The iConverter 5-Module Chassis is designed for Enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) applications where fault tolerance and reliability are essential. The 1U (1.75 inch) high iConverter 5-Module Chassis has redundant power supplies and can be mounted in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack.

The 5-Module Chassis features two hot-swappable redundant power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supplies are available. The 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 up to five iConverter modules 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 5-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 multi-port configurations.

The high reliability of the redundant power system combined with its AC and DC power options and its ability to hold five converters in a 1U height make the 5-Module Chassis the ideal choice for Customer Premises (CPE), multi-tenant (MTU) or for Point of Presence (POP) applications where reliability and space are critical.

The iConverter 5-Module Chassis supports the entire family of iConverter fiber media converters. All iConverter modules are hot-swappable and support multiple mounting options. In addition to the 5-Module Chassis, they can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U, 3.5 inch high) space-saving rack-mountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with triple redundant AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supplies, in a 2-Module AC or 18-60VDC power chassis or in a 1-Module AC power chassis.


Management provides remote configuration, monitoring and trap notification. Management of the chassis and modules is accomplished by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Device (NID) in the same chassis.

The Management Module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet and serial port. The chassis and modules can be managed with Omnitron’s intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook SNMP Management Software or third party SNMP management software. Management via the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

Fixed parameters that can be monitored on the 5-Module Chassis include the chassis type and model, manufacturing information, along with hardware and software revisions and serial numbers of the power supplies.

In addition, the power supply modules can generate SNMP traps for out of voltage or chassis temperature range violations. All of these events can selectively enabled or disabled to generates SNMP traps.
