Fiber Optic Media Converter
In Today's systems, LANs are becoming larger and more complicated, people are looking for equipment that is cost effective and flexible and easy to manage, the fiber optic converters play an important role there, they can connect different types of media effectively and seamlessly. ExFiber's fiber optic converters are used in the fiber optic network to transform the signals sent from fiber glass to traditional UTP cables, they are typically used in Ethernet as physical layer networking equipment .EXFIBER offer 10/100 base fiber optic converters and 10/100/1000 base fiber optic converters. The 10/100M converter mediates between a 10/100Base-Tx segment and a 100Base-Fx segment. The 10/100/1000M converter mediates mediates between 10/100/1000Base-Tx segment and a 1000Base-Fx segment. This Ethernet media converter can extend the conventional 10M Ethernet or 100M or 1000M Fast Ethernet to an optional 20Km-120Km distances via the fast Ethernet Fiber-optical Line.
Fiber media converters are equipment, which receives data signals, sent via one media, convert the signals and then transmit the signals into another kind of media. Fiber optic media converters can convert the signals sent from copper cable to signals that run on the fiber cable, they are copper to fiber or fiber-to-fiber conversion devices. There are single mode converter and multi mode converters, for single mode converter, there are dual fiber type and single fiber type which the fiber cable functions both as transmitting media and receiving media, while for multi mode converter, there are only dual fiber types. Single fiber media converters are also called WDM fiber optic converters.
Working distance of the fiber optic converters are different .for typical multimode fiber optic converters, their working distance max is about 2km, for single mode fiber media converters, their working distance can be 20km, 40km, 60km, 80km and up to 120km.
