Omnitron iConverter 10T/2

Protel Solutions.co.uk | Omnitron 10BASE-T to 10BASE-2 Managed Ethernet Media Converter

The iConverter 10T/2 is a 10BASE-T to 10BASE-2 media converter that converts between twisted pair (UTP) and coax LANs and joins their collision domains. The iConverter 10T/2 facilitates the connection of a coax segment to a 10BASE-T hub. When using a pair of iConverter 10T/2 converters back to back, they can connect between two 10BASE-T hubs via coax.

The RJ-45 port supports distances up to 100 meter on twisted pair cabling. The iConverter 10T/2 detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, and features a crossover switch that facilitates a straight-through cable connection to a workstation or a hub, eliminating the need for a crossover cable.

The coax port has a 50 ohm BNC connector that supports distances of up to 185m. Per IEEE 802.3 standard, up to 30 workstations can be attached to the coax segment. The iConverter 10T/2 features a convenient and cost-effective cable termination via a termination switch and a built-in line termination.

The iConverter 10T/2 module is hot-swappable and can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rack-mountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC or DC powered chassis.

  • Modules are hot-swappable in 19-Module, 5-Module, 2-Module or 1-Module chassis
  • Management is available with the addition of a management module to the chassis
  • SNMP management via NetOutlook® provides real-time port and module status information, remote parameter configuration and trap notification
  • Commercial (0 to 50°C) and wide (-40 to 60°C) temperature ranges
  • Lifetime Warranty and free 24/7 Technical Support

Management

The iConverter 10T/2 can be used in managed or unmanaged applications. Management provides remote configuration, monitoring and trap notification. Management of the 10T/2 is accomplished by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) in the same chassis.

The Management Module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet, and serial port. The 10T/2 can be managed with Omnitron’s intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook SNMP Management Software or third party SNMP management software. Management via the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

The management software can override the physical DIP-switch settings such as coax termination or enable/disable backplane. Other parameters include module type and model, hardware and software revisions, serial numbers and a user-defined identifier.

The iConverter 10T/2 supports SNMP trap notification for the monitoring and notification of different network events. Specific events that generate traps include module insertion and removal, and port link-up and link-down. Trap monitoring of specific events can be selectively enabled or disabled by the network management software.
