OmniConverter® 10G/Sx

Unmanaged 6 and 10 Port 10Gigabit Ethernet Switch

OmniConverter 10G/Sx product image

The OmniConverter 10G/Sx is an unmanaged, compact Ethernet switch that features two 1/10G uplink ports and four or eight 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper user ports, enabling network distance extension with fiber cabling.

As a Layer 2 Ethernet switch, the OmniConverter 10G/Sx forwards frames based on their MAC addresses.

In Directed Switch mode, it directs multicast traffic, such as video, only to the appropriate uplink port, preventing multicast video from flooding other network ports.

The switch supports daisy-chain configurations and redundant uplinks, ensuring protection and sub-50ms restoration in critical applications in the event of an uplink failure.

With Dual Device mode, the 10G/Sx can operate as two independent and isolated Ethernet switches, providing separate data traffic paths between each uplink port and a group of user ports.

Configuring the 10G/Sx is easy with accessible DIP-switches, each labeled for convenience.

OmniConverter switches feature Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceiver receptacle ports that support 10/100/1000BASE-T, 1000BASE-T, and 10GBASE-T copper transceivers, as well as 1G and 10G multimode or single-mode fibre, dual or single-fibre, and standard or CWDM wavelengths.

The compact OmniConverter 10G/Sx Ethernet switches can be wall-mounted, rack-mounted, or DIN-rail mounted using optional DIN-rail mounting clips. Power options include 2-Pin DC Terminal or external 100-240V AC adapters.

Dual Device Mode Application

This Dual Device feature is extremely useful when two isolated networks domains share a single network distribution location.

The example below depicts a scenario where the Administration (green) network and the Engineering (purple) network are sharing a single hub distribution location. Using the two uplinks and the Dual Switch mode facilitates using a single switch driving both the Administration and the Engineering workstations while maintaining isolation between the networks.

Daisy Chain Application

This example demonstrates the daisy chain capabilities of the OmniConverter switches. In this application each OmniConverter switch connects to its neighboring switches via its uplink ports. The daisy chain can continue to additional switches using this method of connectivity.

In this application, two locations are connected using the OmniConverter switches providing high speed connectivity between the workstations and the router.
