The Transition Networks E-100BTX-FX-05 is optimal for extending network distance. Installed in pairs, the E-100BTX-FX-05 media converter can extend distances between two twisted pair switches or a switch and a server up to 2 km over multimode fiber or up to 80 km over single mode. The E-100BTX-FX-05 is also used to fiber connect remote devices. Using one E-100BTX-FX-05 media converter, a switch with a copper port can be connected to a switch with an existing fiber interface. The converters will automatically re-establish link when connected to two 10/100 auto-negotiating switches, after the fault condition has been corrected. With other manufacturers’ converters, the user must manually re-establish the link.
The Transition Networks E-100BTX-FX-05 is the base model in this line, the power supply is sold separately. This converter operates under heavy traffic loads without excess heat, so there is no need for a failure-prone internal fan. The E-100BTX-FX-05 includes 100Base-TX (RJ-45) [100 m/328 ft.]to 100Base-FX 1300nm multimode (ST) [2 km/1.2 mi.] conversion. The link budget is 11.0 dB.
