Dedicated Systems Australia offers Protokraft’s Mustang Series Jam Nut TFOCA II Ethernet optical media converters that improve optical network performance and reliability while reducing space and weight requirements.
Protokraft has announced the availability of its Mustang Series of Fast or Gigabit Ethernet media converters with Jam Nut TFOCA II connector interfaces to improve optical network performance and reliability in harsh environment applications.
Protokraft Mustang Series fibre optic Ethernet media converters consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated along with the 10/100Base-TX to FX or 1000Base-T to LX/SX Ethernet optical media conversion circuitry into an environmentally-sealed unit with an Amphenol Fiber Systems International TFOCA II optical connector interface.
Protokraft introduced the Mustang Series of Jam Nut Ethernet optical media converters with Amphenol Fiber Systems International’s TFOCA II optical interfaces for military, petrochemical, mining, industrial or utility applications where significant levels of shock, vibration and extreme temperature ranges are experienced.
These components integrate the functions of Ethernet optical media converters into the shell of a standard TFOCA II optical connector.
The components are designed for use in harsh environments where small size, weight reduction and resistance to harsh environments are valued.
Protokraft’s new Mustang Series of Jam Nut Ethernet optical media converters support both Fast or Gigabit Ethernet and multimode or single mode fibre optic links. All versions are fully compliant with the applicable IEEE or MIL requirements.
- Compliant with IEEE-802.3:2005 Fast or Gigabit Ethernet
- Optical fibre link distances up to 10.0 kilometres
- Operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C
- Shock, vibration and ESD-resistant per MIL-Std-810
- Zinc-Nickel plating meets stringent EMI/ RFI performance specifications
- Aluminium alloy case and connectors are strong, durable and corrosion-resistant
- TFOCA II compliant optical fibre connector interface from Amphenol Fiber Systems International
- Mounts in existing TFOCA II Jam Nut front panel cut-outs
The Mustang media converter's optical transmitters are high performance 1310nm FP lasers or 850nm VCSELs.
The optical receivers consist of GaAs or InGaAs PIN and preamplifier assemblies and limiting post-amplifiers.
Designed to operate in harsh environments, these media converters feature excellent thermal characteristics, high tolerance to vibration and shock as well as corrosion-resistant aluminium housings for exceptional EMI/RFI performance.
Protokraft's Mustang Series TFOCA II Jam Nut Ethernet optical media converters are competitively priced compared to the typical pricing for discrete media converters designed for similar harsh environments.
