Our Ethernet Extenders are cost-effective solutions for extending your Ethernet LAN connections up to 2,600 m via coaxial cable or up to 1,900 m over a pair of unused straight copper wire. These simple, reliable, and easy-to-configure Ethernet over copper and coaxial cable devices feature wide temperature ranges and have a multitude of applications. In commercial environments, the most common application is to extend 10/100/1000-Mbps over 2 or 4-wire twisted pair cable. One benefit of ethernet copper extenders are that they can eliminate the need for installing expensive Switches and Cat 5 cable. Ethernet extenders can use fiber-optic or copper twisted-pair cables to transparently send packets at full-line rate to a peered LAN up to 8 km away. While networks typically deploy Ethernet extenders within a limited geographical area, this area need not be limited to one building. Ethernet extenders can create effective bridged-Ethernet connections across streets or over a college or enterprise campus and between Ethernet LANs up to 8km apart.
In industrial environments, extenders may be used over twisted-pair, coax, or fiber cable for making RS-232/422/485 equipment connections. Other applications can include extension over coax or fiber cable and T1/E1 circuits. Our extenders come in a panel mount or DIN rail mount options and come with a standard 5 year warranty. Ethernet Extenders from PLC technologies can be used in commercial and industrial appilcations aroound the world.
