El Segundo, CA (PressExposure) August 28, 2009 -- WLAN Mall, a provider of network and connectivity hardware, software and expertise is pleased to announce the addition of a "first" in terms of product development: The worlds first Power-over-Ethernet network camera enclosure. Like all good ideas, WLAN Mall's forward-thinking design for their NetCam enclosure was born out of necessity. Having hooked up one too many wireless surveillance cameras "the old-fashioned way" and having to run both a data feed and a power feed was the impetus for the design of this unique product. The WLAN Mall NetCam True POE IP Camera Enclosure with integrated Heater & Blower is compatible with any IP IEEE-802.3af PoE camera making this clever design the ideal choice for the installation of an outdoor IP Video Camera into any harsh environment. The NetCam Enclosure's patent-pending technology allows for the Heater/Blower and IP camera to all be powered via a single Cat5e cable and standard power supply/injector.
Ronen Isaac, head of product development for WLAN Mall notes "The significant aspect to this NetCam enclosure is that it's 100% powered via standards based 802.3af power over ethernet (POE) meaning that not only is the camera powered by POE (like most other enclosures) but so too is the heating element and the blower element." Designed and manufactured in the USA, this one-of-a-kind item is available only from WLAN Mall. Isaac continues "Most other enclosures require the installer to run a power cable--normally 24V AC--to power the heater and the blower inside the enclosure, and another CAT5 cable to power the camera and transmit the data. In addition, there are added external power supplies and more to purchase and install. Our product does away with all of that excess making the option of outdoor IP Video Surveillance a lot more attractive." With the installation of video cameras on the rise in such environments, the WLAN mall NetCam True POE IP Camera Enclosure with Heater & Blower, IP66 effectively reduces the cost of installing a wireless security camera and simplifies the process by doing away with all but the basics of a typical outdoor Megapixel IP Camera installation.
