MultiPower Miniature Media Converter, 10-/100-Mbps Copper to 100-Mbps Fiber, 1300-nm Multimode, 2 km, ST   

This tiny media converter is perfect for bringing fiber to the desktop.

LHC013A-R2

Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • Brings fiber to the desktop more conveniently and at a lower cost than installing fiber NICs.
  • Connects Ethernet or Fast Ethernet to fiber optic cable.
  • Compact size—measures just 0.8"H x 1.8"W x 3.4"D.


  • Further Details

  • Autonegotiates for speed and duplex.
  • Powered by a universal AC power supply, a PC's USB port, or the optional rackmountable PowerTray.
  • Auto MDI/MDI-X means you never need to worry about what kind of cable to use.


  • This BLACK BOX® Miniature Media Converter makes it easy to bring fiber to the desktop. Just connect it to your PC's copper port with a CAT5 cable, then connect a fiber cable to the converter's other side. That's all there is to it! Best of all, you can tuck this tiny converter unobtrusively behind your PC.

    The converter not only links 10- and 100-Mbps segments to fiber cabling, it also works as a data rate converter, performing 10/100 autonegotiation on the twisted-pair port.

    For extra versatility, you can power the Miniature Media Converter one of three ways: through the external AC power supply included with each converter, through the optional USB Power Adapter Cable (which plugs into a PC's USB port and is sold separately), or through the optional rackmount PowerTray (sold separately).
