    10/100 Copper Tap


    Quick Facts

  • Tap into your 10-/100BASE-TX network without disturbing network integrity.
  • Support passive monitoring without data stream interference or introducing a point of failure.

  • Further Details

  • Use with 10- or 100BASE-T Ethernet networks.
  • Monitor network traffic, troubleshoot problems, and run test equipment with no interruption in data flow.
  • Leave taps in permanently without degrading network performance.
  • Works seamlessly with network analyzers, monitors, and testers.
  • Regenerates incoming data before transmission.
  • Passes on traffic from all network layers.
  • Monitor both sides of a full-duplex connection.
  • Features separate transmit and reeive channels.
  • A redundant power supply supports the flow of traffic to the monitoring device.
  • If no power is available, network traffic flows uninterrupted.
  • Power supply included.
  • Use a straight CAT5 cable to connect the two network ports to DTE and a crossover cable to connect the monitor ports to DCE.

    Here's easy, unobtrusive way to tap into your network for monitoring and testing. The 10/100 Copper Tap provides a complete copy of the data from a full-duplex copper link to your network analyzer. First, the tap replicates the full-duplex signal from the network. Then, it sends one signal back to the network and the other signal to a monitoring device. The tap operates passively and works regardless of traffic levels.

    With this compact network tap, you can keep data flowing and users working while you get on with your work. Just set it up and monitor network traffic, troubleshoot problems, and run test equipment with no interruption in data flow. Signal integrity is guaranteed! Incoming data is actually regenerated before transmission.

    Use the tap with common network equipment, such as routers, switches, and LAN analyzers. Connect two ATM or Ethernet devices to Ports A and B on the module. Connect a LAN analyzer to the monitor ports. The LAN analyzer can then monitor traffic between the two devices. The tap even maintains network continuity whether or not it's connected to an analyzer.

    Make your job easier with the 10/100BASE-T Copper Tap. It's the most seamless way to tap into networks and keep data flowing!
