2N® 2Wire

2N® 2Wire is a set of two convertor units that lets you connect any IP device installed at locations with no IP infrastructure to your network. Connect the device, such as an IP intercom, to one unit and a switch to the other unit. Then connect both convertor units to each other using the existing analogue wiring. This will transmit audio and video as well as supply power.

  • Ethernet including PoE over 2 wires
  • Long reach
  • Up to four sets per installation

About

Features & Benefits

  • Ethernet including PoE over 2 wires
    Connect any IP device using a two-wire or coaxial cable, even in an analogue environment, or a site with limited IP infrastructure.
  • Long reach
    Powering the IP-connected devices via PoE is possible up to a distance of 720ft, twice the maximum Ethernet specification cable length.
  • Up to four sets per installation
    You can connect up to four pairs of 2N® 2Wire convertor units to a single switch. This means you can connect an intercom to several answering units as well as an IP camera.
  • Easy installation
    No more configuring! At each end of the cable you just plug in one 2N® 2Wire unit and connect at least one of them to a power source.
  • Robust aluminium housing
    Thanks to its aluminium housing the 2N® 2Wire converter is rugged and resistant to mechanical damage.
  • Utilize existing cabling
    2N® 2Wire enables you to make use of existing wiring. You won’t have to lay new cables or do construction work.
  • Reliability
    The converter will not let you down. It is significantly more reliable, in comparison with alternatives, such as a WiFi connection.
  • Power supply and connectors
    The pack includes an adapter with a US/UK/EU plug of your choice and high-quality connectors which prevent the cables from falling out.
