OmniConverter GXPoE+/S and GXHPoE/Sare unmanaged gigabit PoE Extenders that enable the delivery of Ethernet data and Power over Ethernet (PoE) beyond the standard 100 meter limit of twisted pair copper cabling.

OmniConverter PoE Extenders provide cost-effective distance extension and connectivity to remote PoE devices where external power is not available or hard to provision, or when replacing copper with fiber becomes cost prohibitive.

OmniConverter PoE Extenders are 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet extenders that function as both Powered Devices (PD) and Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), and require no external AC power. They feature one PoE/PD port and one or two PoE/PSE ports, and can be powered by an IEEE 802.3at or High-Power (HPoE) 60W power source, such as an OmniConverter GHPoEBT/Sx or GHPoEBT/M PSE switch.

Utilizing data regeneration and voltage level boosting capabilities, OmniConverter PoE Extenders can be daisy chained to break through the Ethernet copper distance barrier and deliver 10/100/1000 data and power to multiple PoE powered devices.

Due to cable resistance, voltage drop across the cabling could lower the voltage below the minimum standard requirement of the attached PD. OmniConverter PoE Extenders have Smart Voltage-Boosting Technology to maintain the required standard compliant PoE voltage levels between hops.

The PoE Extenders automatically negotiate and deliver the power level required by a Powered Device (PD) partner. When a non-PoE device, such as a laptop, is connected to the PoE Extenders for data only applications, no power is applied.

OmniConverter PoE Extenders are plug-and-play devices that support auto-negotiation of data rates and duplex modes for simple in-line installation to instantly extend network distances. The PoE Extenders are fully operational once a PSE is connected to the PoE/PD port, displaying power and operational status without a PD attached. This facilities the installation and troubleshooting by ensuring each link is operational.

The OmniConverter PoE Extenders can be wall mounted, rack mounted and DIN-rail mounted using the optional DIN-rail mounting clip kit.


Basic PoE Extender Application

This example shows an OmniConverter PoE Extender powering an 802.3at PoE camera, and achieving a distance of 200 meters (656 feet) between an 802.3at PoE PSE switch and the camera.


PoE Extender with Two Powered Devices Application

This example shows an OmniConverter PoE Extender with two PoE/PSE ports powering an 802.3af camera and an 802.3at Wi-Fi Access Point 200 meters from the HPoE 60W PoE PSE switch.


PoE Drop-and-Extend Application

In this example, three OmniConverter PoE Extenders are deployed in a daisy chain that is powered by a HPoE 60W PoE PSE switch. PoE cameras are dropped off at the first and second PoE Extender locations using models with one RJ-45 PoE/PD port and two RJ-45 PoE/PSE ports.

The daisy chain continues to the third PoE Extender, and to the final PoE camera for a distance of 400 meters (1,312 feet).


PoE Extender Daisy Chain Applications

In this example (A), six PoE Extenders are deployed in a daisy chain extending the distance between a HPoE 60W PoE PSE switch and an 802.3af PoE camera. The total distance between the switch and the camera is 700 meters (2,296 feet). With Omnitron’s exclusive Smart Voltage-Boosting Technology, the input voltage at the PoE camera is guaranteed to meet the IEEE standard (see Distance and Power table).




In this example (B), an Ethernet data only application is shown. The camera at the end of the daisy chain is AC powered from a local source. A combination of GXHPoE/S or GXPoE+/S Extenders can achieve a distance of up to 800 meters with a HPoE 60W PoE power source, such as an OmniConverter GHPoEBT/Sx or GHPoEBT/M PSE switch, at the head end.
