Ethernet media converters for basic requirements

09 November 2015

The new class 1000 Ethernet media converters from Phoenix Contact are designed for industrial applications with basic requirements.

Data transmission via fibre optics can optimise Ethernet applications, in terms of performance and transmission reliability. In addition to a higher range, it also offers the benefits of electrical isolation. 

The compact units in robust metal housings are able to bridge distances of up to 9.6km. Multi-mode glass-fibres are used, optionally with SC duplex or B-FOC (ST) plugs.

Start-up is simplified by auto negotiation and auto crossing. In addition, data rates of 10 and 100 Mbps can be set. Besides numerous diagnostics LEDs, the media converters are equipped with LFP function (Link Fault Pass-through). This is said to ensure permanent and continuous monitoring of the connection. In the event of a connection loss, redundancy mechanisms can take over operation immediately.
