Ethernet extender system for easy networking of extensive IP networks

Ethernet extender system  

Ethernet extender for extensive IP networks

Connect extensive Ethernet networks of up to 20 kilometers with the Ethernet extender system – exceptionally easy via Plug and Play. Thanks to the managed Ethernet extender, unmanaged Ethernet extenders can now also be diagnosed centrally via IP. Messages can be forwarded automatically to the control center via SNMP.

Not only does this combination allow all devices and paths to be diagnosed via IP, it also enables economical networking of extensive systems. Simply use existing two-wire copper cables to network the devices.

The managed Ethernet extender also features integrated surge protection with preventive function monitoring for high system availability.

PROFIBUS extender for copper-based transmission up to 20 km

PROFIBUS extender for paths greater than 1,200 m  

Data rates of up to 1.5 Mbps

You can reach remote PROFIBUS devices via old copper cables with a PROFIBUS extender – with data rates of up to 1.5 Mbps.

Two DSL ports per device permit the straightforward setup of redundant point-to-point or linear structures.

In addition, mixed operation using copper conductors and fiber optics is also possible using a DIN rail connector.

Last but not least, power is supplied via USB cable, which enables device configuration without an external 24 V power supply.

Connect remote stations via mobile network

TC Router for high-speed data connections  

High-speed LTE router

The mobile TC ROUTER from Phoenix Contact enables powerful, high-speed data connections via mobile 4G LTE networks with up to 150 Mbps. This creates a mobile broadband connection for highly flexible site networking wherever a cable-based Internet connection is not available.

One advantage is the wide temperature range from -40 to +70°C, which enables use in infrastructure applications in harsh and demanding environments.

Remote terminal and automation system for simple monitoring and controlling

smartRTU AXC SG with multiple modules  

Control and monitor systems in the field easily

The smartRTU technology platform is a modular remote terminal solution for various fields of application around power grids. It enables the consistent processing and provision of status and event time information. This is realized thanks to default functions and simple parameterization via web interface, making programming knowledge and programs unnecessary.

The modular structure permits a wide range of binary and analog information to be input and output. The data is transmitted along several communication routes with the help of standardized remote control protocols such as IEC 60870-5-101/104 in the monitoring and control direction. In the process, current information security provisions are complied with.

The smartRTU can be optionally expanded by additional devices, e.g., short-circuit and ground fault indicators, via additional communication interfaces.

Protocol converters for remote control technology

Protocol converters convert communication protocols

Monitor distributed stations easily and cost-effectively

Thanks to the protocol converters from the Resygate product range by Phoenix Contact, you can now monitor distributed stations more cost-effectively and easily. Resygate devices convert many popular communication protocols, for example, from the water management industry or energy supply, into modern, standardized remote control protocols. This saves you considerable costs for interfaces in the control system.
