This two-port PCI Express (PCIe x4) network adapter can power PoE cameras and other devices via the data cable. This saves the expense of purchasing external power supplies and running additional cables. Each port can deliver 15.4 W of power and 1000 Mb/s bandwidth over a CAT-5/CAT-6 cable of up to 100 meters.
This network adapter is ideal for high-bandwidth devices, such as machine vision cameras. The two Intel 82574L Ethernet controllers are independent, so traffic on one network does not interfere with traffic on the other. Each controller supports jumbo frames, up to 9 KB, for greater efficiency. Link aggregation ("teaming") is also supported.
This network adapter and the connected devices are powered via the computer's PCIe bus. No external power supply is needed.
We recommend use with our shielded CAT-6 cables.
