The Veracity Powerstar Ethernet and PoE Over Coax Converter allows you to run Network cameras over Legacy Coaxial cable with no power supply required.

The Veracity Powerstar Ethernet and PoE Over Coax Converter lets you run 1 network camera over your coaxial cable, and power it with a PoE switch.


The HIGHWIRE PowerStar lets you install IP network cameras quick and easy, without the distractions, disruptions, and expense of installing new cable.

Support for your camera is assured, thanks to HIGHWIRE PowerStar's unique full-rate Ethernet over Coax technology, which has been tested and trusted by thousands of IP installers worldwide over the past five years.

The Veracity Powerstar Ethernet and PoE Over Coax Converter has PoE over Coax, which will send up to 25 watts of PoE power to the networ camera, eliminating the neet to install local power supplies.

Simply add power
With no configuration or measurement required, installation of HIGHWIRE PowerStar is as straightforward as plugging it in.

Two models are used, as shown in the diagram below.  The BASE unit receives PoE power and transmits it down the coax.  The CAMERA unit receives power from the coax and delivers up to full PoE Plus power to the IP camera.

If PoE is not available, or for an extra power boost at either end of the cable, just connect the optional power supply.

Installer friendly
For fast installation and guaranteed performance, HIGHWIRE PowerStar features Veracity's unique SafeView display.

SafeView provides an instant and easy-to-understand confirmation of network and power status right across the cable, with no need to access remote equipment to check connections.

Meanwhile, safe and compliant detection of PoE equipment and PoE over coax compatibility ensures correct operation, with no risk of damage to non-PoE or legacy analog equipment.

Reliability assured
Because the length and quality of installed coaxial cable is hard to predict or measure, it is important to have confidence that the cable you are upgrading has the capacity to deliver continuous, reliable power to the new IP camera.

However, thanks to HIGHWIRE PowerStar's ultra low-power design and efficient power delivery, even the lowest grade of cheap RG-59 will support a 10 watt IP camera at any range likely to be found in a legacy installation.  And once connected, the SafeView power display instantly reaffirms that the actual power available to the camera is sufficient.

For predictable network performance, HIGHWIRE's proven technology delivers full network bandwidth, right to the limits of range.  And secure screw-terminal DC connections, or the option of using a UPS-backed PoE source, provide the last link in assuring continuous power delivery.

Veracity Highwire Quad Security Applications:

Upgrading to IP
Delivering full network connectivity and standardised, centrally-sourced power without recabling, HIGHWIRE removes many of the barriers to upgrading systems from analog to digital.

New installations
With the familiarity of coaxial cable and the reliability and cost advantages of PoE, HIGHWIRE PowerStar is an effective choice for the installation of new IP video systems where cable runs may be very long or inaccessible.

Long range networking
Use HIGHWIRE as a cost-effective means to deploy network conenctions beyond 100 metres - for example a buried RG-11 cable can be used to deliver a
network connection between buildings 500 metres apart.

Elevators and mechanisms
Because coaxial cable will coil and bend properly, unlike Cat 5 cable, HIGHWIRE provides an ideal means to provide network access to elevator carriages, for VoIP, security, lift panel and other devices.

Anywhere there's coax!
HIGHWIRE has been deployed over all types of video cable, radar, TV antenna and satellite downlinks, armored steel cables, you name it.  50 ohm coax or cables of other impedance can normally be used without any modification to the unit.
Because coaxial cable will coil and bend properly, unlike Cat 5 cable, HIGHWIRE provides an ideal means to provide network access to elevator carriages, for VoIP, security, lift panel and other devices.
