DATA CONNECT 2178HEE Long Reach Ethernet Extender -2PK

SKU: 673 Category:




The Data Connect 2178HEE is a point-to-point Industrial Ethernet Extender designed to operate in harsh environments that efficiently extends 10/100 Ethernet circuits up to 6,232 feet and supports speeds from 1Mbps to 50Mbps using existing crossover pair copper wire. The 2178HEE function sat temperatures ranging from -40°C to 75°C (-40°F to 167°F) and is tested for functional operation @ -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). The 2178HEEwill allow Ethernet connectivity in existing facilities without pulling extra cable. This is the perfect solution to Ethernet on the factory floor where systems have been upgraded from slower serial communications to Ethernet networking.
