Ethernet media converters for harsh environments

Interworld Electronics introduces a new range of Ethernet media
converters from Schmidt Electronics, designed to provide transparent conversion
between copper and fibre networks in harsh industrial or outdoor environments.

The new Ethernet media converters are housed in small rugged multipurpose
enclosures that can be DIN-rail or wall-mounted. Suitable for IP surveillance,
traffic monitoring and security applications in space constrained critical
environments, these media converters support both switch mode and converter
mode operation with advanced functions such as Link Fault Pass-through (LFP) as
well as far end fault functions on the fibre (FX) port and transient
suppression on the RJ45 (TX) port.

The media converters can be powered from an AC or DC power source. Screw
terminals are provided allowing 18V – 36VAC or 12V – 60VDC to be connected
directly to the unit.

The converters can tolerate operating temperatures from -40 to +75¡C to
maintain reliable network connections in harsh environments.

Key features of Schmidt’s new Ethernet media converters include small
rugged enclosure; switch mode and converter mode; DC or AC power support; ESD
protection diodes on the RJ45 port; and extended temperature specifications
