The Data Connect 2178 Coax Ethernet Extender is designed for an Industrial Coax Ethernet Extender application. The Data Connect 2178CEE has a switching architecture with 4 RJ-45 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports and one asymmetric or symmetric High Speed Ethernet port that can be RJ-11 or BNC Connector. Installation can use either BNC or RJ-11 for network deployment and achieve the absolutely fastest data transmission speed possible over existing coaxial cable and telephone wire without the need of rewiring.
The Data Connect 2178 Coax Ethernet Extender provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments like plant floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. The Data Connect 2178CEE can operate in a wide temperature range of -40 to 75°C, so it can be placed in almost any location. The Data Connect 2178CEE is packaged in a compact, IP-30 metal case that allows either DIN or panel mounting for efficient use of cabinet space. The Data Connect 2178CEE has an integrated power supply with wide range of voltages (12~48VDC) that allow for worldwide operability or for dual-redundancy with reversible polarity and an additional switching high voltage option of 100-240VAC and 85-400VDC.
The Data Connect 2178 Coax Ethernet Extender incorporates Ethernet over VDSL2 to transmit the Ethernet format data by using VDSL signaling over the existing coaxial cable or telephone wire. Therefore, the Data Connect 2178CEE is very good for deploying in networks that can use existing coaxial cable and telephone wire to transmit data to the Internet with minimum cost. The Data Connect 2178CEE can adjust to Master or Slave mode via a DIP switch. When the Data Connect 2178CEE master is connected via telephone cable with the other Data Connect 2178CEE slave device, the performance will be up to 99/63Mbps for asymmetric data rate within 200m and up to 28/2Mbps for asymmetric data rate at 1.4km. When the Data Connect 2178CEE master is connected via coax to Data Connect 2178CEE slave devices, performance is up to 99/65Mbps for asymmetric data rate within 200m and up to 31/4Mbps for asymmetric data rate 2.4km. This capability is ideal for use as an Ethernet extender for your existing Ethernet network.
