Ethernet media converter stretches EMC performance

Keywords:Ethernet? media converter? PoE?

The eCon 3011 from Harting Technology Group is a fast Ethernet media converter designed for industrial environments. It performs signal conversion between shielded twisted-pair cable and multimode or single mode fibre-optic cable, and supports Power over Ethernet (PoE).

The unit is designed to ease the migration to optical-fiber communication in industrial applications where electrical Ethernet data transmission reaches the limits of its performance, allowing users to extend the range and improve EMC immunity. It allows users to replace optical fiber with twisted pair or vice versa.

This fast Ethernet media converter supports fast Ethernet (100Mbit/s), and offers a number of settings. In switch mode, it works in store-and-forward switching mode similar to an unmanaged Ethernet switch. In converter mode, it runs at 100Mbit/s (full duplex) with minimal latency. In PoE mode, it allows power to be distributed directly to a node on the network such as a PoE camera.
