*Basic Multimode 10/100 Media Converter,
850nm, SX, 220m/550m*
The ME-1420-MM media converter transfers data over duplex fiber at 100Mbps (at 850nm) and connects to copper Ethernet at 10 or 100 Mbps while auto-sensing the correct speed. Maximum distance for this unit is 550 meters (1800 feet) when using 50/125 multimode fiber and 220 meters (720 feet) when using 62.5/125 multimode fiber. Distance on the Ethernet side is 100 meters (328 feet) using Cat-5 or better (unshielded or shielded twisted pair) copper cable. The fiber connections are SC or ST and the copper Ethernet connection is RJ-45. A version with an FC fiber connector is available on special order.
The ME-1420-MM is our economy media converter. Its distance capability is somewhat less than the standard configuration ME-3420-MM media converter but the data speeds are the same. It offers the same diagnostic LED’s and physical characteristics. This unit is not compatible with media converters (including GBIC’s) that operate at 1310nm wavelength. A singlemode version is not available
Please Note-- Price is for each unit. Normally two are required.
