Chassis and Mounting Options
All iConverter modules are hot-swappable and can be installed in a 19-Module (2U) or 5-Module (1U) rack-mountable chassis with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies, providing a scalable solution that is space-efficient and cost-effective. They can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18-60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC/DC powered chassis.
iConverter Chassis Features:
- High-density and small form factors provide cost-effective Central Office or Customer Premises deployments
- Redundant, hot-swappable power supplies provide load balancing for cooler operating temperature and extended lifetimes
- Ethernet backplanes provide connectivity to adjacent modules for network expansion
- Scalable design provides a cost-effective upgrade path as network configurations change and grow
- Management up to 16 daisy-chained chassis with a single IP address
- NEBS Level 3, UL and CE Compliant
- Wide temperature ranges of -40 to 60°C
Management is achieved when an iConverter management module is inserted into an iConverter chassis, enabling the reporting of the voltage, current and temperature of each power supply. Any out-of-range violation can be set to trigger an SNMP management trap to allow quick corrective maintenance.
iConverter 19-Module Managed Chassis
Modules not included
The 2U high, iConverter 19-Module managed chassis can be mounted in a 19 or 23-inch rack and features three hot-swappable redundant power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies can be used in any combination. The power supplies operate in load-sharing mode for fault tolerance.
The high density 19-Module chassis features an Ethernet backplane for connectivity between each two adjacent module slots, and is ideal in the core of the enterprise, in a Central Office (CO), or in Point of Presence (POP) applications where reliability and space are critical.
iConverter 5-Module Managed Chassis
Modules not included
The 1U high, iConverter 5-Module managed chassis can be mounted in a 19 or 23-inch rack and features redundant power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies are hot-swappable and can be used in any combination. The power supplies operate in load-sharing mode for fault tolerance.
The 5-Module chassis features an Ethernet backplane for connectivity between adjacent module slots, and is ideal for distributing fiber and copper from Point of Presence (POP), Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) and Multi-Tenant Unit (MTU) locations.
iConverter 2-Module Managed Chassis
The 2-Module Managed Power Chassis features a single internal universal AC or 18-60VDC power supply and can be remotely managed In-Band or Out-of-Band. When managed In-Band, it requires no connections to another switch or customer equipment, which provides a clear demarcation point between the service provider’s equipment and the customer’s equipment.
The 2-Module chassis features an Ethernet backplane for connectivity between its two module slots. The 2-Module chassis is available with a Dying Gasp trap feature (which requires a management module) and is ideal for edge and Customer Premises applications.
iConverter 1-Module Redundant-Power Chassis
The iConverter 1-Module Redundant Power Chassis is designed for mission-critical Enterprise applications and demarcation of Ethernet services at the Customer Premises. The chassis supports multiple power sources, configurable 10/100 Ethernet ports and a wide variety of alarm options—making it ideal for locations where power is unavailable or costly to install, or where the monitoring of external events is required.
Power source options include load-sharing combinations of Power over Ethernet (PoE), 9-24VDC and 24-60VDC. When used as a PoE device, the chassis is powered through one of the 10/100 network ports from a Power Source Equipment (PSE) such as a switch or a Mid-Span power injecting device.
The two, fully-configurable 10/100 UTP ports connect to the installed iConverter module via the Ethernet backplane, and support auto-negotiation, half/full-duplex and auto-crossover. The four optional contact-closure alarm sensors can be used to monitor and generate traps for UPS battery status or other external devices that monitor moisture, temperature, or opening and closing of enclosure doors.
iConverter 1-Module Chassis
The 1 inch high, iConverter 1-Module chassis uses an external AC/DC power adapter, is tabletop or wall-mountable and supports a single iConverter module. It is ideal for managed or unmanaged Fiber-to-the-Premises or Fiber-to-the-Desktop applications where flexibility and modularity are important.
1U 19" Rack-Mount Shelf
The 1U 19" Rack-Mount Shelf accommodates iConverter standalone Network Interface Devices and media converters, the iConverter 1-Module chassis and the iConverter 2-Module chassis. The shelf supports a variety of mounting configurations.
Universal DIN Rail Mounting Bracket
The Universal DIN Rail Mounting Bracket provides DIN Rail mounting capabilities for the iConverter standalone and 1-module chassis, FlexPoint converters and FlexPoint converters with DC Adapters. This kit contains all of the necessary components to provide DIN Rail mounting for four different mounting orientations.
