Industrial extender communicates over CAT-5 more than 1 km
Aaxeon Technologies’ industrial extender, the SED-1010S, is a high speed RS-232 over CAT-5 extender that transfers data to devices at distances up to 1.2 km. This significantly extends the typical RS232 range of only 15 m. The extender also boasts the use of CAT-5 cabling, a common cabling used in many applications, making it easier to implement and deploy with an already fixed infrastructure.
The unit features an extended operating temperature of -30°C ~ 75°C guaranteeing the device will work in numerous operating environments. It has built in surge protection and can be used without a power adapter. An optional power supply is available for applications that need more power than the host can provide.
