Amplicon launch of the latest range of industrial managed DSL Ethernet extenders from Moxa. The new IEX-402-SHDSL series
provides point-to-point Ethernet extension across existing copper wires.
Legacy 2-wire copper networks such as RS-485 twisted pair cables and voice-grade copper wires are everywhere in industrial environments; DSL Ethernet extenders can leverage these existing copper wires to extend industrial Ethernet networks beyond the 100 metre distance limitation of copper based Ethernet, as well as offer high data rate transmission.
The IEX-402-SHDSL series can extend to distances up to 8km and support data rates up to 15.3 Mbps, making it a real alternative to costly fibre optic installation. Featuring automatic CO/CPE configuration, Link Fault Pass-through (LFP), visualised management and link quality LED indicators, the IEX series benefits industrial networks in deployment, management and maintenance.
The IEX-402-SHDSL series has been designed for operation in harsh environments; it is enclosed in an IP 30 rated metal housing and can operate in temperature ranges from -40°C to 75°C. The units can be mounted easily on a DIN rail, wall/panel or in a rack mount enclosure with the use of a mounting adaptor. They have also been certified to the EN50121-4 standard for using in wayside rail applications.
