FiberPlex Exhibits New Dual-Channel 10/100 Ethernet-to-Fiber Converter

FiberPlex has introduced the new LightViper EF-2, a dual-channel 10/100 Ethernet-to-fiber converter.

The 1RU EF-2 will accept two independent channels of 10/100 Ethernet via two standard RJ-45 connector/receptacles and then convert the signals to two fiber-optic transmit/receive pairs. It will operate in a choice of three configurations: standard Ethernet using transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) pairs (Standard mode); two channels of single-direction Ethernet (Tx-only); or a combination of both modes.

These operating modes may be easily changed by a switch located on the rear of the unit. Because the EF-2 is a hardware device, it ignores packet structure and data content, thus facilitating transparent use with Aviom’s Pro16 monitor mixing system, and CobraNet and EtherSound networks, as well as standard Ethernet equipment.

Additionally, the EF-2 features an internal full-range, auto-switching AC power supply and the option of being powered by an external 9-18V DC supply. There are two fiber connection choices: two x 2 ST connectors or one x 4-channel T-4 hermaphroditic connector.
