What is the maximum distance for IP camera?
Is there a maximum distance you can run a category 5 or 6 cable for IP cameras? The short answer is yes but it varies with the network speed you are working to. As most NIC’s are 100BaseT there is a 90 metre rule for Ethernet cables.
How far can you run cat5e PoE?
These share many of the same physical characteristics including distance limitations, but Cat5e is designed for faster networking speeds and reduced crosstalk interference. The maximum length you can run Cat5, Cat5e, Cat6 and Cat6a cable is 100 meters or 328 feet.
What is the maximum distance for cat6 cable?
Can you run PoE over cat5?
Power-over-Ethernet begins with a CAT5 “Injector” that inserts a DC Voltage onto the CAT5 cable. Some Wireless Access Points and other network accept the injected DC power directly from the CAT5 cable through their RJ45 jack. These devices are considered to be “PoE-Compatible” or “Active Ethernet Compatible”.
