A camera with an integrated IR illuminator, like the Axis Q1765, would work.
Is there a reason that you have to use an external / separate IR illuminator?
What's the power rating of the IR illuminator? Do you have to use that Illuminator? What model switch? What splitter are you using? Is it POE 802.3.at compatible?

Check out Tycon Power. A bit pricey, but the stuff does what it says..

What if you unplug the camera, add a small PoE powered PoE forward switch, and ran a patch cable to the camera and to a PoE powered IR illuminator? A photography store with which I am familar sells those switches for less than $200.
OK, this is a plug for one of our products, but you did ask ! Please have a look at our CAMSWITCH 4 Plus :
POE Switch IP Camera 802.at POE switch 802.3at Power over Ethernet
This is a POE-powered switch, so you can power it from your switch or a midpsan injector. This will give you separate POE outputs at the camera end and should do the trick. Available from most major distributors.
A Cheap fix for the problem , $30.00 POE injector on the camera only , leave the Ir illuminator alone
More expensive fix , use 45 wtt per channel poe switches , verify 45 wtt s true output per channel , not total as 45 could be really 3o wtts .
Other Option Use separate poe power supplys for Ir illuminators , keep separate from system .
Isolated , not combined .
Verify that the ir illuminators dont really have misrepresented spec's.
Veriy that the cat 6 shielded does not go to ground when you exceed the power curve , say 65% , Cat 6 is ground fault sensitive cable and installation has to be completed properly or problems in system occurr at random times
Verify that the cable s are properly installed , no pressure on cables , ie wire ties, straps, clamps
Thanks for the inputs. @Wilson : We are connecting both at the same time with the help of a RJ 45 splitter at the camera side. It might be the cable length problem I guess. Anyways I am checking it through a 802.3at compliant POE switch. Lets see the result. I will keep updating.
V = IR
That's quite a long run! (either shorten the run, or add an injector nearer to the camera)
For outdoor installation, Videotec does offer a solution for PoE cameras where you can add one of our infrared illuminator (only Hi PoE with the IR).
Please check HOV IPM or VERSO IPM
I have had the same problem in the past. Have you tried using a power injector device, stripping off the power conductors from the Cat6 cable, putting them thru the injector and stripping them again once they reach the camera and tapping the cable leads through one device and into the second device?
I'm not sure if you are still looking for solutions, but the Veracity Long Span looks good, on paper at least.
Also in retrospect, Ari's suggestion of the Camswitch is on point, since it is powered by hi-poe (at), but then delivers standard poe (af) at the drop. If your illuminator does not itself require at power this should act as an intellegent power arbiter/splitter, and it should not let one device hog all the power... Both are available from a certain retailer he's familiar with...
