Media Converters and Smart Media Converters

Mencom offers a wide range of media converters from entry-level media converters to smart media converters that support redundant-power and automatic speed negotiation, so the transitions from copper-based networks to fiber-based networks can be smooth and trouble-free. Mencom media converters and smart media converters provide reliable solutions to all conversions between single-mode or multimode fiber optics to Ethernet/serial and they are suitable for operating temperature range from -10 to +70° C and the serial-to-fiber media converters have an optional temperature range between -40 and +70° C.

The industrial fast Ethernet media converters provide industrial media conversion between 10/100BaseT(X) and 100Base FX (SC connector); connection options include multimode SC connector (2km), and single-mode SC connector (30km). This series is designed for harsh industrial environments and compliant with FCC/CE standards. They also provide auto MDI/MDI-X, auto-negotiation, and link fault pass-through (LFP) function and one five-pin DIP switch to configure the functions, such as the TX_Duplex mode, FX_Duplex mode, speed mode and LFP.

The industrial gigabit media converter series provides seamless media conversion from 10/100/1000BASE-T(X) RJ45 to Fiber (available in both SC and SFP fiber connectors). Available in with one or two fiber ports, its two-port version provides additional fiber repeater Feature, or media extension in 100/1000 BASE-(F)X. This series comes with a DIP switch to configure or enable the more advanced functions including the fiber speed, fiber auto-negotiation, link fail pass-through, terminal/center device, power saving, jumbo frame, and cut-through forwarding to reach the maximum flexibility.

The industrial serial-to-fiber media converter series provide industrial conversion between 100BaseFX (SC or ST connector), RS-232, and RS-422/485; connection options include multimode SC/ST connector (2km), and single-mode SC/ST connector (30km). The serial-to-fiber media converter is designed for harsh industrial environments and complies with FCC/CE standards.
