PacketFlux RackInjector


 Product Description

Pre-order now and get one of the first units off of the assembly line at a $100 discount.  
Update: We began making the initial production run of RackInjectors, but unfortunately, we encountered some manufacturability issues that necessitated a redesign of the circuit boards. The new boards are going through test procedures right now. Once we are confident that the new boards can be manufactured and tested correctly we will go into full production. We assure you that our top priority is to ship these RackInjectors to our waiting customers.
To reserve your place in line for the next batch, your credit card will be charged *in full* for this product at the time of ordering as a deposit. Please do not pre-order if this is a problem for you.
Our new RackInjector includes the following key features:
  • 1U 19" RackMounted Metal Enclosure.
  • Base Price ($249) includes the enclosure and control board. 
  • The Rack Enclosure has room for the control board and up to 4 power injection cards
  • The Control Board includes the following:
    • 10/100 Ethernet Management Interface featuring a new, modern, and responsive web interface.
    • Control all ports in the device using the web interface.
    • RJ45 jack to connect to a PacketFlux SyncBox GPS receiver (or our earlier SyncPipe products) to receive sync from the GPS constellation for use by cards which are capable of 1PPS derived synchronization.
    • GPS synchronization output jack to connect to additional PacketFlux sync-over-power products at a site.
    • Three power inputs, each rated at 10A.  Each input can be a different voltage to support different radio types.
    • Monitor the voltage of each power input.  In a future release of the firmware, log and graph the voltages directly on the device.
    • Future feature set will include graphing, logging, and on-device scripting.
  • Each power injection card 'slot' can either be left empty, or can have a power injection card installed.
  • The currently available power injection card has the following features:
    • Each port can be selected to any of the 3 power inputs from the control board with Jumpers
    • Power Pinouts configurable via jumper - supports almost any power injection scheme which is Gigabit-Compatible, including many older 10/100 powering schemes.
    • Each port individually controllable through the web interface on the Management interface.
    • Supports 'all 4 pair' power injection such as those used by AirFiber Radios and others.
    • Each card provides power to up to four PoE powered devices - radios, cameras, whatever you'd like.  With 4 cards in a chassis, 16 ports of injection are available in 1U.
    • Each port cable of 1A per pair of pairs - 2A total per port when using all 4 pairs.  (96W at 48V).
    • Each port contains it's own electronic overcurrent and short circuit production.  
    • Capable of providing Canopy-style Sync-Over-Power synchronization compatible with 450i and earlier cambium radios, provided a PacketFlux sync source is connected to the Control Board.   Timing is completely compatible with official Cambium Timing products such as the CMM Micro and CMM4.
    • NOTE ABOUT CAMBIUM 450m (Medusa):  This card will provide power to a Medusa Radio, but will not provide the "Cambium Sync" required by the 450m. A new card is in development to provide this style of sync to these radios. If you need to synchronize a 450m, we do have options available. Please contact us for more information.
  • Entire unit is designed to operate from -40C/F to +50C, Non-condensing.
