OUTREACH Max XT is the external version of the standard OUTREACH Max unit, enabling network installers to overcome the distance limitations of Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (POE) easily; IP cameras, wireless access points and other POE-powered netwo rk devices can be located exactly where they are needed. Simply connect OUTREACH Max XT in-line with the Cat5 or Cat6 network cable for every extra 100 metres (328 feet) of length required. No configuration or electrical supply is needed, and full-rate network throughput is maintained. As OUTREACH Max XT repeats the network connection every 100 metres, quality does not degrade. This means that the full bandwidth of 100BASE-T Ethernet (200Mbit/sec) is maintained, even over 800 metre runs. This is ess ential for assured transparency and predictability. OUTREACH Max XT’s only connections are its two Ethernet ports, and both configure automatically for link speed, duplex and crossover to eliminate the risk of misconfiguration. Power is forwarded autom atically, and issues with POE power classes are avoided. By connecting an OUTREACH Max XT for every extra 100 metres of cable, both Ethernet and POE can be extended to 200, 300, or even 800 metres (2625 feet).
