The OmniConverter 10G/Sx is an unmanaged 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/Sx enables network distance extension with fiber cabling.

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

The OmniConverter 10G/Sx 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 daisy-chain configurations and redundant uplinks for critical applications that require protection and sub 50ms restoration in the event of an uplink failure.

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

The 10G/Sx modes of operation can be configured using easily accessible DIP-switches. Each DIP-switch function is labeled on the side of the OmniConverter for ease of identification and use.

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 or CWDM wavelengths.

The compact OmniConverter 10G/Sx Ethernet switches can be wall mounted, rack mounted or DIN-rail mounted using an optional 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 chain capabilities of the OmniConverter switches. In this application each OmniConverter switch connects to its neighboring switches via its uplink ports. The daisy chain can continue to additional switches using this method of connectivity.

In this application, two locations are connected using the OmniConverter switches providing high speed connectivity between the workstations and the router.
