Remote control via in-house cables

Remote control via in-house cables

Via copper and fiberglass

Network distant devices easily and efficiently via existing cables.

Network remote communication devices easily and efficiently via any 2-wire cables. Use existing telephone or master cables, for example, to create a particularly economical network for Ethernet, PROFIBUS, or RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 communication.

Install Ethernet or PROFIBUS cables in combination with the extenders to extend the transmission range beyond the corresponding standard and up to as much as 20 km per extender segment.

Your advantages

  • Ethernet­, PROFIBUS, RS­-232/422/485­ communication via any 2­-wire cables up to 20 km
  • Cost savings, thanks to the use of existing copper wires
  • Time savings, thanks to quick and easy startup, in part via Plug and Play
  • Excellent failsafe performance, thanks to path redundancy: point-to-point 4-wire, or in part via ring redundancy

Intelligent Ethernet extenders

IP network  

Ethernet communication via any 2-wire cable up to 20 km

Application description

With the Ethernet extenders, not only can you connect simple point-to-point Ethernet applications, but also extended IP networks of up to 20 km exceptionally easily via Plug and Play.

Any existing two-wire cables can be used for networking. The system can be extended during operation without causing any adverse impact. Automatic topology and data rate detection saves time and money, even as early as startup.

Easy connection and monitoring of extended IP networks

Widespread IP networks  

IP networks can also be created in ring star topologies

Acting as an extender system, the devices not only connect simple point-to-point Ethernet applications, but also extended IP networks.

All extender paths and devices can be easily monitored remotely using a single managed device.

Managed Ethernet extender

  • Alerts issued regarding all system events via SNMP
  • Remote diagnostics via IP: web-based or SNMP
  • Replaceable SHDSL surge protection
    (state monitoring via SNMP)

IP communication via any two-wire cables up to 20 km

IP communication via two-wire cables  

IP communication via available two-wire cables

Existing two-wire cables can be used for networking. The system can be extended during operation without causing any adverse impact.

Basic features for fast startup via Plug and Play

  • No configuration required
  • Time and money can be saved thanks to the automatic topology and data rate detection
  • Flexible use in point-to-point, line and ring topologies

Unmanaged Ethernet extender

  • No separate IP address (no IP address and network configuration)
  • Transparent transmission of all standard Ethernet protocols: EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, PROFINET, PROFIsafe, EtherCAT, KNX and BACnet/IP

Using VLAN to virtually separate critical IP networks and make them secure

Critical IP networks  

Using VLAN to virtually separate critical IP networks and make them secure

In firmware version v5.xx and later, VLAN (virtual local-area-network) can be used to virtually isolate critical IP networks and make them even more secure.

VLAN (virtually/logically separate IP networks)

By setting up virtual networks in the Ethernet extender system, you limit access to Ethernet end devices easily and individually, which increases security throughout the entire IP network. As such, communication is only possible within a VLAN.

Startup without expert knowledge

  • VLAN configuration using a software wizard
