Dotworkz has released the first IP camera enclosure that fully integrates the Zarlink copper-to-fiber converter module. Designed for camera-side deployment, the Zarlink module adapts a standard single fiber optic ST connector to an RJ-45 Ethernet output, simplifying installation and expansion of IP video systems by providing an extended point-to-point connection of up to 2,000 metres over single-stranded multimode optical fiber.

In comparison, the reach of coaxial cable is limited to 300 metres, while twisted-pair copper cabling is restricted to about 100 metres.

About the size of a deck of cards, the module is mounted within the D2 to completely protect it from extreme environmental factors or vandalism. It operates on standard 12 VDC or optional 24 VDC power, using less than 2 watts per module.
