Each media converter port in the multi-port media converter operates independently over one isolated twisted-pair copper/fiber-optic cable link. The media converter port receives and transmits network signals in either full-duplex or half-duplex, depending upon the network devices to which the media converter port is attached.

NOTE: In Telco option (not shown), the 50-pin Telco connector concentrates up to 12 UTP connections onto one connector. This concentration of UTP ports is then broken out for connection to fiber.

RJ-45 CONNECTOR

Twisted pair connection requires two active pairs configured as straight through and/or crossover. The two active pairs in an Ethernet™ network are pins 1 & 2 and pins 3 & 6. Use only dedicated wire pairs (such as blue/white & white/blue, orange/white & white/orange) for the active pins.

Media Converter Port in Full-Duplex Network

In a full-duplex network, maximum cable lengths are determined by the cables used. See page 10 for cable specifications.

NOTE: The 512-Bit Rule described below does NOT apply in a full-duplex network.

Media Converter Port in Half-Duplex Network

The 512-Bit Rule applies separately to each collision domain.

USING THE 512-BIT RULE

In a half-duplex network, maximum cable lengths are determined by the round trip delay limitations of each Fast Ethernetcollision domain. (Switches and routers divide the network into separate Ethernet™ collision domains.) The 512-Bit Rule determines maximum distances by calculating the collision domain round-trip delay in bit-times.

FAULT ISOLATION and CORRECTION

If the multi-port media converter fails, isolate and correct the fault by determining the answers to the following questions and then taking the indicated action:

1.Is the POWER LED on the multi-port media converter illuminated?

NO

Is the power cord properly installed in the media converter and in the grounded AC outlet?

Does the grounded AC outlet provide power?

Contact Technical Support: (800) 260-1312/(800) 526-9267.

YES

Proceed to step 2.

2.Are any of the 100BASE-TX TX LINK LEDs illuminated? YES

Check twisted pair cables for proper connection.

Contact Technical Support: (800) 260-1312/(800) 526-9267.

NO

Proceed to step 3.

3.Are any of the 100BASE-FX FBR LINK LEDs illuminated? YES

Check fiber cables for proper connection.

Contact Technical Support: (800) 260-1312/(800) 526-9267.

YES

Contact Technical Support: (800) 260-1312/(800) 526-9267.

Install Cable

NOTE: Refer to page 10 for cable and connector specifications.

COPPER

NOTE: KEEP TWISTED PAIR RUNS AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE.

FIBER

1.Locate or build 100BASE-FX compliant fiber cable with male twostranded TX to RX connectors at both ends.

2.Connect male TX and RX cable connectors at one end of cable to TX and RX female connectors, respectively, on media converter port.

3.Connect male TX and RX cable connectors at other end of cable to RX and TX connectors, respectively, on 802.3 compliant fiber device.

Connect to Power

1.At multi-port media converter back, locate male power receptacle.

2.Plug female media converter end of power cord into multi-port media converter power receptacle.

4.Verify that multi-port media converter is powered by observing illuminated power and status LED(s).

OPERATION

Use the status LEDs to monitor multi-port media converter operation in the network.

NOTE: Each 100BASE-TX/ 100BASE-FX media converter port is identified by a number located just above the fiber connector(s) for that 100BASE-TX /100BASE-FX port connection. The LEDs that apply to each 100BASE-TX or 100BASE-FX port connector(s) are located, when facing the multi-port media converter, at the left of the connector(s) for that 100BASE-TX or 100BASE-FX port connection.

Using LinkAlert™

The E-TX-FX-xx00 series multi-port media converter LinkAlert™ feature allows each media converter port to pass 100BASE-TX-side link faults over the port link to the 100BASE-FX side and to pass 100BASE-FX-side link faults over the port link to the 100BASE-TX side.

If the port does not detect a good link on the 100BASE-TX side, the port disables all transmission (including active-idle) on the 100BASE-FX side.
