The new Zigen ZIG-POE-70 POE extender is now shipping and available for any project that requires single category cable extension of HDMI signals. The POE-70 is designed to serve as a workhorse in the CI world of 24/7 operation and suitable for all residential and commercial/industrial environments.
The Zigen ZIG-POE-70 is an HDBaseT transmitter/receiver set for HDMI transmission up to 230 feet (70 meters) over category cable with RS-232 and IR control plus power over ethernet capability. The set transmits video signals up to 4K/UHD @ 60Hz with embedded multi-channel audio and remote 48V power for the receiver. The kit provides bidirectional extension of 3 to 12 V IR (IR Receiver included) and RS-232 commands. The set is HDCP 2.2 compliant and supports EDID communication.
The ZIG-POE-70 sender provides a complete solution for detection and powering of POE IEEE 802.3af devices such as the ZIG-POE receiver/TV box. The sender will safely detect, classify, and provide up to 13 watts of power to the receiver via HDBaseT connection. The receiver reads a signature from the sender (TX) and only enables power delivery if all constraints for safe power delivery are met. During power delivery the link is continuously monitored for any fault or overloading conditions and the current is limited to avoid hazardous conditions.
The ZIG-POE-70 sender senses the removal of a powered device and turns the 48V power supply off immediately when the receiver is disconnected.
The IEEE 802.3af, also called Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) Power via Media Dependent Interface (MDI), is the first international standard to define the transmission of power over ethernet infrastructure. The standard was ratified in June 2003.
