The OM101 media converter connects to any 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX Ethernet port. It allows the attached device to connect to a 100BASE-FX fiber optic Local Area Network over a pair of optical fibers.
Two OM101s can be connected back-to-back for a Point-To-Point connection. The OM101 comes with singlemode or multimode ST or SC connectors. Auto-negotiation provides plug-and-play operation; alternately the copper ports can be configured with switches to force duplex, speed, and cross-over.
A version of the OM101 comes with Link Pass Thru which causes a link failure on the electrical/optical side to be transferred to the optical/electrical side – this allows the attached equipment to be aware of communication failure.
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.
