What is injector in network?

What is injector in network?

They are small and straightforward hardware devices that you connect to your network to allow you to power other devices throughout your network. A power injector will support data speeds up to a Gigabit (1 Gbps) while also powering compatible devices over a single cable.

What is a PoE injector adapter?

A device that adds power to an Ethernet cable for Power over Ethernet (PoE) equipment. A PoE injector is also called a “PoE adapter.” See PoE. PoE Injector. The injector plugs into an electric outlet and adds power to the Ethernet cable.

How far do PoE injectors work?

100 meters
How Does a PoE Injector Work? When Ethernet switches or other devices have no PoE function but need to support PDs (Powered Devices) like PoE IP cameras, PoE wireless access points (WAP), PoE lighting, etc., a PoE injector can help transfer both power and data to these PDs up to 100 meters.

How do PoE injectors work?

With PoE injectors, you send power and data through the Ethernet cable between the IP Camera and the injector. The data travels from the switch into the injector, which feeds it to the IP camera over 2 pairs of wires in the Ethernet cable.

Why do you need a PoE injector?

A PoE injector connects your PoE-enabled network device to a non-PoE LAN switch port. Using a PoE injector avoids the need to run AC power lines for your wireless access point, network camera or IP phone, because you use the existing LAN cabling to deliver both DC power as well as data.

Do you need a PoE injector?

Most offices have dozens of powered devices, such as IP phones, IP cameras, and Wireless Access Points, just to name a few. If you didn’t want to upgrade your non-PoE enabled network switches, you’d have to use a PoE injector for every single device on the network.

How do you install injectors PoE?

Simply connect an Ethernet cable from a non-PoE switch to the injector, plug in the power cable, and then run a third PoE cable from the injector to your PoE enabled powered device. In essence, a PoE injector converts two inputs – a power cable and a data cable – into a single (PoE) output.
