  • Further Details

    Bring fiber to the desktop, even to very remote locations. This single-strand fiber media converter enables you to make two Ethernet connections over a duplex fiber cable, so you need to run less fiber.

    Black Box® Miniature Media Converters make it easy to bring fiber to the desktop. Just connect a Miniature Media Converter to your PC's copper port with a CAT5e 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 these tiny converters unobtrusively behind your PC.

    This single-mode single-strand fiber converter supports distances of up to 60 kilometers (37.3 mi.) over a single fiber strand. Maximum fiber use plus autosensing 10/100/1000 ports make this an extremely versatile choice for your fiber infrastructure.

    This converter is a Layer 2 media converter. Layer 2 media converters increase network efficiency and reduce network overhead, significantly increasing data throughput. Because Layer 2 media converters are also switches, they incorporate 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports in contrast to the single-speed ports of Layer 1 converters. You can set the RJ-45 ports for autonegotiation or set them for 10-, 100-, or 1000-Mbps speed as well as for half- or full-duplex. The fiber port can be set for half- or full-duplex, too.

    Twisted-pair ports feature autocrossover ports to eliminate the worry of whether to use straight- or cross-pinned cabling. This built-in MDI/MDI-X function determines automatically whether the converter has to cross over between the four pairs on the twisted-pair port's RJ-45 connector.

    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 (LHC021A), or through the optional rackmount PowerTray (LHC018A-AC-R2).


    NOTE: This is a single-strand model which must be used in complementary pairs—use LGC129A-R2 with LGC130A-R2.

    NOTE: The included power supply doesn't work with previous versions of this model (LGC129A).

  • Miniature Media Converter Power Tray (LHC018A-AC-R2)
