Mini media converter is robust for security and transport applications
Mini media converters connect field-based equipment to Ethernet networks over long distances via fibre. The small form factor of the 9HMEC mini media converters mean they are small enough to be installed in the confined spaces provided by camera poles and street cabinets, and tough enough to operate in temperatures ranging from -40 to 70 degrees C, says AMG Systems.
The converters are rugged enough to withstand security and transport camera and device installations. They provide a 100Mbits per second or Gigabit Ethernet uplink across fibre via the SFP port, providing a hardened means of converting IP signals for transport over long distances across all types of fibre cabling. It is also cost-effective, says AMG.
Target applications are CCTV system is used for security applications, where it is essential that the video signal delivery. Another use is transport applications, which use monitoring cameras and critical signage.
The Mini media converters are DIN rail-mountable, so can be quickly installed and removed for maintenance. They are non-programmable so there is no need for any user configuration or computer-based set-up.
The converters offer an optional link fault forwarding (LFF) feature, which allows a pair of media converters to share their link status. Any associated subsequent copper or fibre link failure will result in both linked media converters disabling the copper links, ensuring that attached networking devices recognise the Link Fail status and thus do not forward data into what would otherwise be a data cul-de-sac.
AMG is a UK manufacturer, providing environmentally robust fibre, analogue, IP/Ethernet, wireless and hybrid communication transmission products. It can design and build a bespoke transmission system for a highly specialist application or manufacturing a complete range of ruggedised and hardened industrial Ethernet switches for the CCTV industry.
