B&B Elinx EIR Series Ethernet Copper Extenders - Extends Ethernet up to 2600m

Industrial grade, 10/100 Ports, DIN Rail Ethernet Router


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 and EIR-EXTEND-4 Ethernet copper extenders are 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) and EIR-EXTEND-4 (used to connect up to 4 remote devices) are 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).

Speed Distance Up To
1 Mbps 6200 ft. (1900 m)
10 Mbps 4500 ft. (1400 m)
20 Mbps 3200 ft. (1000 m)
30 Mbps 2550 ft. (700 m)
50 Mbps 980 ft. (300 m)
