PLANET LRE-101C – 1-Port 10/100TX over Coaxial Long Reach Ethernet Extender

SKU: 4719 Category:



Easy Connection to Ethernet over Coaxial Extender

To fulfill the needs of long distance Ethernet over Coaxial applications, PLANET Technology offers a new-generation Ethernet over Coaxial Converter, LRE-101C. It features 1 10/100 BASE-T RJ45 port and 1 BNC female connector with a compact-sized metal housing, making the placement of the unit convenient. Working well with a pervasive coaxial network, the LRE-101C provides a total duplex data rate of 100Mbps which can extend a maximum distance of up to 2km and expand a small network by using the point-to-multi-point topology. It is ideal for extending the distance and signal conversion by transmitting the Ethernet data from the coaxial cable to another 100-meter UTP cable for any type of IP network device such as HD IP camera, wireless access point, NVR and digital signage.

IP Ethernet over Long Distance Existing Coaxial Cables

PLANET LRE-101C is a Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) solution which provides a quick replacement and smooth migration solution from the existing analog system to a full digital system. A normal UTP cable can only be extended to up to 100 meters, but with the LRE-101C, the distance for Ethernet networking can be extended to up to 2000 meters (6561ft.), which is ideal for the following network applications:

  • Long-distance IP network devices
  • IP digital signage 
  • Cable TV to IPTV
  • Distance video education
  • Electronic billboards
  • Other applications 


If you have coaxial cable in your existing environment, you can install a pair of the LRE-101C very simply without the need to build additional network wires, thus saving costs for network construction.

Easy and Flexible Installation 

The LRE-101C offers two operation modes, the client-side “Slave “and central-side “Master”, making any network applications easy and flexible. The “Slave” or “Master” mode can be adjusted by using the built-in DIP switch. For point-to-point connection, one LRE-101C in “Slave” mode and the other one in “Master” mode must be set up as a pair of converters to perform the connection. This enables the administrator to efficiently manage the network over UTP cable, making long-distance transmission better. 

Daisy-chaining Multiple Nodes

PLANET LRE-101C will give users the flexibility to expand a small area network with BNC T-connector for sharing four nodes per port when needed.

Low Power Consumption

The LRE-101C has a low power consumption of only 1.5 watts when in full operation.

Easy Chassis Installation

The LRE-101C Long Reach Ethernet Extender can be used as a stand-alone unit or as a slide-in module to the PLANET Media Converter Chassis (MC-700 and MC-1500 chassis series). The media chassis can assist in providing DC power to LRE-101C.It can be DIN-rail or wall mounted for efficient use of cabinet space.
