Industrial Rated 10BaseT to 10BaseFX converter

Industrial rated DC powered Temperature Hardened 10BaseT to 10BaseFX converter
115VAC 12VDC - 24VDC - 48VDC



Robust packaging, extended temperatures models, a selection of AC and DC power types, ease-of-use features, and energy efficiency are the primary characteristics of the Magnum 10Mb FT14 regular and FT14H Hardened Media Converters. All models offer a graceful way to convert and transfer data between twisted pair and fiber ST-type multi-mode and single-mode network cables for media flexibility in new or expanded 10Mb Ethernet networks. They comply with the Ethernet V1.0 / 2.0 specifications and the IEEE 802.3 standards. Power consumed in use is only 1.5 watts.

The FT14 units are for wiring closet and factory floor environments and use an external AC power supply for 0 to 50C ambient temperature. All power supply units are UL and CE tested and approved for their specified rating. A heavy duty metal case with convection cooling is featured. The units can be mounted securely on a closet wall or the side of cabinet by using the metal panel mounting clips included. A rack-mount tray option is available, for up to 16 units.

The FT14H Hardened unit features a sealed metal case which is also used as a heat sink. No internal air flow is required for cooling, so the FT14H resists dust, dirt, moisture, insects and smoke, and prevents internal damage to the unit in case of fire.

Choices of FT14H models for external AC or internal DC power are available. The DC power input may be nominally 9V, 24V, or -48V. Ambient temperature rating is up to 40C to +75C depending on the power source option used. The FT14H is suitable for temperature un-controlled outdoor applications. Mounting options include panel-mounting, DIN-rail, or rack-mount tray.

Magnum FT14 and FT14H 10Mb Fiber Media Converters are designed to provide reliable operation, even in stressed industrial-strength environments. Their high-strength fabricated metal packaging shields against Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). Like all Magnum Ethernet connectivity products, they are backed by a three year warranty.
