This Industrial MultiPower Media Converter seamlessly and transparently converts 10-/100-/1000-Mbps copper to 1000-Mbps single-mode fiber. It enables you to extend your network over fiber at distances up to 10 kilometers (6.2 mi.) on single-mode cable. As a Layer 2 media converter, it automatically senses and adapts to speed on the copper side for truly plug-and-play operation.
Industrial MultiPower Media Converters are designed for use in harsh industrial environments. When used with DC power, the converters support an extended temperature range of -13 to +185° F (-25 to +85° C), making them suitable for a wide range of industrial applications.
In all, there are three different ways to power a converter: with its AC adapter, using 5 – 50-VDC terminal block power, or via an optional USB Power Adapter Cable, which you plug into your PC’s USB port and is sold separately (LHC021A).
You can even use multiple power options at the same time to provide maximum redundancy and ensure that your mission-critical applications remain up and running. Then, if any one of these power sources fails, the other sources will continue to supply power to the converter seamlessly.
The converter comes with a DIN clip for DIN rail mounting. When installing multiple Industrial MultiPower Media Converters on a DIN rail, use one DC input source, then cascade from one DC block to the next until you reach the maximum current available.
