AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade Kit
Cost-efficient migration to network video for larger installations
- Reuse Coax cables and benefit from PoE+
- Fits Axis encoder chassis for low installation costs
- Cost-effective power supply – two options available
- Compact, high-density solution
If you are using Axis video encoder blades with any Axis video encoder chassis in your current surveillance system, AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade Kits are the most efficient way to migrate to a network video solution – and keep your Coax cabling. Each AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade Kit comes with one AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade and six AXIS T8642 PoE+ over Coax Devices for six cameras.
You already own the chassis
The six-channel blade kit can be used with any Axis video encoder chassis or an AXIS 291 1U Video Server Rack. You can simply pull out encoder blades that are no longer needed and replace them with AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blades. Installation costs are low because there’s no need to purchase new chassis. And you can use any combination of encoder blades and PoE+ over Coax blades, so you can migrate to IP at your own pace.
Let your Coax cables do double-duty
AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blade Kit lets you reuse hard-to-replace or long-range Coax cabling when you replace your analog cameras with Axis network cameras. And you can integrate Power over Ethernet over Coax for efficient power management. Range distances depend on the power required and the type of cable quality.
A compact – and powerful – solution
The Axis chassis acts as a network switch, so you won’t have to purchase and install separate switches. Simply connect AXIS T8646 PoE+ over Coax Blades to your choice of two Axis rack-mounted, power supply solutions (AXIS T8085 or AXIS T8082), for a compact, and cost-effective modular installation. You can, for example, run up to 36 cameras using one 500-watt AXIS T8085 PS57 500W 1U power source. And you can connect to a backup power source for extra reliability. Or, use AXIS T8082 PS57 Chassis 2KW 1U for even bigger installations. It consists of a power supply chassis that comes with two 1 KW power supply modules and has extra slots for two more 1K power supply modules. So the total possible effect is 4K with built-in redundancy.
