B+B SmartWorx has released several new Ethernet Extender models. The most compact and affordable solution, EKI-1751-AE, utilizes copper wire to extend Ethernet beyond its 100 meter limitation.
It allows users to upgrade to a more industrial design that not only extends the Ethernet network over copper wire, but also can extend the network over coaxial cable. Additionally, two more models have been released that include the capability to remotely power end devices by Power over Ethernet (PoE).
Models EKI-1751PI-M-AE and EKI-1751-PI-R-AE have the same benefits of the industrial EKI-1751I-AE, but also include additional Ethernet ports so more devices can be connected at each end without adding Ethernet switches.
