Data transmission via fiber optics optimizes Ethernet applications with regard to their performance and transmission reliability. With their robust metal housing, both devices for multi-mode and single-mode fiberglass meet extreme environmental requirements.

High electromagnetic compatibility enables use in switchgear which require IEC 61850-3 or IEEE 1613. The extended temperature range of -40 to +75°C supports use in a variety of applications. The redundant power supply is flexible and covers a wide range from 12 to 57 V DC.

In addition to numerous diagnostics LEDs, the media converters feature the LFP (Link Fault Pass Through) function. This ensures permanent and consistent connection monitoring. Furthermore, Ethernet pass through mode supports very short delay times of just 700 ns, also making the media converters ideal for use in time-critical applications such as PROFINET.
