Altronix PACE Devices That Extend Distances Up To 500m.

Fairly new product that claims extending Cat5e power and data out to 500 meters. Frankly I'm a bit leery that PoE+ can be extended to 500 meters without a midspan injector every 95 meters.

We originally specified multimode fiber with Axis media converters on the camera end going back to a fiber bulkhead. However, the customers' electrical contractor came back with a large change order in order to make up for their initial super low comm. bid.

Does anyone have experience on whether or not these devices actually extend to the claimed distances and if so, is power and video working properly?
