485 Series | Repeater and Cross-conversion

Extension and format conversion of digital signals

The highly-flexible Draco vario Repeater family provides the extension of digital signals and cross-conversion between Cat X and fiber cables.


The installation of repeaters at intervals within a signal path extends the distance the signal can be transmitted to any required distance.

Cross Repeater
The Draco vario Repeater family incorporates cross-conversion between Cat X and fiber cables. Signals available on a Cat X network may be converted to fiber for transmission and converted back to Cat X at the receiver (or vice-versa). This is useful in bridging buildings with copper-based networks that are located some distance apart.

General information
The Draco vario Repeater family features bidirectional data ports: Cat X and fiber ports are individually configurable as inputs or outputs. No additional configuration is required. Single- and dual-repeater board versions are available for installation in Draco vario frame enclosures. Both device options can be deployed between extenders and between extender and matrix.
