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

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, 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.

FlexPoint 14-Module Power-Redundant Powered Chassis

The FlexPoint Powered Chassis is a 19” rack-mount chassis that houses up to 14 standalone FlexPoint media converter modules. The redundant power supplies are essential where reliability is important, and in mission-critical applications to ensure continuous operation.

Both of the universal AC or DC power supplies are hot-swappable and can be used in any combination. In case of a failure, a power supply can be hot-replaced while the second power supply supports the operation of the chassis.

The power control logic of the Powered Chassis provides load-sharing between the power supplies, increasing reliability and operational lifetime. The control logic provides power monitoring and an LED display for each supply in order to assist in status monitoring, rapid fault-isolation and network management.

The 14-Module Powered Chassis supports any combination of FlexPoint media converter modules which are individually secured and hot-swappable to ensure continuous operation.

FlexPoint 5-Module Rack-Mounting Shelf

The rack-mounting shelf holds up to five standalone FlexPoint media converter modules. Each converter is individually powered in order to provide a low-cost solution in a compact installation space.

FlexPoint DC Power Adapter

Designed for telecommunications and IT applications such as campuses and phone centers that use DC power as a primary power source, the FlexPoint DC Converter allows any FlexPoint media converter to be powered from an 18 to 60VDC power source. Not for use in the FlexPoint 5-Module Rack-Mount Shelf.

FlexPoint Wall-Mounting Kit

When individual mounting is required, the wall-mounting kit provides a convenient way to secure a FlexPoint converter to a wall or a side of a desk. The mounting hardware is easy to use and flexible in a variety of installation applications.

DIN-rail Mounting Bracket

The Universal DIN-rail Mounting Bracket is designed to provide DIN-rail capabilities for the FlexPoint and FlexPoint converter with DC Adapter modules. The kit contains all the necessary components for several different mounting orientations.
