» 1000Mbps Full duplex and full wire-speed forwarding rate
» Jumbo frames up to 10K bytes to increase throughput and transmission efficiency

Port Failure Alarm

» Relay alarm configured by DIP switch to notify users when power fails or link is down

Hardened Grade

» Supports -40 to 75°C (-40 to 167°F) operating temperature
» Redundant power inputs on terminal block connector
» Supports DIN-Rail mounting

Link-Fault-Pass-Through (LFPT)

» Provides constant monitoring of the links connected to the media converters
» If a copper or a fiber link fails, the media converter will pass the fail state on throughout the link, disabling the fiber link and the copper link on the opposite end
