The Patton CL1151E/PAFA/TB/EUI-2PK demand for IP/Ethernet-connected devices in the Audio Video space is growing rapidly. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) in particular-has grown in popularity because it strikes the perfect blend of speed, cost, and ease of use.
Ethernet, however, presents a few drawbacks that may overshadow the benefits by creating escalating infrastructure costs and system downtime. The Ethernet standard specifies a distance limitation of 328 ft (100 m), which restricts location options for device installation. Standard Ethernet also requires Cat 5 cabling or better, which often leads to installing new cabling infrastructure-involving tearing into walls, ceilings, pavement, and worse.
The CopperLink 1151E from Patton enables Ethernet connectivity of your Dante enabled devices over previously installed copper infrastructure, such as existing speaker, alarm cables even CCTV coaxial cable.
Instantaneously install your 10/100BaseTX Dante enabled speakers, I/O converters and more-with no additional overhead cost. With the extended reach the CL1151E provides, you can install your IP Audio Video and teleconferencing equipment exactly where you want it!
Extend Power and Ethernet to compliant or legacy PoE devices using already installed twisted-pair cable or coax
