When you need to extend Ethernet services beyond the general IEEE 802.3 limits of 328ft / 100m in extreme temperatures, and new fibre cabling is cost prohibitive, Ethernet Extenders are the perfect solution. Perle Ethernet Extenders transparently extend up to four 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections across copper wiring. Use single twisted pair ( CAT5/6/7 ) or any existing copper wiring previously used in alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV applications.
Equipment found in traffic management, oil and gas pipelines, weather tracking, industrial and outdoor applications must function in temperatures that cannot be supported by a commercial based Ethernet Extender. With the ability to operate in industrial grade temperatures of -40F to +167F (-40C to +75C) along with a rugged steel casing, these simple and effective point to point Ethernet Copper Extenders are ideal to extend the distance between two industrial Ethernet devices subjected to harsh environments and severe temperatures such as security cameras, wireless access points, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors and tracking devices.
Perle’s advanced features such as Link Pass-Through*, Interlink Fault Feedback*, and Loopback allow Network administrators to “see everything” for more efficient troubleshooting and less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide technical support, make Perle Ethernet Extenders the smart choice for IT professionals. eX-S1110 Ethernet Extenders are also available with support for Extended Temperature ranges, managed networks with AAA security and high density applications.
Extend Ethernet over Twisted Pair
Extend an Ethernet link over category 5e, 6 and 7 cabling up to 10,000 feet (3 km)
Extend Ethernet over Coaxial cable
Extend an Ethernet link over 75 ohm coaxial cable
Utilises second generation VDSL2 technology (ITU-T Recommendation G.993.). When operating under “Profile 30a”, Perle Ethernet Extenders can provide an aggregate VDSL line rate capability of over 200 mbps. Actual distance and performance may vary depending on the type / gauge and condition of the wire used.
Plug and Play Operation
Perle Ethernet Extenders will automatically configure your VDSL interlink connection. The CO/CPE peer association will be determined automatically by the Ethernet Extender. No need to set CO / CPE VDSL pairing. Once a connection is made, both ends will automatically adjust relevant VDSL parameters to optimise the level of bandwidth possible across the copper link.
With Link Pass-Through the state of the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connection is “passed through” the VDSL link to the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connection on its remote peer. A managed switch on the remote end can then report the state (link up or link down) to its network management system so that any errors can be detected and recovered early. Competitive Ethernet extenders without this feature will never detect or report any error conditions.
Interlink Fault Feedback
Similar to the Link Pass-Through feature, a loss of VDSL link will drop the 10/100 Ethernet ports on each end until the link recovers.
The Ethernet Extender supports auto negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX interface.
Auto-MDIX (Automatic Medium-Dependent Interface crossover) detects the signalling on the 10/100 Ethernet RJ45 interface and determines the type of cable connected (straight-through or crossover) and automatically adopts a compatible pinout.
Fixed Speed and Duplex
Some Ethernet equipment require a fixed speed and duplex be used or cannot auto-negotiate. By disabling Auto-Negotiation on the Ethernet Extender, a fixed speed of 10 or 100 mbps as well as Full or half Duplex can be configured through DIP switches.
Transparent to tagged VLAN (802.1Q) packets.
Transparent to IP Video Compression Protocols
Fully transparent to such IP video compression schemes such as MPEG-4, H.264 and MJPEG.
Power Strain Relief Strap
A strain relief strap is provided to ensure a solid and secure power connection to the Ethernet Extender. Ideal for areas that may be exposed to vibration.
When enabled, will perform a loopback on the copper VDSL Interlink.
