10/100Base Fast Ethernet Media Converters

10/100BaseTX-FX Fast Ethernet Media Converters

The Fast Ethernet fiber optic media converters convert a 10/100BaseTX copper to 100BaseFX fiber to facilitate cost-effective and extended network connectivity over longer distances that exceed the capability of cat5 or cat6 Ethernet cable. Fast Ethernet converters are compliant with 802.3u offer a data transmission rate up to 100Mbps. Media converters play the role of an interface when it comes to connecting two or more different networks. VERSITRON’s 10/100Base TX to 100Base-FX media converter converts an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet UTP electrical signal into a light signal for transmission over multimode or singlemode fiber optic cable. These unmanaged devices allow seamless transmission of data throughout the network utilizing a basic “plug-and-play” design.

How do Fast Ethernet Media Converters Work?

While these converters are often used in pairs to convert a single networking device to fiber, they can also be connected individually to any network switch. This setup allows for extension of the 10/100Base network over fiber no matter the application. Here is the procedure for connecting two media converters to each other:
  • The two converters are placed at a certain distance as per the application requirement and connected with duplex (2-strands) fiber optic cable.
  • Both these converters have two ports each, one for the RJ45 connector and the other one is built-in multimode or singlemode fiber port with ST or SC connectors.
  • One media converter is connected to the IP device and the other converter is connected to the main network.
  • Each of these media converters is powered by an AC/DC transformer.
  • The two fiber ports are linked over either singlemode or multimode fiber optic cables.
  • The RJ45 port receives data while the SFP port transmits.

Beneficial Features of Our Fast Ethernet Converters

Here are some beneficial features of our 10/100 Fast Ethernet “double duty” media converters:

  • Our fast Ethernet converters are capable of 10/100Mbps Copper to 100Mbps fiber conversion over multimode or singlemode fiber cable.
  • Our Ethernet fiber media converters are compliant with IEEE 802.3u Ethernet standards.
