The FlexPoint 10/100 is a modular 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX copper to 100BASE-FX fiber media converter that provides reliable and cost-effective network connectivity and fiber extension.

The FlexPoint 10/100 features a 10/100 auto-sensing RJ-45 port that adjusts to the highest level of performance supported by the attached device. An override switch provides manual control over the 10/100 operation of the RJ-45 port and the Half/Full-Duplex operation of both the fiber and RJ-45 ports.

When configured for auto-negotiation, the RJ-45 port automatically detects and sets MDI/MDI-X crossover. When configured for manual operation, the FlexPoint 10/100 features a manual switch to provide the MDI/MDI-X crossover.

The fiber port supports fixed-fiber connectors (SC, ST or LC) and Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers, enabling easy adaptability to different fiber types, distances and wavelengths. The FlexPoint 10/100 supports multimode, single-mode, single-mode single-fiber, in standard and CWDM wavelengths.

Manual switch settings and LED indicators with on-the-label descriptions enable easy configuration to legacy devices or specific network requirements. The LEDs report the availability of power, port activity and link status, speed and duplex modes.

FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wall-mounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a high-density 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.

FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, 2-pin DC terminal connector or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.

The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.

FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fiber connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.

In this enterprise campus application example, FlexPoint 10/100 media converters are installed in a 14-Module Redundant Power chassis for high-density fiber distribution from UTP switch equipment at the Network Core. A UTP workgroup switch (A) is connected via fiber with a standalone FlexPoint 10/100 media converter. Another FlexPoint 10/100 converts the fiber to UTP in a fiber-to-desktop application (B). An Ethernet switch (C) is connected directly via fiber to the FlexPoint module at the Network Core. In all cases, multimode or single-mode fiber can be used, and fiber links can be extended up to 120km using single-mode fiber.

AC Adapter Kits (-x): -0 = No AC adapter included, -1 = 110-120 VAC/60 Hz (US plug), -2 = 100-240 VAC/50-60 Hz (IEC plug, no power cord), -9 = 2 pin terminal (non-isolated) connector. For wide temperature (-40 to 60° C), add a "W" to the end of the model number. Contact Omnitron for other fiber options and extended temperature (-40 to 75° C) models. 1When using single-fiber (SF) media converter models, the Tx wavelength on one end has to match the Rx wavelength on the other. Order the appropriate SFPs separately. Visit the Omnitron Optical Transceivers web page.
