Ethernet extension doesn't have to be expensive or difficult. Patton's CL1314 long range Ethernet Extenders open the door to cost-effective Ethernet extension that is easy to set up. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the CL1314 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 CL1314 delivers speeds up to 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.
The CL1314 comes with a built-in four-port, 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 to four 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 CL1314 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 four 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!
