The OM1000P media converter has one optical and one electrical port. It connects a 1000BASE-T Ethernet device to a 1000BASE-X fiber optic Local Area Network or a 100BASE-TX electrical port to a 100BASE-FX optical network.
The transceiver architecture is not switch based; therefore the unit transmits the data as it is received with only a few bits of delay. The OM1000P can supply 48 Volts to attached equipment for PoE applications.
The optical I/O uses an SFP pluggable interface that supports a variety of modules. Auto-negotiation provides plug-and-play operation on the electrical and optical ports. Alternately the unit may be manually configured for MDI/MDI-X and full/half duplex operation. A serial port allows performance and configuration monitoring.
We're very happy with the multiplexers that you supplied. The nature of the customer’s installation means that we won’t hear general feedback unless things go wrong – we’ve not received any complaints so assume that there have not been any problems. We found the equipment straight forward to set up using the supplied documentation.
