What is Ethernet Extender?


Upgrading an access control and/or surveillance system with new systems that communicate using IP technology can be a monumental task. The system has been communicating between devices using serial communications RS232, RS422 or RS485 and the cameras have been connecting over coaxial cable. New cameras, keypads, badge readers and other devices connect using Ethernet which is connected over Category 5 – Category 6 twisted pair wire. Changing the wiring infrastructure can be more costly and time consuming than upgrading the entire system.

 

EtherWAN offers a solution to this dilemma. EtherWAN has developed a line of Ethernet extenders that provide Ethernet connectivity over existing coaxial cable or plain old telephone/communications cable. EtherWAN's ED3501 and ED3541 Ethernet extenders will work whether your cable is 26 AWG, 19 AWG or somewhere in between twisted or straight wire. Using Ethernet extenders is significantly lower in cost than replacing a cable plant and extends the life of your installed infrastructure.

How do these products work?

Plug and play, connect any of the ED3501 and ED3541 on one end of the wire and set the selection switch to Local. Then connect another unit, any of the three, to the other end of the wire and set the selection switch to Remote. Apply power and they will sync up in a few seconds and your running with an Ethernet Link.

 

The same procedure is used for the coaxial units (ED3331 and ED3341). Two of these units communicate with each other providing an Ethernet port at both ends of the cable.

 DON’T CHANGE THAT CABLE – USE ETHERNET EXTENDERS.
