The Net2 plus control unit connects to the central administration PC using an RJ45 plug into a standard TCP/IP Ethernet network. This greatly increases the flexibility of installation options on sites that have LAN/WAN networks. The Net2 plus control unit can also be connected to other Net2 plus or Net2 classic control units using a dedicated CAT5 cable.
Net2 plus is also available with a Power over Ethernet (PoE) power supply. PoE is a technology that allows both power and data to be passed along Ethernet cabling. Net2 plus with
PoE simply plugs straight into the existing LAN using a standard RJ45 plug (providing it is powered by either a compatible PoE switch or a PoE injector).
The Net2 plus unit now comes with a PoE+ power supply in a metal/plastic cabinet; no separate mains supply back-up required.
