The N-TRON 302MC-SC Industrial Media Converter is designed to allow the connection of 10/100BaseTX Ethernet devices to your 100BaseFX fiber cabling infrastructure. The 302MC-SC provides one RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX port and one 100BaseFX port. The RJ-45 port is full/half duplex capable, using "state of the art" Ethernet switching technology. The 302MC-SC auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the TX copper port connection, and configures itself automatically. The 100BaseFX fiber optic port utilizes industry standard SC connectors and is configured for full duplex operation. Since the 302MC-SC uses switching technology, unlike most media converters, you can connect your 10Mbps devices today and upgrade them to 100Mbps tomorrow. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match your specific network environment. The 302MC-SC supports up to 4,000 MAC addresses, thus enabling these products to support extremely sophisticated and complex network architectures. The N-TRON 302MC-SC is well suited to convert 10/100 BaseTX industrial devices to fiber, allowing you to take advantage of your fiber based infrastructure and it's inherent advantages. Compared to copper based systems, fiber provides increased noise immunity and longer cable lengths. The 302MC-SC has extended operating environmental specifications to meet the harsh needs of the industrial environment. For cost savings and convenience the media converter can now be DIN-RAIL mounted alongside Ethernet I/O or other Industrial Equipment. The unique compact size provides a smaller footprint, conserving space in the most critical dimension. In addition, as with other DIN-RAIL devices, the 302MC-SC can be panel mounted. To increase reliability, the 302MC-SC contains redundant power inputs. LED's are provided to display the link status and activity of each port, as well as power on/off status.
