Patton’s New PoE Extender Kit Enables All-IP Migration & IoT

CopperLink™ 1101 PoE Extender kits can re-purpose twisted-pair and coaxial circuits to deliver Ethernet plus POE to IoT gateways, IP access points, phones, cameras, digital signs, PLCs, and more.

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, USA: Patton Electronics—US manufacturer of UC, cloud, and IoT enabling solutions for carrier, enterprise and industrial networks—is now taking orders for the new CopperLink 1101 series of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Ethernet Extenders, expected to start shipping late July.

Extending 10/100 Ethernet up to 2,000 feet (610 meters) and delivering up to 15 Watts of 802.3af (or legacy) PoE to IP-enabled devices, CL1101 Ethernet Extender kits avoid the disruption, delay and expense of installing new cabling infrastructure, allowing customers to benefit instantly from the power and flexibility of IP communications.

Operating over existing copper (up to four twisted pairs) or coaxial cable, the CL1101 solution enables All-IP migration and the Internet of Things (IoT) by breathing new life into circuits previously installed for such traditional non-IP applications as RS232/485 controls, alarms, CCTV, analog phones, intercom speakers, and others.

“More often than not, existing data cables are embedded in walls, buried in concrete, hidden under an asphalt road, things like that,” explains Johnnie Grant, CopperLink Product Manager. “It can cost businesses a fortune to dig up and replace. Our solution can save customers tens of thousands of dollars by re-using that cabling versus installing new Cat5 or fiber. Fiber, anyway, cannot transport power.”

The CL1101 enables instantaneous installation of such PoE-compliant devices as wireless access points (WAPs), IP cameras, IP phones, IP door stations, intercoms, sensors, smart-LED lighting, card readers, HVAC controls, PLCs, and more. 

The extended reach means Ethernet endpoints can be ideally positioned exactly where required—which is paramount in such applications as building security, where increased perimeter dimension and expanded spot coverage area are critical.

“Reliability is key,” Mr. Grant added. “These are not reference designs farmed out to the lowest overseas bidder. We know our customers. We understand their use cases and expectations. The CopperLink 1100 series is designed by Patton engineers and manufactured right here in our Maryland headquarters.”

CopperLink PoE Extenders are available in commercial and industrial-grade versions.

Last week, Patton announced its WebWizard configuration tool for SmartNode and other Patton CPE.

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 CopperLink™ 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 nuclear power plants PDF icon, submarines, sports arenas, election systems, and a rock 'n' roll celebrity museum PDF icon.
