OVERVIEW

The BLACK BOX® family ofFiber Adapters bringslow-costfiber optic connectivity to your desktop.

PCI Fiber Adapters

These 32-bit,bus-masteringPCIFiber Adapters are available in10-Mbps,100-Mbps,or autosensing10/100-MbpsEthernet.

The adapters fully comply with IEEE 802.3 10BASE-FLand 802. 3u100BASE-FXstandards, ensuring compatibility and quality with existing network hardware. PCIFiber Adapters support UNIX, Novell®, LAN Manager, Banyan, and other popular LAN protocols.

The LH1351C features both a dual-speed10/100BASE-TXcopper port and a100BASE-FXfiber port, providing an upgrade path to move your network from10BASE-Tto100BASE-TXto100BASE-FX.

Copper-and-fiberPCIFiber Adapters (LE1352C-ST,LE1353C-SC,LH1351C) provide automatic fallback for network redundancy. Although only oneport—copperorfiber—isoperational at one time, both ports can be connected to an appropriate cable. If the primary connection fails, the card instantly switches to the second connection without a reboot. This feature enables you to use the copper port as a backup to the fiberport—ifthe fiber port fails, the card automatically switches to the copper port. The card then continuously monitors your network for a restored link. When the fiber link is restored, the card automatically and seamlessly switches back to the primary link.

This redundancy helps to ensure that access to mission-criticaldata remains uninterrupted.

The adapters also have comprehensive sets of status indicators, alerting you to such items as link status and activity for each link, and collisions.

All of the PCI cards operate without the need for hardware jumpers or switches. They support full-duplexup to 1.2 miles (1.9 km) as well ashalf-duplexto 1,312 ft. (399.9 m).

ISA Fiber Adapter

The ISA card (LE1351C) enables you to connect older PCs with ISA slots to a 10BASE-Tor10BASE-FXnetwork. It’s software configurable with no jumpers or switches and supportsshared-memoryorI/O-portmodes for the ISA interface.
