Serial to Copper Extenders
The PSI-MODEM-SHDSL/SERIAL to Copper Extender transparently extends serial data transmission up to 20 km [12.4 mi] across single twisted pair ( CAT5/6/7 ), coax or any existing copper wiring previously used in alarm circuits, E1/T1 circuits, CCTV and CATV applications.
Long Distance Serial Data Transmission over Copper
SHDSL is the technology of choice for the transmission of digital data over long distance copper wires of a network. Although performance depends on the characteristics of the cable used, the reach of SHDSL is much further than any other DSL technology currently available. In addition, upload and download bandwidth is symmetrical boasting data rates as high as 15.3 Mbps over 2-wire copper and 30 Mbps over 4-wire copper.
The PSI-MODEM-SHDSL/SERIAL to Copper Extender is protocol transparent and supports RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 interfaces. With two SHDSL ports you can easily set up point-to-point, redundant point-to-point, linear and star topology networks.
Two software configurable digital outputs are available for external device alarm generation.
Although these devices are “plug and play”, should additional device configuration be needed during set-up, power can be supplied via a computer USB cable. The easy configuration software provides online diagnostics, logbook function, individual project configuration and saving of project configurations. Furthermore, to provide on-site technicians with quick device diagnostics, the PSI-MODEM-SHDSL/SERIAL has integrated diagnosis functions, a logbook and clearly visible LEDs.
