Description


The FlexPoint 10FL/2 is a 10BASE-FL fiber to 10BASE-2 coax media converter. The FlexPoint 10FL/2 connects and extends coax segments via fiber.

No manual configuration is required with the plug-and-play FlexPoint 10FL/2. Connect the fiber and coax cables and the installation is complete.

The fiber port operates at 850nm or 1310nm and features ST connectors. Multimode fiber models support distances of up to 5km, and the single-mode fiber model supports distances up to 30km.

The FlexPoint 10FL/2 features a BNC connector supporting 50 ohm cabling with distances up to 185m. Per IEEE 802.3 standard, up to 30 workstations can be attached to the coax segment. A termination switch provides a convenient 50 ohm cable termination.

Descriptions of the LED indicators are provided on the label for easy in-the-field installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power, port activity and link status, collision and jabbers.

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.

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.





Examples


n the application, a FlexPoint 10FL/2 media converter is used to connect a Turnstile that is located beyond the distance supported by the coax infrastructure. Turnstile can be located in areas such as Mass Transit Stations, Airports, Stadiums, Amusement Parks, Office Lobbies, Ski Resorts and Casinos.

Turnstils App 10fl2

At the head end, a FlexPoint 10FL/T fiber-to-copper media converter is used to convert the copper connection from the network switch to fiber. The fiber cabling extends out to the FlexPoint 10FL/2 that converts the fiber to coax and connects to the Turnstile. The network switch gathers data from the Turnstile, allowing or denying entry.

 

In this second application, a pair of FlexPoint 10FL/2 fiber to coax media converters are providing a 10Mbps Ethernet connection to a remote PLC device. The 10BASE-2 coax connector on the FlexPoint 10FL/2 supports RG-58 50 ohm coax cabling with distances up to 185m.
