Ethernet extension doesnt have to be expensive or difficult. The Patton CL1324 long range Ethernet Extenders open the door to cost-effective Ethernet extension that is easy to set up. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the CL1324 CopperLink Ethernet Extenders leverage existing copper twisted-pair infrastructure to interconnect Ethernet devices and networks at high speeds over long distances.
Pattons CopperLink Ethernet Extenders ensure hassle-free set-up and operation, while achieving the highest possible line rate for the required distance and electromagnetic environment. Users can let the modems select the best acheivable rate or they can hard-set the desired line rate via DIP switches, console Telnet or HTTP.
The CL1324 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.
The CL1324 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!
