PD-VDSL-MI100 is an Ethernet extender designed for extensive Ethernet applications. It is equipped with an Ethernet port and a VDSL2 port (RJ-45 connector) in a metal housing, allowing easy installation in harsh environments. It is a bridge modem. The VDSL2 technology used allows Ethernet signals to be transmitted over distances of up to 2km via a twisted pair of wires. The PD-VDSL-MI100 supports both symmetrical and asymmetrical transmissions and can transmit up to 100/100 Mbit/s bandwidth. The Extender can be mounted as a desktop model or on a DIN rail using the optional PD-DIN-kit. With the 19" PD-R2 rack, up to 17 individual PD-VDSL-MI100s can be accommodated on 2U.

Video network special features

Differences between VDSL2 and VDSL
These devices support VDSL2. VDSL2 is more robust in transmission than VDSL1/VDSL and is also significantly faster. When using signal cables that have already been laid, the poorer VDSL transmission technology leads to problems faster, especially in video transmission, while the use of VDSL2 devices results in more stable and powerful solutions.

Transmission distance

Maximal distances highly depend on the quality of the cable used. Older or damaged cables can result in significantly reduced distances.Larger vein cross-sections are advantageous, smaller are disadvantageous. The distances listed below refer to cables with AWG24, approx. 0.5mm core diameter.The listed values are indications without guarantee.
The indications mean: Distance[m] / Data rate in downstream[MBit/s] / Data rate in upstream[MBit/s]
300 / 100 / 100
600 / 40 /45
900 / 22 / 19
1200 / 16 / 7
1500 / 12 / 3
