The 2U (3.5 inch) high iConverter 19-Module Chassis has triple-redundant power supplies and can be mounted in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack. It is designed for Enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) applications where fault tolerance and a high-density rack footprint are essential.

The 19-Module Chassis features three hot-swappable, redundant power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supplies can be used in any combination. Omnitron's exclusive triple-redundant power supplies operate in load-sharing mode to reduce the burden on each power supply to extend the lifetime and fault tolerance.

Power is provided to the nineteen iConverter modules installed in the chassis via the chassis backplane. When used with an iConverter management module, the management capabilities include the ability to monitor the voltage, current and temperature of each power supply. Any out-of-range violation can trigger an SNMP trap to allow quick corrective maintenance.

In addition to handling the power and management data for each iConverter module, the 19-Module Chassis backplane allows sharing of Ethernet data between the individual modules. iConverter modules that are installed in adjacent slots and equipped with Ethernet backplane ports have the ability to connect to each other via the chassis' Ethernet backplane and facilitate a variety of flexible network applications including unmanaged, out-of-band managed, in-band managed and multiport configurations.

The high reliability of the triple-redundant power system combined with its AC and DC power options and its ability to hold nineteen converters in a 2U height make the iConverter 19-Module Chassis the ideal choice in the core of an enterprise, in a Central Office (CO) or for Point of Presence (POP) applications where reliability and space are critical.

The iConverter 19-Module Chassis supports the entire family of iConverter fiber media converters. All iConverter modules are hot swappable and support multiple mounting options.

Management is accomplished by using an optional iConverter Network Management Module (NMM2), which is capable of managing up to 19 iConverter chassis using a single IP address. Management can also be accomplished by using an iConverter module with integrated management, such as the 10/100M2 managed media converter. Management can be accessed through a menu-driven command-line interface (CLI), via Telnet or the Serial Console Port, or can be accessed through a SNMP-based graphical user interface (GUI) such as Omnitron's NetOutlook management software.

The intuitive NetOutlook network management software provides real-time detailed port and module information as well as parameter configuration and event monitoring. NetOutlook can be used as a stand-alone application under Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista/Windows7 or integrated with third-party SNMP management software.

Fixed parameters that can be monitored on the 19-Module Chassis include the chassis type and model, manufacturing information, along with hardware and software revisions and serial numbers of the power supplies. Dynamic real-time parameters that can be monitored include voltage, current and temperature for the power supplies.

In addition to all standard iConverter SNMP traps such as module insertion and removal, the power supply modules can generate traps for out of voltage or chassis temperature range violations. All of these events can selectively be enabled or disabled to cause SNMP traps.
