Ethernet Extender, Data Only, 2-Pack Kit  

Get economical last-mile Ethernet extensions over twisted-pair cable.


Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • The low-cost solution for campus network expansions and delivering last-mile Ethernet.
  • Breaks Ethernet distance limitations and extends your Ethernet network 4250 feet (1.3 km) at speeds up to 16.67 Mbps.
  • Uses inexpensive 2-wire, 24 AWG twisted-pair cable instead of expensive fiber cable.
  • Not backwards compatible with the earlier version of this product (LB200A-R2).

  • Further Details

  • Switch-selectable rates up to 16.67 Mbps.
  • Two 10/100BASE-TX ports.
  • Features autosensing 10/100BASE-T operation.
  • Supports full- and half-duplex operation.
  • Provides transparent bridging and passes 802.1Q (VLAN) packets.
  • Ideal for always-on Internet access, real-time bidirectional video streaming, and various multimedia applications.
  • Sold in pairs—use one as a customer premise line driver and one as a central office line driver.

  • Extend Ethernet at high speeds over existing copper wire with the Black Box® brand Ethernet Extender.

    The extender provides up to 16.67 Mbps of high-speed Ethernet services between LANs or other network-enabled devices over a single twisted-pair cable. You receive two boxes: One is configured as the customer premise line driver, the other as the central office line driver.

    This variable-rate standalone line driver enables you to select various asymmetrical and symmetrical rates to satisfy a broad range of applications. Typical uses in symmetrical mode include videoconferencing, interactive video, and telecommuting. Asymmetrical mode is used primarily for delivering Internet service.

    The extender operates over the twisted-pair phone cable you already have installed, so you don't have to recable with CAT5e or fiber cable.

    The driver is easy to install, too. Simply plug and play, and use the handy DIP switches to select mode and speed.

    The extender must be used in pairs and requires one unit for the local site (or central office) and one unit for the remote site (customer premise) for proper operation. Both units are included.

    What's included:
  • (1) remote unit (CP)
  • (1) local unit (CO)
  • (2) power supplies with (2) power clips (U.S. and EU)
