The Patton Electronics CL1212 are 168 Mbps Ethernet Extenders with two Ethernet ports. These units are a return to Patton’s classic small form factor with only two Ethernet ports instead of 4 ports, as on the Patton CL1214 units. These are hot sellers, and the CL1212 sets are always in stock at DCE Express. Technical details may be found below.
Here are the various models in CL1212 single Ethernet Port family:
Combining data flows from up to 2 network-enabled devices onto a single twisted pair or coax cable, the CopperLink Model CL1212 can deliver IP traffic up to 1.8 miles (3 km) away—well beyond the standard 328-foot (100-meter) Ethernet distance limitation.
With achievable line rates up to 168 Mbps, the CL1212 eliminates the bandwidth constraints commonly experienced with other copper-based transmission technologies. The Model 1212 is engineered to re-use existing infrastructure previously employed in such legacy applications as alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, CCTV and CATV. Many newer cabling standards are also supported, including Cat 5e, Cat 6 and Cat 7.
A built-in two-port Ethernet switch makes the CopperLink CL1212 ideal for delivering multiple IP information streams over a single cable. At a guardhouse or security kiosk for example, you could aggregate IP data from a laptop and a high-resolution IP video camera for simultaneous transmission over a single Ethernet connection.
A single-port version, the CopperLink Model CL1211 (available by special order) is ideal for applications requiring the enhanced security of a single Ethernet port.
