Ecopper simplifies migration to IP

Dartford, Kent (UK)

The Ecopper product line from KBC Networks allows integrators to use existing coax and twisted pair cabling, found in legacy systems, to convert an analogue system to an IP system.

For applications when a rugged solution for an industrial video surveillance site is needed Ecopper fits the bill, because it is specifically designed for the most demanding environments, with features that make it ideal for use in complex industrial and IP video surveillance applications.

Firstly, it powers IP devices. In addition to offering Power over Coax (PoC), Ecopper provides PoE and PoE+ to IP devices. And in addition, it is plug and play, allowing the system to be up and running in minutes.

Ecopper has also been engineered with interference immunity. Crosstalk is when a signal transmitted on one pair or channel has an undesired effect on another pair or channel. According to KBC, Ecopper is recognised for having low crosstalk, meaning it can be used in challenging applications like elevators.

Additionally, Ecopper is able to cover longer distances than Ethernet. For longer cable runs, Ecopper is an alternative to fibre or wireless since its transmission distance is greater than 100 metres.

The solution is also kinder to the environment, as it is implemented using the existing infrastructure, preventing e-waste.

The award-winning. Ecopper has also been recognised by A&S magazine as one of the best network devices of 2019. The magazine praised its simple GUI, the fact that it can power both the transmitter and remote cameras, and the cost savings it provides to customers who no longer need a full infrastructure upgrade.

These feature-rich, easy to configure, Ecopper transmitters and receivers come in 1-, 4-, 8-, and 16-channel options.
