The Patton CL1314 Ethernet Extenders are the designated replacement for the Patton 2157 units.
The Patton engineers have developed the Copperlink CL1314 to work at long range distances in excess of 1 mile. These units are plug and play and feature the built in 4-Port Ethernet switch.
Ruggedized CL1314R versions are available as well as multi-drop CL1314MDE versions. See the product SKU’s below.
Ethernet extension doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. The CL1314 long range Ethernet Extenders open the door to cost-effective Ethernet extension that is easy to set up. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the CL1314 CopperLink Ethernet Extenders leverage existing copper twisted-pair infrastructure to interconnect Ethernet devices and networks at high speeds over long distances.
Patton’s CopperLink Ethernet Extenders ensure hassle-free set-up and operation, while achieving the highest possible line rate for the required distance and electromagnetic environment. Users can let the modems select the best acheivable rate or they can “hard-set” the desired line rate via DIP switches, console Telnet or HTTP.
The CL1314 comes with a built-in four-port, auto-sensing, 10/100Base-TX Ethernet switch that provides automatic medium-dependent interface crossover capability (auto-MDIX). That means you can use cross-over or straight-through cables (whichever is handy) to connect up to four Ethernet devices. The auto-MDIX feature detects the polarity of the cabling on each port, and automatically configures the signaling to match. Absolutely no user-configuration is required.
The CL1314 transparently passes all higher-layer protocols—including VLAN tagging, multicast addressing, VPN pass-through for IPsec, and all IP-video compression schemes. All common industrial protocols are also transparently supported, including MODBUS/TCP and PROFINET IO.
Set-up is easy! Simply connect up to four LAN devices to the Ethernet switch, plug the copper twisted-pair into each extender, and apply power! For simple, cost-effective and efficient Ethernet extension, Patton’s CopperLink Ethernet Extenders are the ideal solution!
