PoE splitters and injectors are necessary to power and interconnect a range of devices that may or may not be compatible with the existing network. A PoE splitter receives a unified PoE signal (data and power) and separates the data and power onto two different outputs. It’s used to connect non-PoE devices (not compliant with the IEEE802.3af standard) to a PoE network.
A PoE injector accepts a standard Ethernet input and outputs data and DC power through the Ethernet cable to PoE-equipped devices like IP cameras compliant to IEEE 802.3at. An injector eliminates the need for a power cable. Network traffic passes through a splitter or injector without modifications. Designed for industrial applications, these devices are extremely reliable and built to last.
