By installing PCN InterMax modules between IP automation equipment and the existing serial wiring, the user has transformed the copper wire into a state-of-the-art industrial Ethernet network. It has become a Virtual Cat 5 cable. Intermax supports a wide range of networking architectures including peer-to-peer, multi-drop, and point-to-point networks. It also has a simultaneous dual-protocol transport option that allows legacy serial networks to remain operational, if needed.

Intermax has a speed of 10/100 BASE-T at 2000 ft and can operate from a distance of up to 10,000 ft. Three RJ45 ports per device are available as well as a DIN-Rail mounting. Intermax has a 24 Vdc power supply and can be used in tough industrial environments with an operating range from -20 to 60 C. It is also compliant with UL; CUL; CE; Class 1, Division 2 Groups A, B, C, D (Hazardous Locations); UL 60950-1 2nd Edition; ITE-Safety Part 1; CSA c22.2 No 60950-1-07; ANSI/ISA 12.12.01-2013 regulations.
