2N® 2Wire

The 2N® 2Wire is a set of two convertors that allows you to connect any IP device installed at a location with no IP infrastructure to your network. You connect the two convertors via the existing analogue distribution mains from the original doorbell or intercom and then connect your IP device to one of these, e.g. an IP intercom, and connect the other to a switch. The advantage is that you don’t have to configure anything. In addition, you only need one analogue cable for the transmission of audio, video and to supply power.

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.
  • 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.
  • Long reach
    Powering the IP-connected devices via PoE is possible up to a distance of 220m, twice the maximum Ethernet specification cable length.
  • Universal Ethernet ‘extension’
    With 2N® 2Wire you’ll get Ethernet even in places with no IP network. You can hook up any IP devices, e.g. 2N IP intercoms.
  • 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.
  • Screw-in connectors
    2N® 2Wire uses high-quality connectors, which prevents cables from falling out, giving you even more reliability.
  • Power supply
    Included is an adapter with a selectable US/UK/EU plug.
