Fiber Optic converter

H.CON Copper Ethernet 10/100BaseT to Fiber FX media converter
for Multimode and single mode single fiber option

  • 10/100Base-TX-FX conversion
  • Distances -up to 150km
  • BMD for trouble-free deployment
  • Internal PS
  • Constant Loop-Back via FEF
  • Easy installation
  • Single-Fiber-Strand for fiber saving

The H.CON is a 10/100Base-TX-FX Media Converter designed and built to be used as a subscriber (CPE) Access Device in FTTx (x=Home, Business, Desk) Networks. It utilizes FibroLAN's BMD (Buffered Media Domain) technology for easy and trouble-free connection to any type of network equipment either 10 or 100Mbps, Half or Full Duplex, while always yielding full F/O distance. Consequently, the service provider does need to verify (and eventually upgrade) customer's network architecture prior to installation. The device is housed in a compact yet rugged metal case, providing it with strong free-air cooling for extended reliability. It is equipped with an internal wide-range switching Power Supply for safety, easy installation and reliable operation.

SFS (Single-Fiber-Strand) versions of the H.CON make it a superb choice for FTTH deployment, saving 50% of the cable plant. The H.CON does not   require setup of any kind (minimizing installation time) and does not have any external controls to avoid tampering (intentional or accidental) by users. The H.CON is suitable for desk-top, shelf or wall-mount installation.
