S4TEF10xx-10x

Stand-Alone Media Converter

RS-232 to Fiber

(4) T1/E1 to Fiber

The S4TEF10xx-10x media converter can extend signals from an RS-232 data port and up to four (4) T1/E1 network ports over fiber.

The RS-232 and T1/E1 interfaces are independent of each other and the signals from these ports can be sent over the fiber interface simultaneously.

The S4TEF10xx-10x is designed to be installed in pairs. For example, install one S4TEF1011-100 as the local media converter and another S4TEF1011-100 as the remote media converter.

All S4TEF10xx-10x models have the following copper connectors:

Installation

Due to proprietary communication over fiber, the S4TEF media converter must be installed in pairs.

Configuration Switches

The S4TEF10xx-10x media converter has two (2) sets of configuration switches.

Set #1 sets the T1/E1 options.

Set #2 sets the serial options.

Switch Set #1 (upper): T1/E1 Options

Switch Set #2 (lower): Serial Options

Use a flat blade screwdriver to set the switches as shown:

Switch Set #1 - T1/E1 Options

5, 6, 7, 8 - Loop-Back Settings

The loop-back setting is used for installation and network debugging procedures. Each of the T1/E1 ports can be individually set for loop-back mode:

• Switch 5 controls T1/E1 port 1

• Switch 6 controls T1/E1 port 2

• Switch 7 controls T1/E1 port 3

• Switch 8 controls T1/E1 port 4

When the loop-back switch for a particular T1/E1 port is enabled, the port loops the signal from the receive port back to the transmit port. The loop-back test scenarios are described in detail on page 16.

Hardware/Software Jumper

The hardware/software jumper is inside the media converter housing and is located near the back end of the upper circuit board.

Hardware The media converter mode is determined by the switch settings (see pages 3 - 6).

Software The media converter mode is determined by the most-recently saved, on-board microprocessor settings.

To set the jumper:

1.Using a small screwdriver, remove the four (4) screws that secure the cover and carefully remove the cover from the media converter.

2.Locate the hardware/software jumper.

3. Using small needle-nosed pliers or similar device, move the jumper to the desired position (see above).

4.Carefully replace the cover on the media converter and replace the four (4) screws that secure the cover to the media converter.

Power the Media Converter

1.Connect the barrel connector on the power adapter to the media converter’s power port (located on the back of the media converter).

2.Connect the power adapter plug to AC power.

3.Verify that the media converter is powered by observing the illuminated LED power indicator light.

NOTE: For DC power, consult the user’s guide for the Transition Networks SPS1872-xx DC external power supply.
