EtherWAN’s Power over Link™ Ethernet Extender wins the 22nd Annual Taiwan Excellence Awards

December 17, 2013 Taipei, Taiwan
EtherWAN Systems Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial Ethernet equipment, announces their Hardened 10/100-TX PoL/PoE Ethernet Extender over Copper Wires, ED3538, receives Taiwan Excellence Awards. Out of 1281 contestants, the product is outstanding due to EtherWAN's assured R&D abilities.

EtherWAN's award-winning ED3538, Hardened 10/100-TX PoL/PoE Ethernet Extender over Copper Wires, is a pair of devices that applies Power over Link™ (a.k.a. PoL™) technology, which provides long-distance Power over Ethernet (PoE) solution. The PoL™ product line enables PoE ability by establishing a "Link" between the two ends of a phone cable / coaxial cable, and using CAT5 cables to connect your network and PoE powered device. When a phone cable is used at an end-to-end distance of 300 meters, the receiving end has a guaranteed bandwidth of 100Mbps and guaranteed power of 30W across the link; when a coaxial cable is used at an end-to-end distance of 400 meters, the receiving end has a guaranteed bandwidth of 100Mbps and guaranteed power of 30W.

This innovative solution allows a network designer to connect any PoE powered device to an Ethernet network without supplying power at the end device location, without the dilemma among distance, power, and cost of ownership.

When an application demands long-distance Ethernet packets delivery, this new Ethernet extender model can also be power supplied at both ends, to maximize the transmission distance to 2400 meters, breaking the traditional Ethernet barrier of 100 meters a lot more. When power at a remote location is an issue, PoL™ can be enabled to deliver Ethernet packets up to 1200 meters away.

EtherWAN's PoL™ Ethernet Extenders are designed to meet industrial specifications, capable of operating in high-temperature range, and suitable in extreme environments such as desert zones or Polar Regions. EtherWAN has grown R&D experience in their products against shock, vibration, power surge, and high ESD.
