New Fast Ethernet media converter remotely manages machines
July 5, 2006 - Korenix JetCon 1302, a 2-port 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX Fast Ethernet media converter, provides extra flexibility for traditional Fiber media conversion. It adopts slim industrial design, small dimensions (HxWxD, 112mm x 30mm x 90mm) and little weight, to save rail space.

The 10/100Base-Tx ports support auto 10M/100M date rate negotiation and auto crossing MDI/MDI-X. The fiber port of JetCon 1302 supports multi-mode SC-type connector with maximum 2 km transmission distance or single-mode SC-type connector with maximum 30km transmission distance.

Heavy-duty Media Converter for Industrial Design
To survive under harsh environments, JetCon 1302 has an industrial-grade aluminum case with IP30 standard protection, and a heavy-duty design suitable for industrial applications (permitted operating temperatures from -10°C to + 70°C, fan-less). Built-in HIPOT 1500VAC and RJ-45 port to port 1500VAC isolation protection provide device protection against abnormal impacts when operating in harsh environment.

Easy installation and Diagnosis
JetCon 1302 is equipped with a 2-pin terminal block to connect power with auto polarity protection. JetCon 1302 can be powered by 18~27VAC or 18~32VDC. For easy diagnosis, port link status/ data rate and power LEDs have been also implemented on the front panel to provide the quick indication of converter operating status. JetCon 1302 also provides one relay output to alarm port break events, which is enabled by the DIP switch.

Along with the fast increase of network developing, the range for the network distribution system has been expanded in high speed. Fiber connection providing a cost effective yet reliable networking deployment solution has been widely installed in the corporate and industrial fields. Finding a networking device to enable those industrial production equipments (e.g. PLC, power meter) managed in remote end via fiber connection becomes a desperate need. It not only save the time for new equipment transition but also maximize the investment by prolonging the working life of equipment.
