Omnitron OmniConverter GPoE/SE and GPoE+/SE

OmniConverter GPoE/SE and GPoE+/SEThe OmniConverter GPoE/SE and GPoE+/SE are cost-effective, multi-port media converters that convert 10/100/1000BASE-T copper to 1000BASE-X fibre and support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE and PoE+). Classified as Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE), they can provide power to one or two Powered Devices (PDs) using standard UTP cables that carry the Ethernet data. The OmniConverter functions as a PoE mini-switch, and supports single or dual RJ-45 ports.

OmniConverter PoE media converters provide network distance extension with fibre cabling, and function as PoE injectors that enable powering devices such as IP-phones, surveillance cameras and wireless access points with Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The OmniConverter GPoE/SE and GPoE+/SE support frame sizes up to 10,240 bytes. The GPoE/SE provides up to 15.40W PoE (IEEE 802.3af) per RJ-45 port. The GPoE+/SE provides up to 34.20W PoE+ (IEEE 802.3at) per RJ-45 port for more demanding PDs such as video conferencing equipment, PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras and multi-stream 802.11x wireless access points.

OmniConverter media converters support Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. SFP transceivers enable adaptability to different fibre types and distances, and support Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) technology to increase the bandwidth capacity of fibre infrastructure.

The fixed fibre models support 1000BASE-X over multimode and single-mode dual fibre with ST and SC connectors; and single-mode single-fibre with SC connectors.

The compact standalone OmniConverter media converters can be table top mounted, wall mounted, or DIN-rail mounted using an optional DIN-rail mounting kit. They can also be mounted on a 1U 19” rack-mount shelf. They are available with DC power via terminal connectors or external 100 to 240V AC power adapters.

Application Examples

Security and Wireless

In this point-to-point application example, PoE+ IP surveillance cameras and Wireless Access Points are installed throughout a large facility. A network switch with fibre ports can be used to distribute fibre links from a control room to OmniConverter media converters.

OmniConverter GPoE+/SE media converters provide up to 34.2watts of Power over Ethernet (PoE+) over UTP cables to an IP camera and Wireless Access Point at each location, each of which can be located up to 100m from the media converter.

OmniConverter GPoE/S, GPoE+/S and GHPoE/S Application Example 1


In this application example, a fiber-to-the-desk network is deployed to leverage the security and distance benefits of fiber.

In the main data closet, iConverter, miConverter or FlexPoint media converters can be installed in high-density rack-mount chassis to provide reliable and cost-effective fiber distribution from existing copper network equipment.

Fiber optic cables run to each office, where they are terminated by OmniConverter GPoE/SE media converters. The OmniConverter media converters convert fiber to copper and, provide data and power to the IP phones and video conferencing equipment. They automatically disable PoE power to non-PoE desktop devices such as PCs and laptops.
