FMCI-PG1M does not support Power over Ethernet applications.

Issue

FMCI-PG1M does not support Power over Ethernet applications despite documentation that shows that it does.

Product Line

Pelco Cameras, Pelco Transmission & Power

Environment

  • FMCI-PG1M (Media Converters)


     

Cause

The model that Pelco uses for the FMCI-PG1M is not designed to support a Power over Ethernet environment. Documents relating to the model, Installation and operation manual for FMCI-PG1/PG1M/PG (Document # C3925M / Rev 04-24-13), shows incorrectly that the FMCI-PG1M support PoE.

Resolution

For sites requiring Power over Ethernet, a power injector, Midspan, or PoE Switch will be required in order to provide power to the camera. Documentation is currently being corrected to fix this error.
