What's special about this 10/100Base T/TX Ethernet extender?

  • Converts preexisting voice-grade copper wire into a high-speed full duplex data connection to provide quality, long distance networking  with speeds of 30Mbps at 1,960 feet
  • Easy to install and operate, this Ethernet extender is designed to work in pairs, by utilizing a single DIP switch to configure one unit near the Ethernet circuit to local, and the other unit to remote operation, providing fast and simple media conversion
  • Clearly labeled LED indicator lights on front panel allow the user to monitor and troubleshoot data transfer speeds without using expensive or specialized testing equipment
