWIRE's unique full-rate Ethernet over Coax technology, which has been tested and trusted by thousands of IP installers worldwide since it launched as an industry first in June 2006.

    And now with POE over Coax, you can deliver up to 25 watts of POE power to the camera as well, eliminating the complexity of installing local power supplies.

    Simply add power

    With no configuration or measurement required, installation of HIGHWIRE Powerstar is as straightforward as plugging it in.

    Two models are used, as shown in the diagram below.  The BASE unit receives POE power and transmits it down the coax.  The CAMERA unit receives power from the coax and delivers up to full POE Plus power to the IP camera.

    If POE is insufficient at the camera end of the cable, just connect an optional power supply.

    Installer friendly

    For fast installation and guaranteed performance, HIGHWIRE Powerstar features Veracity's unique SAFEVIEW display.

    SAFEVIEW provides an instant and easy-to-understand confirmation of network and power status right across the cable, with no need to access remote equipment to check connections.

    Meanwhile, safe and compliant detection of POE equipment and POE over coax compatibility ensures correct operation, with no risk of damage to non-POE or legacy analog equipment.

    Reliability assured

    Because the length and quality of installed coaxial cable is hard to predict or measure, it is important to have confidence that the cable you are upgrading has the capacity to deliver continuous, reliable power to the new IP camera.

    However, thanks to HIGHWIRE POWERSTAR's ultra low-power design and efficient power delivery, even the lowest grade of cheap RG-59 will support a 10 watt IP camera at any range likely to be found in a legacy installation.  And once connected, the SAFEVIEW power display instantly reaffirms that the actual power available to the camera is sufficient.

    For predictable network performance, HIGHWIRE's proven technology delivers full network bandwidth, right to the limits of range.  And secure screw-terminal DC connections, or the option of using a UPS-backed POE source, provide the last link in assuring continuous power delivery.

    Applications: 

    pgrading to IP

    Delivering full network connectivity and standardised, centrally-sourced power without recabling, HIGHWIRE removes many of the barriers to upgrading systems from analogue to digital.

    New installations

     With the familiarity of coaxial cable and the reliability and cost advantages of POE, HIGHWIRE Powerstar is an effective choice for the installation of new IP video systems where cable runs may be very long or inaccessible. The ability to convert coax into a network connection without requiring power has many advantages in upgrading CATV or satellite systems in hotels or other buildings, among other applications.  HIGHWIRE technology has been successfully used with 50 ohm cable and many other non-video types.
