The DWL-P200 delivers both data and electrical power to Ethernet-enabled devices using a single Ethernet cable. Using Power over Ethernet, you eliminate the need to place an Ethernet-enabled device, such as a wireless access point, near a power outlet, giving you more freedom in placement.
The DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter is simple to install, requiring no tools and no software. Its compact size makes implementation of the DWL-P200 easy. Plug the base unit into a power outlet, and then connect the terminal unit to your network device using any standard Ethernet cable. Once set up, the terminal device unit can output power** to any compatible 5V or 12V Ethernet-enabled device.
The DWL-P200 simplifies your installation of Ethernet-enabled devices, such as an Internet camera or wireless access points, by allowing you to place it beyond the range of standard power outlets. You can now mount these devices to a ceiling or outside without placing them near a power supply.
With the DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Adapter, both power and data can be transmitted up to 328 feet (100m)* using standard Ethernet cabling with virtually no reduction in data throughput. Use the DWL-P200 with Ethernet-enabled devices where power outlets are not readily available.
