Ethernet media converters for ­basic requirements

October 2015 Fieldbus & Industrial Networking

The new class 1000 Ethernet media converters from Phoenix Contact are designed for industrial applications with basic requirements. They offer a simple and cost-effective entry into optical transmission technology.

Data transmission via fibre optics optimises Ethernet applications in terms of performance and transmission reliability. Other benefits are the higher range as well as electrical isolation. The compact units in robust metal housings bridge distances of up to 9,6 kilometres. Multi-mode glass fibres are used, with optional 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 firmly set. Besides numerous diagnostics LEDs, the media converters are equipped with Link Fault Pass-through (LFP) function. This ensures permanent and continuous monitoring of the connection. In the event of a connection loss, redundancy mechanisms can take over operation immediately.
