DATALIGHT® for future-proof power and data network

Be it new construction or renovation – DATALIGHT offers you a future-proof power and data network.

Owner builders can save money in new constructions. The infrastructure for power supply and data network is installed at the same time in just one step, thus removing the need for previously required parallel installations.

DATALIGHT becomes invisible in retrofit installations: An extra thin optical fibre can also be drawn into almost fully occupied electrical conduits, or installed in baseboards, directly under the floor or in the corners of the room.

Sustainability and increase in value of your home

Residents browse the internet quickly and trouble-free when accessing all network devices, such as PC, printer, TV or stereo system, and fetch their data, films, music or photos at the same time. Those using Smart Home components, such as home automation, age-appropriate assistance systems or safety systems in their house of the future, make a future-proof decision when opting for DATALIGHT.

Shall the children’s room become a study or a guest room? Just a breeze for DATALIGHT: House owners remain independent, since installed DATALIGHT implies potential data connections at every socket outlet. Residents may feel free to rearrange their rooms at will – without much ado, without dirt and noise typical of conventional construction activities.

Powerline solutions using the 230 V power network or a radio-controlled wireless system sometimes fail to cope with the required transmission speed, since the bandwidths are too small, or the routes are too unstable. This is where DATALIGHT is the perfect solution.

Retrofitting a network

Directly via the router

Image 1: Connect the DATALIGHT media converter to the router using a patch cable and connect the included power cable to a socket outlet.

Image 2: The POF cable from the media converter can be pulled to the terminal device through existing electrical conduits. If necessary, the cable can also be routed to its desired destination in baseboards, under the floor or in corners.

Image 3: At the destination, plug the POF cable into another media converter. You can establish the required power connection directly at the terminal device using the included USB plug. Finally, connect the terminal device with the media converter using a patch cable. Done!

Via an existing network socket

Image 1: Do you already have a network socket with LAN port but require this at another point in the room? In this case, connect the DATALIGHT media converter with the existing LAN port using a patch cable. The nearby socket outlet, for instance, supplies the converter with power.

Image 2: The POF cable from the media converter can be pulled to the terminal device through existing electrical conduits. If necessary, the cable can also be routed to its desired destination in baseboards, under the floor or in corners.

Image 3: At the destination, plug the POF cable into another media converter. The converter can be supplied with power from the terminal device using the included USB mains adapter. Finally, connect the terminal device with the media converter using a patch cable. Voilà, your safe and stable data connection!

Small network

Image 1: Do you need wired network connections in two places in the house only? No problem! Installing a switch is not necessary to set up a small network. Only two media converters are directly connected to the router using patch cables. The included power cables are connected to socket outlets.

Image 2: The POF cables from the media converters can be easily pulled to the desired destination through existing electrical conduits. If necessary, the cable can also be routed in baseboards, under the floor or in corners.

Image 3: At the respective destinations, plug the POF cables into one media converter each. You can establish the required power connection using the included USB mains adapter at the terminal device. Finally, connect the media converter with the terminal device using a patch cable. You can now enjoy fast and stable data transmission thanks to your small network.

With fully occupied switch

Image 1: All connections at the DATALIGHT switch are already occupied? The DATALIGHT media converter is also a quick and easy solution for this situation. Because another media converter can be connected either directly to the router or to the switch itself using patch cables. A socket outlet supplies the converter with power.

Image 2: Similar to examples 1, 2 and 3, the POF cable from the media converter can be pulled to the terminal device through existing electrical conduits. The POF cable can also be routed to its desired destination in baseboards, under the floor or in corners.

Image 3: At the destination, plug the POF cable into another media converter. The converter can be supplied with power from the terminal device using the included USB mains adapter. Finally, connect the terminal device with the media converter using a patch cable.

100 Mbps or 1 Gbps

The 100 Mbps system reliably covers all DSL connections. Home connections via glass fibre or VDSL are already supposed to switch to 1 Gbps.

Which system you choose depends in particular on individual needs: To what extent are IP TV, voice over IP, video streaming or even satellite TV over the network already used? How much data must be transported within the building, within the home cloud (NAS)? Depending on the needs, components from both systems can be combined.

Note: Another advantage: According to Section 35A of the German Income Tax Act (EStG), users can offset the retrofitting installation of network equipment against tax.
