Quick Overview

1-Port 10/100Base-TX + 1-Port BNC Ethernet over Coaxial Extender

PLANET VC-202A is a high-performance Ethernet-over-Coaxial extender that converts between twisted pair (UTP) and coaxial cable for every kind of IP Ethernet application.

It offers the absolutely fastest data transmission speed over existing coaxial cable without the need of rewiring. On the UTP side, the VC-202A uses a modular EIA / TIA 568 RJ-45 connector that supports CAT-5/5e or above wiring with the distance up to 100 meters (328 feet). On the coaxial cable side, the VC-202A utilizes a BNC connector that supports 50ohm or 75ohm coaxial cable with the distance up to 3km. 

It is ideal for extending the distance and signal conversion by transmitting the Ethernet data from the coaxial cable for any type of IP network device such as IP camera, wireless access point, NVR and digital signage.
