Axiomtek has introduced the Icon-1141 series of fast Ethernet media converters, suitable for use in traffic control equipment and for electric utility automation and railway applications.

The media converters translate transmission signals from 100Base-TX cable to 100Base-FX fibre-optic cable.

With a wide operating temperature range from -40C to +75C, the IP30-rated Icon-1141 series meets the Nema TS1/2 standard for traffic control equipment.

It also complies with the IEC61850-3 and IEEE1613 standards for electric utility automation applications and meets the EN50121-4 safety standard for railway applications.

To enhance system reliability, the device comes with Link Fault Pass-Through, helping users to quickly identify network errors.

The Icon-1141 series also offers redundant power and a relay output warning alarm to help prevent damage and loss from power failure and port link failure.

The Icon-1141 series is designed to provide reliable and stable 10/100Base-TX-to-100Base-FX media conversion for electric utility automation applications, such as substation, wind-power systems, hydropower plants, distributed energy resources and water control systems.

Philip Wei, product manager of the Applied Computer and Network Device business unit at Axiomtek, said: ‘Axiomtek’s Icon-1141 fast Ethernet media converters allow you to connect twisted-pair network to optical-fibre network easily and cost effectively.

‘These standalone converters are designed to fit the emerging deployment needs of optical-fibre network.

‘To enhance system reliability, the Icon-1141 series offers the Link Fault Pass-Through feature, redundant power and a relay output alarm.

‘Additionally, this series applies high-quality components with the advantages of a wide operating temperature range and a long MTBF [meantime between failures] to keep your industrial applications running non-stop.

‘Otherwise, the Icon-1141 series is compliant with the standards of IEC61850-3, IEEE1613 and EN50121-4,’ he added.

Axiomtek’s Icon-1141 hardened media converters are available in all types of fibre cabling and connector types.

The RJ-45 port on this unit provides auto-MDIX and auto-negotiation.

The Icon-1141 series comes equipped with a wide voltage range from 12VDC to 48VDC redundant power input via a terminal block or a power jack and is secured with power polarity reverse and an overload-current-resettable fuse.

The media converters feature front-facing LED indicators for status reports on network speed, duplex media access control connection and network traffic.

To fit various application requirements, the device can be DIN-rail, panel or rack mounted.

These RoHS-compliant products are available now.
