The miniature miConverter 10/100 PoE/D is a rate-switching 10/100 RJ-45 copper to 100BASE-X fiber media converter that can be powered with Power over Ethernet (PoE) when connected to PoE switches and midspans. It can also be powered with DC power or AC power with an external power adapter. The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D miniature Ethernet media converters provide cost-effective copper-to-fiber connectivity solutions. Due to their size, portability, and low power consumption, they are ideal for fiber-to-the-desktop/ laptop under the desk deployments and mission-critical field diagnostic applications.

The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D features fixed fiber connectors and Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. ST, SC and LC fixed fiber connectors support multimode, single-mode, and single-mode single-fiber. 100BASE-X SFP transceivers enable adaptability to different fiber types and wavelengths, including Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) wavelengths to increase the bandwidth capacity of fiber infrastructure.

The RJ-45 port can auto-negotiate by detecting the speed and duplex-mode of the connected device. Upon connection to the UTP device, the RJ-45 port speed adjusts to either 10Mbps or 100Mbps, and the duplex-mode adjusts to either Full-Duplex or Half-Duplex. Auto-crossover enables the connection to workstations (MDI port) or hub/switches (MDI-X port) without requiring a crossover cable.

DIP-switches enable manual configuration of the RJ-45 port speed and duplex modes, and configuration of Link Modes (fault-detection capabilities) that enable in the identification and isolation of link failures.

Diagnostic data is provided through front-panel LED indicators that assist in network installation and maintenance. The LEDs display the availability of power, port activity, link status, and the speed and duplex modes of the RJ-45 port.

The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D features power redundancy with AC or DC external power options when used with PoE powering. AC power adapter is available in US, Universal and Country/Region specific models. Country/ Region specific models feature optional interchangeable connectors, allowing for compatibility with electrical outlet types found around the world. DC power up to 60VDC is available with a terminal connector option.

The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D is available with or without integrated mounting brackets. miConverter 10/100 PoE/D models without integrated mounting brackets can be installed in the miConverter 18-Module Powered Chassis.


Fiber Distance Extension with PoE

PoE switches are used to provide data and power via copper UTP cabling to Powered Devices (PDs) such as VoIP phones, Wi-Fi Access Points and IP cameras. When the distance to the PD exceeds the 100 meter distance limitation of UTP cable, fiber can be deployed to extend the distance to PDs in remote locations.

The application example below shows how miConverter 10/100 PoE/D converters are deployed to enable plug-and-play fiber connectivity from PoE switches.

The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D is powered by a UTP patch cable and converts the copper to fiber to connect to a remote PoE IP camera. At the remote end of the fiber run, an OmniConverter PoE power-sourcing media converter converts the fiber back to copper and injects PoE (up to 60W) to power the IP camera. The OmniConverter is powered by AC power and injects up to 60W PoE.

Fiber to the Premises

In the application example shown below, the miConverter 10/100 PoE/D provides outdoor media conversion for an FTTx service without an outdoor power source.

A Service Provider deploys the miConverter 10/100 PoE/D in a NEMA enclosure on the outside wall of a customer premises for fiber to copper conversion that provides connectivity to the indoor demarcation router.

The miConverter 10/100 PoE/D is powered by a midspan located inside the customer premises. This enables fast and simple installation of the media converter, and eliminates the cost of installing an outdoor power outlet.
