Industrial IEC 61850-3 Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter
The iMC2F media converter is a cost-effective solution for the conversion between 10/100Base-T(X) and 100BaseFX interface. It allows you to extend communication distance using optical fiber. The iMC2F has been designed for power substation applications and rolling stock applications and is fully compliant with the requirement of IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613. The media converter supports MDI/MDIX auto detection, so crossover wires are not required. The iMC2F has wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +85°C, accepts a wide input voltage range, and is suitable for harsh operating environments.
The iMC2F also supports the LFP (Link Fault Pass-through) feature. Link Fault Pass Through is usually used to solve the problem encountered when operating traditional media converters. The problem is this. When one side of the link fails, the other side still continues to transmit packets, and waits for a response that will never arrive. With link fault pass through, system administrators are able to notice the link failure within a short period of time, minimizing the loss caused by this problem. Use the DIP-Switch to enable the LFP function, the iMC2F will then force the link to shutdown as soon as it notices that the other link has failed, giving the application software a chance to react to the situation. The iMC2F has been designed to satisfy the most demanding environments in substation and rolling stock applications.
