Patton's robust and reliable CopperLink 2300E Light Industrial Ethernet Extender delivers bandwidth greater than 60 Mbps in point to-point topologies. Extend Ethernet segments to IP-enabled devices or remote LANs using existing copper infrastructure. Often used for LRE (Long Range Ethernet), the CL2300 is also an excellent solution for point-to-point connectivity for noisy environments or questionable cable quality.
The CL2300E employs wire-bonding technology to combine up to 4 wire pairs into a single Ethernet connection with superior speed and distance performance. Each pair provides bandwidth ranging from 5.7 Mbps to 15.3 Mbps depending on segment length. CopperLink devices are engineered for reliability and ease of use. In the default plug-and-play mode, installers need only connect the cables and power up. Patton's auto-rate adaptation feature negotiates the best-possible rate and reach for each wire pair.
The six user-selectable line-rate modes and all pair-bonding settings are configurable, so users can control the rate/reach combination for specialized applications. Should one wire-pair fail, the CL2300E will automatically adjust the line rate to ensure a stable connection.
For business-critical networking, Patton's managed CopperLink series offers optimum versatility and reliability at an affordable price.
Even in hot, cold, or humid conditions, the CL2300E interconnects your IP-enabled devices over any existing copper infrastructure.
