Patton Changes the Game for Power over Ethernet
System designers can use Patton’s CopperLink™ 1101 kits to position IP-enabled cameras, phones, lighting, digital signs, traffic devices… in previously un-reachable locations.
CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders… Going the Distance!
GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, USA: Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—is now shipping the
CopperLink 1101 series of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Ethernet Extenders (just in time for the new year).
“The limitations of Ethernet and electrical power often make it too expensive or technically impossible to position devices where they are needed. Patton technology changes all that.”

Patton’s new PoE Extender kits completely change the game for IP-network engineers who design solutions involving IP cameras, IP phones, IP-enabled smart-LED lighting, digital signage, traffic devices, industrial sensors, monitoring devices, flow meters, wireless access points (WAPs), intercoms, sensors, card readers, HVAC controls, PLCs, and a host of other Ethernet endpoint devices.
Now available in water-proof IP67-compliant, outdoor enclosures, CopperLink 1101 PoE Extender kits can extend 10/100 Ethernet and up to 15 Watts of 802.3af (or legacy) PoE up to 3,300 feet (915 meters) to IP-enabled devices using a single pair of common copper telephone wires or coaxial cable.
“The distance limitations of Ethernet and/or the challenges of delivering electrical power often make it too expensive or technically impossible for system designers to position endpoint devices where they are needed,” said Johnnie Grant, Product Manager. “Patton technology changes all that.”
Copper network infrastructure is ubiquitous: most sites have twisted pair or coaxial cabling that was installed decades ago and still works. By leveraging the installed copper cable plant, Patton’s PoE Extenders prevent the disruption, delay and expense AC power construction or new CAT5e cable installation.
Standard PoE specifies 4-wire cabling, yet the CL1101 operates over 2 wires. By leveraging low-voltage copper infrastructure to deliver power the CL1101 eliminates the expense of a high-voltage construction project while enabling All-IP migration and the Internet of Things (IoT).
“Data cables are often buried under asphalt, embedded in concrete, inside walls,” Mr. Grant explains. “It can cost a fortune to replace. Our solution can save tons of money by re-using the legacy cabling versus new Cat5 or fiber. Anyway fiber can’t deliver power.”
In addition to the IP67 model, CopperLink PoE Extenders are also available in commercial and

About CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders
Patton has built Ethernet extenders in the USA ever since bringing the first Ethernet extender to market in the 1990s. Branded LAN-Xtend™, the Model 2111 achieved 2.3 Mbps over single twisted-pair. In 2002, Patton released the award-winning
CopperLink™ 2158 that achieved speeds over 10 Mbps and reached up to 4656 feet (1372 meters). Announcing the
CopperLink™ 2172 in 2006, Patton achieved full-duplex speeds up to 50 Mbps and distances reaching up to 6000 feet (1,820 meters).
In 2010, Patton introduced the industry’s most versatile Ethernet Extender, the
2160, capable of delivering 45 Mbps broadband Ethernet services and reaching distances up to 5.2 miles (8.3 kilometers) or more. Today CopperLink™ Ethernet Extenders are installed and operating in a vast diversity of environments, including
submarines, sports arenas, election systems, and a
rock 'n' roll celebrity museum .
