Black Box Explains…Fiber Ethernet adapters vs. media converters.
Product Data Sheets (pdf)...USB Director and USB Solo
When running fiber to the desktop, you have two choices for making the connection from the fiber to a PC: a fiber Ethernet adapter or a media converter like our... more/see it nowMicro Mini Media Converter.
Fiber Ethernet adapters:
Create no desktop clutter, but the PC must be opened.
Powered from the PC—require no separate power provision.
Require an open PCI or PCI-E slot in the PC.
Can create driver issues that must be resolved.
May be required in high-security installations that require a 100% fiber link to the desktop.
No need to open the PC but can create a cluttered look.
Powered from an AC outlet or a PC’s USB port.
Don’t require an open slot in the PC.
Plug-and-play installation—totally transparent to data, so there are no driver problems; install in seconds.
The short copper link from media converter to PC may be a security vulnerability. collapse

Black Box Explains...DIN rail usage.
DIN rail is an industry-standard metal rail, usually installed inside an electrical enclosure, which serves as a mount for small electrical devices specially designed for use with DIN rails. These... more/see it nowdevices snap right onto the rails, sometimes requiring a set screw, and are then wired together.
Many different devices are available for mounting on DIN rails: terminal blocks, interface converters, media converter switches, repeaters, surge protectors, PLCs, fuses, or power supplies, just to name a few.
DIN rails are a space-saving way to accommodate components. And because DIN rail devices are so easy to install, replace, maintain, and inspect, this is an exceptionally convenient system that has become very popular in recent years.
A standard DIN rail is 35 mm wide with raised-lip edges, its dimensions outlined by the Deutsche Institut für Normung, a German standardization body. Rails are generally available in aluminum or steel and may be cut for installation. Depending on the requirements of the mounted components, the rail may need to be grounded. collapse
