Description


The FlexPoint 10T/2 is a Half-Duplex 10BASE-T UTP to 10BASE-2 coax media converter that facilitates the connection of a coax segment to a 10BASE-T hub or workstation.

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

The FlexPoint 10T/2 support distances up to 100m using category 3 cable and higher. The FlexPoint 10T/2 detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, and features a crossover switch that facilitates connection to a hub or a workstation.

The FlexPoint 10T/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, polarity reversal detection and correction, 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.
