Signamax SFP Dual Rate Fiber Converter

Reference#: 67803
Item#: 065-1196SFPDR


Signamax Connectivity Systems' new 065-1196SFPDR 10/100/1000BaseT/TX to 100/1000Base SFP Switching Media Converter provides a flexible and intelligent solution for long distance connections between legacy 10BaseT and 100BaseTX networks and either 1000Base Gigabit Ethernet fiber or 100Base fiber networks. The built-in 10/100/1000 switch enables the fiber cable connection to operate at 1000 Mbps connected to either a 10BaseT, 100BaseTX, or a 1000BaseT network, while remaining completely 1000BaseSX/LX OR 100BaseFX/BX standard-compliant for the fiber optic connection. The fiber connection can also operate in full duplex mode whether the RJ-45 port is connected to a full duplex switch or a half duplex legacy hub.

The 065-1196SFPDR dual-rate fiber Media Converter includes: extremely low latency of =1.6 μs, FIFO, worst case; the ability to force the RJ-45 port to 100Base or 10Base full or half-duplex modes; the ability to provide auto-negotiation on the 1000Base fiber port or forced full-duplex mode where required; and the enabling or disabling of the Link Fault Signaling feature. Link Fault Signaling provides a means of propagating a link drop on either port of the media converter to the other port, enabling a connected managed switch to see the link drop and respond to it using Spanning Tree Protocol or another recovery scheme. The built-in switch and its store-and-forward switching architecture performs the network segmentation that allows the maximum fiber distance extension. If you are looking for a media converter with maximum flexibility, look no further than the Signamax 065-1196SFPDR.
