Introduction The 100Base-TX to Fiber Optic 100Base-FX Converter is primarily designed for large, more high speed / bandwidth Demanding workgroups that require expansion of the Fast Ethernet network.
The Converter mediates between a 100Base-TX segment and a 100Base-FX segment, and features both two RJ45 Jack and an ST (or SC) fiber optic connecter which allows it to connect the 100Base-TX network to the 100Base-FX (fiber) network.
When used in point-to-point full duplex connection, the converter extends distance of Fast Ethernet network up to 2km using multimode fiber cable and up to 50km using singlemode fiber cable. Diagnostic LEDs on the converter Provide indication of power, full-duplex, link and data receiption.
Network Cable Supported The connecters and network cables supported by the converter are listed in the following: RJ45: CAT. 5(e) Twisted-Pair Fiber ST (or SC): 1300nm 62.5 / 125, 50 / 125um Multimode fiber Fiber ST (or SC): 1300nm 9 / 125um Singlemode fiber
Installation Connect the power cable to converter before Connecting the power cable to AC outlet.
