Part of the CopperLink CL1314R Series, the CL1314MDE is an in-line auto-rate Ethernet Extender, used to drop-add Ethernet links to multiple remote locations that are beyond the 328 foot (100-meter) Ethernet range limit.
The CL1314MDE Multi-Drop Ethernet Extender, used in conjunction with the CL1314R makes Ethernet extension a breeze. The MDE series of Ethernet Extenders allows users to replace their legacy serial coms with cost-effective Ethernet (IP) that is easy and inexpensive to set up. Featuring plug-and-play installation, the CL1314 MDE leverages existing copper twisted-pair infrastructure to interconnect Ethernet devices and networks at moderate speeds over long distances. The MDE Extender not only allows multi-drop functionality but also serves a repeater function doubling your maximum distance at every hop.
Operating over standard 0.5 mm (24 AWG) voice-grade wiring, the CL1314 MDE delivers speeds up to 5.7 Mbps and extends Ethernet connections across distances ranging from 2.7 to 6.9 km (1.7 to 4.3 miles) per hop. Whether you need connect to a remote offices, kiosks, guard stations, train stations, digital sensors or IP cameras—Patton Ethernet Extenders offer the industry's optimum combination of speed and distance. Patton's CopperLink Ethernet Extenders ensure hassle-free set-up and operation, while achieving the highest possible line rate for the required distance and electro-magnetic environment. Users "hard-set" the desired line rate via DIP switches or console Telnet.
The CL1314 MDE 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 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.
Operating at layer 2 of the OSI model (data link layer), the CL1314MDE 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.
The CL1314MDE is a model from the CopperLink1314R Series. Designed to easily and inexspensively connect remote LANs over single twisted-pair copper cable in harsh environments, CL1314R Series Ruggedised Ethernet Extenders can interconnect over very long ranges of up to 6.9 kilometres (4.6 miles) and operate reliably over extended temperature ranges.
