Elinx EI Series Ethernet Extenders

Extend Ethernet Infrastructure With Existing Copper Wire or Coaxial Cable

Elinx Extenders extend your Ethernet connections up to 8,530 ft. (2,600 m) via coaxial cable or up to 6,200 ft. (1,900 m) over a pair of unused straight copper wire.


The EIR-EXTEND Ethernet copper extender is designed to operate in harsh environments. Functioning at temperatures from (-40 to 75º C), they have been tested for functional operation up to 85º C. Using existing copper wire runs, it allows the extension of Ethernet signals. The EIR-EXTEND (used to connect to 1 remote device) is the perfect solution for installing Ethernet connectivity on the factory floor. Used in pairs, configuration is easy. Configure one unit as the local device, and the other one as the remote device. External power supplies are required (not included).


Elinx copper/coaxial Extenders fully comply with IEEE 802.3 10BaseT and IEEE 802.3u 100BaseTX standards. Two EIS-EXTEND models are required for the Etherent extension (one at each end of your extension points). This product can be used with included power supply or in the EIS-RACK-16, 19-inch rack mount chassis used to house up to 16 EIS2-EXTEND’s.
