The OmniConverter 10GPoE+/Sx is a compact unmanaged PoE and PoE+ Ethernet switch that feature two 1/10G uplink ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper Power Sourcing Power-over-Ethernet user ports.

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

All models support Directed Switch mode, which directs multicast traffic (such as video) only to the appropriate uplink port, preventing multicast 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 10GPoE+/Sx to operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches. In Dual Device mode, the 10GPoE+/Sx provides separate and independent data traffic paths between each uplink port and a group of user ports.

The 10GPoE+/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 10GPoE+/Sx automatically negotiate and deliver the power level required by a Powered Device (PD) partner. The 10GPoE+/Sx can deliver up to 30 Watts of power per user port.

The switches features a Remote PoE Power Reset that can be configured with a DIP-switch. This feature enables the user to remotely power-cycle and reset each PD increasing network reliability, up time and save manpower time and expense by automating the recovery of remote PD equipment.

All models can be wall mounted, rack mounted or DIN-rail mounted using an optional mounting clips. They are available with an external 100 to 240V AC power adapter or with a DC terminal connector.


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 a surveillance security (green) network and a Wi-Fi (purple) network are sharing a single hub distribution location. Using the two uplinks and the Dual Switch mode facilitates using a single PoE switch driving both the Cameras and the Wi-Fi Access Points while maintaining isolation between the networks.

Daisy Chain Application

This example demonstrates the daisy chain capabilities of the OmniConverter PoE switches. In this application each OmniConverter switch connects to its neighboring switch via its uplink ports. The daisy chain can continue to additional switches using this method of connectivity.

Each OmniConverter switch provides connectivity to high speed fiber links, and power to IP cameras and Wi-Fi access points at each location along the daisy chain.
