The IENet PRO's ergonomic design puts full-featured Industrial Ethernet cable testing in the palm of the operator's hand.
So you want to do everything you can to protect all 20 ethernet cables.
For our example, we will use equipment designed for the "g" standard, a Linksys Wireless Access Point Router, which costs about $70, and two Ethernet cables, costing about $5 each.
Active Ethernet also can protect customer investment in existing installations that were not originally designed to handle power over the Ethernet cable.
This device performed the basic functions of a NAS device--providing storage that could be easily added to a network merely by connecting an Ethernet cable from the network to the drive, turning on power, and running a configuration utility.
The device also allows a designer to implement a non-standard powered device that draws up to 26 watts of power from power source equipment (PSE) with a minimum of 52 volts of input and over 100 meters of CAT-5 Ethernet cable.
Extending 10GBase-T links to cover room-to-room and floor-to-floor distances, and providing power over existing Ethernet cables, should help accelerate adoption of the technology by equipment makers and IT managers who were previously forced to use optical fiber for these applications," said Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group and co-author of the report A Guide to Ethernet Switch and PHY Chips.
Configured as either an endpoint or midspan device, it is designed to extract power from a conventional twisted pair Category 5 Ethernet cable and conforms to the IEEE 802.
