3.Connect the RJ-45 connector at the other end of the cable to the RJ-45 port on the other device (switch, workstation, etc.).

Set the Two-Position Switch

A two-position switch (located on the back of the media monverter) allows selection of Auto-Negotiation and Fullor Half-Duplex. Use a small, flat-blade screwdriver (or a similar device) to set the switch according to the site requirements see the drawing below.

Auto-Negotiation

The Auto-Negotiation feature allows the media converter to be used with 100BaseTX ports. Using Auto-Negotiation, the media converter brings up the copper links in the highest speed and mode possible for all attached network devices.

Full-Duplex network

In a full-duplex network, maximum cable lengths are determined by the type of cables that are used. See page 1 (front cover) for the cable specifications for the different J/FE-CF-03 models. (The 512-Bit Rule does not apply in a full-duplex network.)

Half-Duplex network (512-Bit Rule)

In a half-duplex network, the maximum cable lengths are determined by the round trip delay limitations of each Fast Ethernet™ collision domain. (A collision domain is the longest path between any two terminal devices, e.g. a terminal, switch, or router.)

The 512-Bit Rule determines the maximum length of cable permitted by calculating the round-trip delay in bit-times (BT) of a particular collision domain. If the result is less than or equal to 512 BT, the path is good.

For more information on the 512-Bit Rule, see the white paper titled “Collision Domains” on the Transition Networks website at:

http://www.transition.com/learning/whitepapers/colldom_wp.htm

CAUTION: Copper based media ports, e.g., Twisted Pair (TP) Ethernet, USB, RS232, RS422, RS485, DS1, DS3, Video Coax, etc., are intended to be connected to intrabuilding (inside plant) link segments that are not subject to lightening transients or power faults. Copper based media ports, e.g., Twisted Pair (TP) Ethernet, USB, RS232, RS422, RS485, DS1, DS3, Video Coax, etc., are NOT to be connected to interbuilding (outside plant) link segments that are subject to lightening transients or power faults. Failure to observe this caution could result in damage to equipment.

*MTBF is estimated using the predictability method. This method is based on MIL217F at 25°C ambient temperature, typical enclosure heat rise of 10°C, and nominal operating conditions and parameters.

Troubleshooting

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

1.Is the Power LED on the media converter illuminated?

NO

Is the power adapter the proper type of voltage and cycle frequency for the AC outlet?

Is the power adapter properly installed in the media converter and in the outlet?

Contact Technical Support at (800) 260-1312.

YES

Proceed to step 2.

2.Is the Copper LED illuminated?

NO

Check the copper cable for proper connection.

Contact Technical Support at (800) 260-1312. YES

Proceed to step 3.

3.Is the Fiber LED illuminated?
