VIDA IP 200 are completely plug & play switches which convert Ethernet signals from electrical to optical, and vice versa, for the transmission over plastic optical fiber, as an innovative alternative to traditional copper cables, like CAT5. These switches can be used for the connection of IP cameras in a digital CCTV installations, and, more in general, in any Ethernet network where a constant transmission speed must be guaranteed.
With these converters, the flow of data is constant in every environment and every condition, so the images of IP cameras are always fluent and clear. Powerful electrical wires or factory machines, for example, which commonly hamper the flow of data along traditional copper cables, have no effect on a plastic fiber cable, as it is an electrical insulator. No electro-magnetic interferences can influence the quality of data transmission, so the plastic fiber cable can be safely laid also in ducts containing electrical wires.
Plastic fiber LiteWIRE is extremely easy to handle and install, unlike traditional glass fiber: it can be bent without breaking, and it carries visible light from the converters, so the installer can see the signal coming out of the fiber. In addition to it, plastic fiber is quick to terminate and to repair using basic electrician’s tools.
