iConverter® 10T/2

10BASE-T to 10BASE-2 Managed Ethernet Media Converter

The iConverter 10T/2 provides 10BASE-T copper to 10BASE-2 coax conversion as part of the managed iConverter product family.
100m distances supported via twisted pair cabling via the RJ-45 port.
The iConverter 10T/2 detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, featuring a crossover switch that facilitates a straight-through cable connection to a workstation or a hub, eliminating the need for a crossover cable.

The Coax port has a 50ohm BNC connector, supporting distances up to 185m, and up to 30 workstations can be attached to the coax segment.
Cable termination is handled via a termination switch and a built in line termination.

Management of the 10T/2 is achieved by installing an iConverter Management Module (NMM2) or Network Interface Design (NID) in the same chassis, or the 10T/2 can be used as an unmanaged device if desired.

The management software, if used, can override physical DIP-switch settings such as coax termination or enable/disable backplane. The module supports SNMP trap notifications for monitoring and notification of network events.

The iConverter 10T/2 is a hot-swappable module, and can be mounted in an 19-module (2U high) or 5-Module (1U high) rack-mountable chassis (19 or 23 inch) with redundant AC, 24DC or 48VDC power supplies.

2-module AC or 18 to 60VDC powered chassis, or a 1 module AC or DC powered chassis are also available.

Transport Fare Validator

In this example, an iConverter 10T/2 media converter is used to connect a fare validator that has an RJ-45 UTP port to an existing coax infrastructure.
The iConverter 10T/2 is used to convert the 10Base-T RJ-45 connection used by the validator to 10BASE-2 Coax.
