The iConverter Gx managed media converters are members of the modular iConverter product family, and provide 1000BASE-T UTP to 1000BASE-X fiber conversion.

The iConverter Gx models are available in multimode, single-mode, and single-fiber options. The Gx supports ST, SC, MT-RJ, and LC connectors. The UTP port supports 1000BASE-T in either Half or Full-Duplex mode. The UTP auto-crossover feature eliminates the need for a crossover cable and facilitates connectivity to network equipment such as hubs, switches and workstations.

The iConverter Gx features user-selectable Link Propagate, Link Segment and Remote Fault Detection modes to facilitate quick fault detection, isolation and reporting.

iConverter Gx modules are hot-swappable and can be mounted in a 19-Module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rack-mountable chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of redundant AC, 24VDC or 48VDC power supplies. It can also be mounted in a 2-Module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or in a 1-Module AC/DC powered chassis.

The iConverter family of managed fiber access media converters are used in Service Provider access networks and Enterprise LANs. iConverter media converters provide fiber connectivity with copper-to-fiber, multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, or dual fiber to single-fiber conversions.

View an Application Example

Management is accomplished by installing a Network Management Module (NMM2) or a media converter with integrated management (such as an iConverter 10/100M2) in the chassis with the Gx. Management provides monitoring, remote configuration and trap notification. The management module can be accessed via SNMP, Telnet, and via a serial port. The SNMP-based management is accomplished via Omnitron's intuitive, graphic-oriented NetOutlook management software or third party SNMP management software, while the Telnet and the serial interfaces have an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface.

Some of the real-time Gx parameters that can be monitored include power, link and data receive status. Other parameters include module type and model, hardware and software revisions, serial numbers and a user-defined identifier.

The user can override the Gx module's physical switch settings using SNMP or Telnet to remotely configure switch-selectable parameters such as UTP Duplex Mode.

The Gx modules can generate SNMP traps for module insertion or removal, and port state changes including link-up and linkdown. Trap monitoring of specific events can be selectively enabled or disabled by the network administrator.

For wide temperature (-40 to 60º C), add a "W" to the end of the model number.
Consult factory for extended temperature (-40 to +75º C) models.
When using single-fiber (SF) media converter models, the Tx wavelength on one end has to match the Rx wavelength on the other.
*A minimum of 3dB of attenuation is required for these models.
1 62.5/125μm, 100/140μm multimode fiber up to 220m. 50/125μm multimode fiber up to 550m. Refer to the fiber cable manufacturer for multimode distance specifications.
