1000FX Media Converter
Flexible, Reliable and Industrial-grade Network Distance Extension Solution
The IGT-1205AT from Planet Technology is an industrial Gigabit Media Converter that offers non-blocking wire-speed performance. This unit permits incredible versatility for the extension of Gigabit Ethernet in demanding industrial environments. The unit features a single 10/100/1000Base-TX RJ-45 copper and two 100/1000Base-XX SFP fiber optic interfaces. In addition, it is housed in a durable IP30 rugged strong case that features redundant power system. The IGT-1205AT is ideal for those seeking to deploy a surveillance system and enabling enhanced wireless service in environments with harsh conditions, ranging in temperatures -40 to 75°C.
Fiber-Optical Link Capability Enables Extension of Network Deployment
The two SFP slots on the unit are compatible with 100Base-FX or 1000Base-SX / LX / WDM through SFP (Small Form Factor Pluggable) fiber-optic transceivers. The unit’s fiber optic uplink ensures that the throughput to all nodes and the Gigabit Ethernet distance has the ability to be extended to 550 meters with Multi-Mode fiber cable and up to 10/20/30/40/50/70/120 kilometers with Single-Mode fiber cable. The Fast Ethernet distance also can be simply extended to 2km with Multi-Mode fiber cable up to 20/40/60 kilometers. These units are ideal for applications data or distribution centers.
Adjustable 3-Port Switch Mode or 2 Fiber Redundant Mode
Through the unit’s built-in DIP switch, the two SFP fiber interfaces of the unit can be simply configured as Ethernet switch mode or Fiber Redundant mode. With the unit’s Ethernet switch mode, it operates in Store-and-Forward mechanism with optimal performance. When in the 2-port Fiber redundant mode, the unit offers quick fiber redundancy of link for highly critical Ethernet applications. The unit’s redundant mode supports the auto-recovering function. If a packet’s destination port is link-down, it will forward the packet to the other port of the backup pair.
The IGT-1205AT features a compact IP30 metal case, which makes deployment in demanding environments simple. With IP30 industrial case protection, the IGT-1205AT is resistant against the environment or electrical surges that can be experienced in various industries. Since the unit operates efficiently under temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C, the unit can be placed in almost any difficult environment. The IGT-1205AT also permits DIN or rail mounting.
Dependable Power System
The IGT-1205AT features DC power input connectors for the installation of redundant power supply.The unit also features a integrated power converter voltages ranging from 12 to 48VDC or 24VAC for worldwide applications that need double or backup power inputs.
