The CopperLink PoE Ethernet Extender kits from Patton Electronics offer the capability to power up and connect remote PoE-enabled digital signage using common copper twisted-pair phone wire or coaxial cable.
This network infrastructure is ubiquitous: most sites already have previously-installed twisted pair or coaxial cabling in place. Much of it was installed decades ago and still works just fine.
Available in commercial-desktop (CL1101) and hardened-industrial (CL1101E) enclosures, Patton’s PoE Ethernet Extender kits can extend Ethernet connectivity up to 3,300 feet (far beyond 328 feet limit for standard Ethernet) while delivering up 15 watts of electrical power to PoE endpoint devices—all transmitted across existing common copper phone wire.These solutions eliminate any need for construction projects to install network cabling, electrical service wiring, or power outlets.
Even high-quality outdoor Cat 5 is more affordable than USB repeaters or AC wire. CL1101 devices can also operate over Cat 3, Cat 5/5e, or Cat 6 cabling.Whereas standard PoE specifies a 4-wire requirement, the CL1101 can operate over a single twisted pair (2 wires) to deliver Power-over-Ethernet and Ethernet/IP traffic over distances up to 3,300 feet (915 meters).Further, when using 24-AWG twisted-pair cabling, these units can leverage multiple wire pairs, bonding 2, 4 or 8 twisted pairs into a single channel to fully-optimize achievable speed and distance for each environment.
The remote unit in these kits does not require a local power source. Even so, it provides up to 15 watts of PoE power to the remotely connected digital sign (or other PoE enabled device). The solution uses network bridging technology to transmit Ethernet LAN traffic transparently to all higher-layer protocols.Because the Patton PoE solution leverages low-voltage copper twisted-pair wiring to deliver power to PoE screen panels, the high costs of contracting and licensing a high-voltage cabling project are entirely avoided. Twisted pair—which is found nearly everywhere—is all that is required to fully power and communicate with digital signage.
Digital Signage Application using the CL1101 PoE Extender Kit

The CL1101 and CL1101E are compatible with the following digital signage products among many others:
Ease of Use
Finally, the CopperLink 1101 PoE Ethernet Extender solutions feature fast and convenient installation with plug-and-play set-up and operation.
When combined with PoE extension technology, PoE allows you to create affordable digital display panel solutions, with nearly negligible installation costs.
Now, with CL1101 kits from Patton, businesses can deploy PoE anywhere without concern for local AC power standards, outlets, plugs, or reliability.Because the Patton PoE solution leverages low-voltage copper twisted-pair wiring to deliver power to PoE screen panels, the high costs of contracting and licensing a high-voltage cabling project are entirely avoided.
Twisted pair, which is found nearly everywhere, is all that is required to fully power and communicate with digital signage.o=k
