Paqworks has released the new DDW 100 Ethernet over Copper Extender from Westermo AS.
The DDW 100 is not a router, but a plug and play transparent bridge. The DDW 100 provides the ability to reuse an existing single twisted copper pair as a LAN segment up to a distance of 10Km, at up to 2.3 Mbit/s using robust SHDSL modulation.
The DDW-100 eliminates the need for installation of optical fibre or wireless networks to transfer Ethernet data over long distances.
DIN rail mounting, simple DIP switch configuration, 10-60 VDC and wide operating temperature from -25 to + 70 Deg C make it suitable for demanding industrial applications.
Westermo is the leading manufacturer of industrial data communications equipment in Europe.
