When you need to extend Ethernet services beyond the general IEEE 802.3 limits of 328ft / 100m, and new fiber cabling is cost prohibitive, Ethernet Extenders are the perfect solution. Installed in a high density Perle Media Converter Chassis, Perle Ethernet Extenders transparently extend 10/100 Ethernet connections across copper wiring. Use single twisted pair ( CAT5/6/7 ), coax or any existing copper wiring previously used in alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV applications.
These simple and effective point to point Ethernet Copper Extenders are perfect for commercial buildings, residential units, hospitality environments, connecting a remote office or private-network backbone to a corporate LAN … anywhere you need Ethernet communication links between separated LANs or LAN devices (i.e. PCs, digital sensors, VoIP phones, WiFi APs, IP cameras and more).
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 eX-C110 Ethernet Extenders the smart choice for IT professionals. eX-C110 Ethernet Extenders are also available for managed networks with AAA security and as standalone models with support for Commercial Temperature ranges and Extended Temperature ranges.
eX-C110 Fast Ethernet Extender Features
|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|
|High-Speed Performance||Utilizes 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 optimize the level of bandwidth possible across the copper link.
|Link Pass-Through||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.|
|Auto-Negotiation||The Ethernet Extender supports auto negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX interface.|
|Auto-MDIX||Auto-MDIX (Automatic Medium-Dependent Interface crossover) detects the signaling 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.|
|VLAN||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.|
|Loopback||When enabled, will perform a loopback on the copper VDSL Interlink.|
|Port||1 port RJ45 – 10/100 Base-TX - Shielded|
|Auto-MDIX||Auto-MDIX enables proper operation with either straight-through or crossover cabling|
|Distance||Distance up to 100 meters (328 feet) as per IEEE 802.3|
|Maximum Frame Size||1522 bytes|
|VDSL – Interlink|
|RJ45, BNC, Terminal Block||
Ethernet Extenders must be connected in pairs using unconditioned wire. Circuits that run through signal equalization equipment are not permitted.
TIP and RING are polarity insensitive. Surge suppression of 400 volts between TIP and RING. Choice of RJ45, BNC or terminal block models for VDSL link connector:
|VDSL2 Line Rate/Reach||Actual distance and rates experienced will depend on condition and gauge of wire used.
This Rate/Reach table applies to 24 AWG (0.5 MM) twisted pair wiring on RJ45 (RJ) and terminal block (TB) models.
|Compatible chassis||Module occupies a single slot in MCR1900 or MCR200 chassis|
|Power / TST||This green LED is turned on when power is applied to the Ethernet Extender. Otherwise it is off. The LED will blink when in Loopback test mode.|
|CO - Local||Ethernet Extender is operating in CO VDSL mode|
|CPE - remote||Ethernet Extender is operating in CPE VDSL mode|
|ILNK||Indicates Link Status and activity on the Interlink (VDSL) port|
|ETH||Indicates link status and activity on Ethernet port.|
|Switches – On-board PCB|
|Rate/Reach||Two switches enable the user to select the right balance between speed and distance for their environment.|
|Signal to Noise Ratio||Selectable Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) of 6dB or 9dB. The higher SNR number provides better impulse noise protection but lowers performance.|
|Auto-Negotiation (802.3u)||Enabled (Default) - The Ethernet Extender uses 802.3u Auto-negotiation on the 10/100Base-TX interface. It is set to advertise full duplex.
Disabled - The Ethernet Extender sets the port according to the position of the speed and duplex switches.
|Link Mode||Standard (Default) – The 10/100Base-TX link remains active independent of the state of the Ethernet link on its remote peer.
Link Pass-Through- state of the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet connection is “passed through” or propagated across the VDSL link to the 10/100Base-TX Ethernet link on its remote Ethernet Extender peer. This enables a managed switch to report the state of the remote device to its network management system.
|Interlink Fault Feedback||Enabled - A loss of VDSL link will drop the 10/100 Ethernet port on each end until the link recovers
Disabled (Default) – The state of the VDSL link is not propagated to the 10/100Base-TX port
|Loopback||Enabled - The VDSL interlink will perform a loopback function, retransmitting all received Ethernet frames back to its peer.
Disabled (Default - Up)
|Set Ethernet Speed||When Auto-Negotiation switch is disabled, fixed speed can be set to 100 (Default) or 10|
