Optex Announces PoE IP Encoder to Ease Integration of Optex Sensors with VMS and NVRs
CHINO, Calif., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The new PIE-1 Alarm IP Encoder from Optex provides the dual functions of PoE power delivery to remote Optex devices and conversion of alarm signals to an IP protocol for delivery to video management systems or network video recorders. The PIE-1 provides support for Optex sensors in security systems using VMS and NVRs through vendor- unique API.
The device can be used in a number of ways:
- PoE (Power over Ethernet) only: to power remotely the Optex Redscan laser scanner provides IP alarm signals natively and requires no conversion encoding. The PIE-1 supports both PoE and PoE Plus, switching automatically between them as required by the sensor.
- IP Encoder and PoE: The PIE-1 both converts the alarm signal to IP and powers the remote device. This is the typical mode for use with Optex Redwall passive infrared detector and Fiber Defender optical fiber-based perimeter security systems from an Optex subsidiary Fiber SenSys.
