Industrial Media Converters
Industrial media converters convert data between twisted pair cabling and multimode or single-mode fiber-optic cabling, extending the distance of a network. They are able to withstand extreme temperatures (-40° F to 167° F) and harsh conditions. They feature redundant power design and boast IP-30 protection capabilities. This makes them a perfect fit for industrial networks. They are commonly used in applications such as building automation, oil/gas drilling and mining.

Managed Media Converters
Managed media converters give network administrators complete control of data, bandwidth and traffic. This lets administrators manage and troubleshoot a network remotely and securely to achieve and maintain optimal performance and reliability. Thus, these converters are most suitable for environments requiring a medium to large-scale deployment of media converters.

Unmanaged Media Converters
Unmanaged media converters are “plug-and-play” converters which are easy to install and troubleshoot. Unlike managed converters, these do not provide the same level of monitoring, fault detection and configuration.
SFP Media Converters
Small form-factor (SFP) media converters are designed for extended IP network applications. They provide one or more open SFP ports that allow the use of the SFP optics. This offers the flexibility of SFP technology for Gigabit Ethernet transmission over optical fiber.
Gigabit Media Converters
Gigabit media converters are ideal for converting between a copper network and a fiber-optic network. They make it simple to extend the distance of an existing network or the distance between two devices. Gigabit media converters allow for bidirectional communication, making them ideal for industrial applications.
