Omnitron Flexpoint Converter 10 FL/T

FlexPoint 10FL/TThe FlexPoint 10FL/T is a 10BASE-T copper to 10BASE-FL fibre media converter that provides reliable and cost-effective network connectivity and fibre extension.

The RJ-45 port auto-negotiates the duplex mode of the attached device for plug-and-play installations. The port detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, and features a crossover switch that eliminates the need for a crossover cable and facilitates connectivity to network equipment such as hubs, switches and workstations.

The fibre port operates at 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm, and features ST or SC connectors. Multimode fibre models support distances of up to 5km, and single-mode fibre models support distances of up to 120km.

The FlexPoint 10FL/T supports Link Propagate, which is a fault detection tool that provides a local indication of a remote link loss by disabling the port and propagating the loss of link from one port to the other.

The FlexPoint 10FL/T features descriptions of the LED indicators on the label for easy in-the-field installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power, port activity and link status, speed and duplex modes.

FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a high-density 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.

FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.

The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.

FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fibre connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.

Application Example

A pair of FlexPoint 10FL/T media converters are used to connect two 10BASE-T switches (A) via fibre. A workstation (B) and file server (C) are connected to the network using pairs of FlexPoint 10FL/T media converters. The converters are configured for Full-Duplex operation. In each case, multimode or single-mode fibre can be used, and fibre links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fibre.
