How To Extend Ethernet Reach Using an Industrial Ethernet ExtenderDelia Hernandez
Power over Ethernet facilitates the deployment of network applications in locations that do not have electrical circuitry. With the ability to transfer data and power, PoE technology makes it possible to deploy a network in virtually any location. The only downside to PoE is that it comes with a standard 100-meter limitation. This can limit longer range deployments but network administrators can easily bypass the limitation with an Ethernet Extender.
What is an Industrial Ethernet Extender?
An industrial Ethernet extender performs the same function as a standard Ethernet extender except that an industrial Ethernet extender’s hardened design allows for its operation in the harsh environmental conditions typical of industrial environments. Industrial Ethernet extenders double the range of PoE. These units boast a variety of different IP rating codes that are also known as the International Protection Ratings or Ingress Protection Ratings. The first digit signifies the degree of protection against solids or dust, (a rating of 6 signifies complete protection against dust) and the second digit signifies the level of protection against liquids ( a rating of 8 signifies complete protection against immersion.
Surpass the 100m Limitation
The IPOE-E202 offers a cost-effective and quick solution that doubles the standard range of PoE from 100 to 200 meters. The IPoE-E202 is our newest 802.3at/af Ethernet extender that comes with an IP63 rating. The unit features I PoE input and 2 PoE outputs. These output interfaces have a maximum PoE power budget of 25 watts. The Gigabit PoE Extender is designed especially for point to multipoint PoE applications. The IPoE-E202 provides extension over a UTP cable. The IPOE-E202 makes it simple to add additional networking devices without requiring the installation of additional circuitry. The unit offers a simple plug and play installation.
Ethernet Extension for Outdoor Networking Environments
The IPOE-E202 is ideal for extending the range of PoE devices in outdoor environments and support network applications such as PoE wireless access points, outdoor PoE IP cameras, and outdoor PoE IP intercoms for example. The IPOE-E202 features 3 10/100/1000BASE-T weather-proof RJ45 connectors that support auto-negotiation and include 3 shielded RJ45 plugs for direct attach applications. These shielded RJ45 plugs ensure to protect the UTP cable from the elements. The unit is equipped with the industrial protection rating of IP63 which guarantees protection against humidity, dirt, dust, shock, vibrations, heat and cold. The IPOE-E202 also provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and can protect itself from dust and water ingress. The unit can withstand temperatures ranging between -40 to 75 degrees C.
The front panel of the IPOE-E202 helps users monitor the current status of PoE power usage using its advanced LED indication.
