The OM101E converts a 10/100/1000BASE-T electrical signal to a 100BASE-FX fiber optic signal. Auto-negotiation provides plug-and-play operation. The copper port can also be manually configured with switches to force duplex, speed, and crossover parameters.
Jumbo packets are not supported. Optics are available for multimode, singlemode, and single fiber applications with ST, SC, and LC(SFP) connector types.
The OM101E has additional features over the standard OM101, including electrical link pass-through and optical pass-through, plus an extended operating input voltage range. The OM101E and the OM101 are completely backward compatible with each other.
