MxSplitProtect provides weatherproof, surge protected connectivity for up to two IP / PoE devices over a single network line to the serving PoE switch. In addition to the use of new installations, existing video systems can also be cost-effectively expanded if, for example, it is necessary to add a second IP camera or a PoE infrared emitter to an IP camera installed on a mast. Instead of having to relocate another Ethernet cable from the PoE switch in the control cabinet down to the mast, MxSplitProtect can be used as a simpler and more cost-effective solution.
To connect a MOBOTIX camera with MxIRLight infrared radiator, an MxSwitch is installed in the control cabinet (MX-SWITCH). This is powered by a 48V power supply (at least 2A) and - as a MOBOTIX Switch special function - feeds the voltage required for the camera and IR illumination into the laying cable on separate wires, in order to be available at the two MxSplitProtect ports (left: data and power for camera, right: only power for IR-Light). A standard PoE switch is unsuitable for this.
MxSplitProtect protects against surges up to 4 kV on the network cable, but not against direct lightning! In order to reduce the risk of damage as much as possible, an overvoltage concept is usually created and implemented by a person skilled in the art.…more
