Multi Mode Gigabit Ethernet to Fiber Optic Converter

Model ETH-FIBER-MM-2

Category: Fiber Optic Media Converters

DESCRIPTION

The ETH-FIBER-MM-2 is a bi-directional externally powered Gigabit Ethernet to Multi Mode Fiber Optic Converter which converts a standard 10/100/1000M Ethernet to Multi Mode SC or ST connector type fiber optic link. A data direction auto-turnaround feature automatically enables the Ethernet transmit and receive data signals when data is present, avoiding the need for software drivers, and making the device fully plug-and-play. The ETH-FIBER-MM-2 supports straight-through (MDI) or crossover (MDX) cable configurations. The ETH-FIBER-MM-2 has a RJ45 connector for the 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, and either an ST type or SC type connector for the fiber optic link. The unit extends the maximum distance of any 10/100/1000 Ethernet signal up 1.2 miles (2.0 km) using MM fiber optic cable. The unit is enclosed in a rugged steel housing. An external power supply is included.

Using one ETH-FIBER-MM-2 unit:

  1. Perform a loop back test on one unit:
    1. Plug the power connector to the converter.
    2. Connect the Ethernet port to the PC.
    3. Connect the fiber optic in to fiber optic out.
    4. Running a Ethernet Analyzer program on the PC, send ASCII characters to the ETH-FIBER-MM-2 converter from one PC port, and check that the characters are received at the same PC port. This tests that the transmit and receive functions of the ETH-FIBER-MM-2 unit is working properly.

     

Using two ETH-FIBER-MM-2 units:

  1. Check that all connections comply with the connection diagrams.
  2. Perform a loop back test on two units:
    1. Plug the power connector to both converters.
    2. Connect the fiber optic in of one converter and fiber optic out to the other converter.
    3. Connect the fiber optic out of one converter and fiber optic in of the other converter.
    4. Connect the Ethernet connections to two Ethernet ports.
    5. Running the Ethernet Analyzer programs on both PCs, send ASCII characters to the ETH-FIBER-MM-2 converter from one PC port, and check that the characters are received at the 2nd PC port. Repeat the test in the opposite direction. This tests that the transmit and receive functions of both ETH-FIBER-MM-2 units are working properly.
