Omnitron iConverter 4Tx

iConverter 4TxThe iConverter 4Tx is a compact 4-Port Ethernet switch module and is a member of the managed iConverter product family. The 4Tx is a versatile plug-in switch module that can be deployed in a 19-Module, 5-Module, 2-Module and in a 1-Module Chassis.

The 4Tx supports Half or Full-duplex 10/100Mbps autonegotiation, and features flexible hardware and software controls. Two ports can be controlled by DIP-switches and all the four ports can be controlled via SNMP management.

The 4Tx supports RJ-45 auto-crossover (MDI/MDI-X) on three of the four ports, eliminating the need for a crossover cable and facilitating connectivity to different types of Ethernet equipment. Port 1 features a manual crossover switch.

The 4Tx features Port VLAN control on the RJ-45 and Backplane Ports, which allows complete control of traffic flow between ports. The switch module also supports Port Access Control to enable/disable individual RJ-45 ports. MIB statistics are available for 32 variables per port, reporting a wide range of real-time packet statistics such as performance and operational status indicators.

Benefits Include

  • Conforms to IEEE 802.3, 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX specifications
  • Port VLAN, Port Access Control and MIB Statistics
  • Supports Half or Full-Duplex and auto-negotiation
  • RJ-45 crossover support eliminates need for different cables in connecting to various devices
  • 100Mbps Ethernet backplane ports for connectivity to adjacent modules
  • Multiple 4Tx modules can be installed in the same chassis for high-density port configurations
  • Module is hot-swappable in 19-Module, 5-Module2-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 50ºC), wide (-40º to 60ºC) and extended (-40º to 75ºC) temperature ranges
  • Lifetime Warranty and free 24/7 Technical Support


The iConverter 4Tx can be used in managed or unmanaged applications. Management provides remote configuration, monitoring and trap notification. Management of the 4Tx 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 4Tx 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 DIPswitch settings such as auto-negotiation, Half or Full-Duplex and backplane selection, and remotely configure additional parameters including Port VLAN and Port Access Control. Other parameters include module type and model, hardware and software revisions, serial numbers and a user-defined identifier. The port MIB statistics include transmit and receive packet counts and error counts.

The iConverter 4Tx 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.
