10/100 Mbps RJ-45 Port
The ED3541 Hardened Ethernet Extender has one 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 port (see Figure 2-1).
This port is auto-sensing, auto-MDIX 10/100 Mbps port.
When you insert a cable into an RJ-45 port, the Hardened Ethernet Extender:

Determines whether the cable is a straight-through or crossover cable.

Automatically ascertains the maximum speed (10 or 100 Mbps) and duplex mode (half- or
full-duplex) of the attached device.
After determining this information, the Hardened Ethernet Extender configures the RJ-45 port
automatically to enable communications with the attached device, without requiring user
intervention.
Ethernet Extender Port
The ED3541 Hardened Ethernet Extender has one Ethernet Extender port (RJ-11 connector
or Terminal Block, see Figure 2-1).
Insert the voice grade copper wire between one pair of Ethernet Extenders via Ethernet
Extender port (RJ-11 connector or Terminal Block).
LEDs
The ED3541 front panel LEDs show power and link/activity status. Table 2-1 summarizes the

ED3541 Industrial Ethernet Extender User Guide
Preparing the Site
Before you install your Hardened Ethernet Extender, be sure your operating environment
meets the operating environment requirements in Table 2-2.
Table 2-2. Site Requirements
Characteristics
Requirements
Mounting
Desktop installations:
Provide a flat table or shelf surface.
DIN-Rail installations:
Top hat type 35mm.
Access
Locate the Hardened Ethernet Extender in a position that lets you access the front panel RJ-45 port
and Ethernet Extender port, view the front panel LEDs, and access the top-panel power connector.
Power source
Provide a power source within 6 feet (1.8 meters) of the installation location. Power specifications
for the Hardened Ethernet Extender are shown in Appendix A.
Environmental
Temperature:
Install the Hardened Ethernet Extender in a dry area, with ambient temperature between -40 and
75ºC (-40 and 167ºF). Keep the Hardened Ethernet Extender away from heat sources such as
direct sunlight, warm air exhausts, hot-air vents, and heaters.
Operating humidity:
The installation location should have a maximum relative humidity of 95%, non-condensing.
Ventilation:
Do not restrict airflow by covering or obstructing the top and side panels of the Hardened Ethernet
Extender. Keep at least 2 inches (5.08 centimeters) free on all sides for cooling.
Be sure there is adequate airflow in the room where you intend to install the Hardened Ethernet
Extender.
Operating conditions:
Keep the Hardened Ethernet Extender at least 6 ft (1.83 m) away from nearest source of
electromagnetic noise, such as a photocopy machine.
Stacking
If you intend to stack two or more Hardened Ethernet Extenders, be sure:
 The mounting surface can safely support the stack.
 There is adequate space around the stack for ventilation and cooling.
Installing the Hardened Ethernet Extender
You can install your Hardened Ethernet Extender on a flat surface or DIN-Rail with other
equipment.

If installing the Hardened Ethernet Extender on a desktop, shelf, or DIN-Rail, allow
sufficient ventilation space between the device and the objects around it.

ED3541 Industrial Ethernet Extender User Guide
Connecting to the 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 Port
The front panel of the Hardened Ethernet Extender provides one 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 port
(see “10/100 Mbps RJ-45 Port” on page 12). To prevent ESD damage, follow normal board
and component handling procedures.
To connect devices to the Hardened Ethernet Extender’s 10/100 Mbps RJ-45 port:
1. Insert one end of a Category 5 or better Ethernet cable into a Ethernet port.
2. Insert the other cable end into the Ethernet port of a computer, printer, network storage, or
other network device.
Connecting to Ethernet Extender Port
The front panel of the Hardened Ethernet Extender provides one RJ-11 connector or
Terminal Block (see “Ethernet Extender Port” on page 12). To prevent ESD damage, follow
normal board and component handling procedures.
To connect the Hardened Ethernet Extender’s Ethernet Extender port:
Insert the voice grade copper wire between one pair of Ethernet Extenders via Ethernet
Extender port (RJ-11 connector or Terminal Block).
Checking the Installation
Before you apply power:

Inspect the equipment thoroughly.

Verify that all cables are installed correctly.

Check cable routing to make sure cables are not damaged or create a safety hazard.

Be sure all equipment is mounted properly and securely.
Applying DC Power
1. Connect the DC power cord to the plug-able terminal block on the Ethernet Extender, and
then plug it into a standard DC outlet.
2. Connect the ground connection from the terminal block to the grounding surface.
When you apply power:

All green Link/Activity LEDs blink momentarily.

The green Power LED goes ON.

The Link/Activity LEDs for every port connected to a device flash, as the Hardened
Ethernet Extender conducts a brief Power On Self-Test (POST).
16
ED3541 Industrial Ethernet Extender User Guide
After the Hardened Ethernet Extender passes the POST, the Link/Activity LEDs for every
port connected to a device go ON. The Hardened Ethernet Extender is now functional and
ready to pass data.
If the Power LED is not ON, check that the power source is plugged in correctly and that the
power source is good. If this does not resolve the problem, see Chapter 3,

or intermittent.
Cause
Solution
The Hardened Ethernet
Extender is not receiving
power.
Check the power connections for the Hardened Ethernet Extender at the
Hardened Ethernet Extender and the connected device.
Port connection is not
working.
Check the crimp on the connectors and be sure the plug is inserted
properly and locked into the port at both the Hardened Ethernet Extender
and the connecting device.
Be sure all cables used are correct and comply with Ethernet
specifications.
Be sure all cables used are correct and comply with Ethernet
specifications.
Check for a defective adapter card, cable, or port by testing them in an
alternate environment where all products are functioning.
File transfer is slow or
performance degradation
is a problem.
Half- or full-duplex setting on
the Hardened Ethernet
Extender and the connected
device are not the same.
Configure the Hardened Ethernet Extender and the attached device to
auto-negotiate.
A segment or device is
not recognized as part of
the network.
One or more devices are not
connected properly or cabling
does not meet Ethernet
guidelines.
Verify that the cabling is correct.
Collisions are occurring
on the connected
segment.
Some collisions are normal
when the connection is
operating in half-duplex
mode.
Recheck the settings of the device attached to the Hardened Ethernet
Extender port.
Be sure all connectors are securely positioned in the required ports.
Equipment may have been disconnected accidentally.
Be sure the Hardened Ethernet Extender and the attached device are
using the same duplex setting.
Be sure the Hardened Ethernet Extender and the attached device are set
to auto-negotiate.
Link/Activity LED is
flashing continuously on
all connected ports and
the network is disabled.
A network loop (redundant
path) has been created.
Break the loop by ensuring that there is only one path from any networked
device to any other networked device.

ED3541 Industrial Ethernet Extender User Guide
Additional Troubleshooting Suggestions
If the suggestions in Table 3-1 do not resolve your problem, refer to the troubleshooting
suggestions in this section.
Configuration
If problems occur after altering the Hardened Ethernet Extender’s network configuration,
restore the original connections and determine the problem by implementing the new
changes one step at a time. Be sure cable distances, repeater limits, and other physical
aspects of the installation do not exceed the Ethernet limitations.
Hardened Ethernet Extender Integrity
If required, verify the integrity of the Hardened Ethernet Extender by resetting it.
Auto-Negotiation
The 10/100 Mbps ports negotiate the correct duplex mode and speed since the Hardened
Ethernet Extender is configured for auto-negotiation (this is the Hardened Ethernet
Extender’s default setting) and the device at the other end of the link supports
auto-negotiation. If the device does not support auto-negotiation, the Hardened Ethernet
Extender determines only the speed correctly and the duplex mode defaults to half-duplex.
