The OmniConverter 10G/M is a managed compact Ethernet switch that features two 1/10G uplink ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper user ports. The OmniConverter 10G/M enables network distance extension with fiber or copper cabling.

The OmniConverter 10G/M is a Layer 2 Ethernet switch that forwards frames to any port based on their MAC address.

The OmniConverter 10G/M supports Directed Switch mode, which directs multicast traffic (such as video) only to the appropriate uplink port, preventing the multicast video traffic from flooding other network ports.

The switches support redundant uplinks, industrial ring Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP), Spanning Tree protocol and daisy-chain configurations for high availability industrial network applications.

The switches support Dual Device mode that enables the 10G/M to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the 10G/M provides separate and independent data traffic paths between each uplink port and a group of user ports.

The mode of operation can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches or using Web, Telnet, SSH, SNMPv1/v2c/v3 or Serial Console management interfaces. IPv4 and IPv6 are supported on the switches. These management interfaces provide access to filtering and security options, such as, broadcast storm prevention, IGMP, IEEE 802.1x, RADIUS, TACACS+ and Access Control Lists. Email notification and alarm reporting is provided.

The OmniConverter switches are available with Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacle ports. The SFP ports support 10/100/1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-T and 10GBASE-T copper transceivers. They also support 1G and 10G multimode or single-mode fiber, dual or single-fiber and standard, CWDM and DWDM wavelengths.

The compact OmniConverter 10G/M Ethernet switches can be wall mounted, rack mounted using a shelf or DIN-rail mounted using DIN-rail mounting clips. The OmniConverter Ethernet switch models are available with 2-Pin DC Terminal or external 100-240V AC power adapters.


Dual Device Mode Application

This Dual Device feature is extremely useful when two isolated networks domains share a single network distribution location.

The example below depicts a scenario where the Administration (green) network and the Engineering (purple) network are sharing a single hub distribution location. Using the two uplinks and the Dual Switch mode facilitates using a single switch driving both the Administration and the Engineering workstations while maintaining isolation between the networks.

Daisy Chain Application

This example demonstrates the daisy chaining and ring capabilities of the OmniConverter. In this application each OmniConverter switch connects to its neighboring switches via its uplink ports eventually closing the ring. The OmniConverter switches are providing connectivity between the workstations and the router.

Using this network architecture combined with ring protection protocols such as Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP) or Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) facilitates a highly resilient network required in mission critical applications.
