Ethernet extension doesn't have to be expensive or difficult. The CL1300R series of Ruggedized Ethernet Extenders open the door to cost-effective Ethernet extension that is easy to set up. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the CL1300R series CopperLink Ethernet Extenders leverage existing copper twisted-pair infrastructure to interconnect Ethernet devices and networks at high speeds over long distances.
Operating over standard 0.5 mm (24 AWG) voice-grade wiring, the CL1300R series delivers speeds 5.7 Mbps and extends Ethernet connections across distances ranging from 2.7 to 6.9 km (1.7 to 4.3 miles). Whether you need connect to a remote office or private-network backbone to a corporate LAN - or interconnect such network-enabled devices such as PCs, digital sensors and IP cameras - Patton Ethernet Extenders offer the industry's optimum combination of speed and distance.
Patton's CopperLink Ethernet Extenders ensure hassle-free set-up and operation, while achieving the highest possible line rate for the required distance and electro-magnetic environment. Users "hard-set" the desired line rate via DIP switches or console Telnet. A 35 mm DIN rail clip is included on all units for clean installations.
The CL1311R comes with one Ethernet ports. It features auto-sensing, 10/100Base-TX Ethernet switch that provides automatic medium-dependent interface crossover capability (auto-MDIX). That means you can use cross-over or straight-through cables (whichever is handy) to connect up your Ethernet devices. The auto-MDIX feature detects the polarity of the cabling on each port, and automatically configures the signaling to match. Absolutely no user-configuration is required.
Operating at layer 2 of the OSI model (data link layer), the CL1300R series transparently passes all higher-layer protocols - including VLAN tagging, multicast addressing, VPN pass-through for IPsec, and all IP-video compression schemes. All common industrial protocols are also transparently supported, including MODBUS/TCP and PROFINET IO.
Set-up is easy! Simply connect up to your LAN devices to the Ethernet switch, plug the copper twisted-pair into each extender, and apply power! For simple, cost-effective and efficient Ethernet extension, Patton's CopperLink Ethernet Extenders are the ideal solution!
