Signamax 10/100BaseT/TX to 100BaseFX DIN Rail Mount Industrial Hardened Media Converter

Fiber Optics Were Needed in Rugged Environments and Signamax Has Responded By Introducing the 065-1800 Series of Hardened Converters


What's special about this ethernet to fiber converter?

  • This device will change signals on a copper cable to signals that run on fiber, allowing you to introduce fiber technology without making other changes.
  • An economical solution for your outdoor ethernet needs where temperature and humidity play a role in the integrity of your signal.
  • Front panel status LED's allows you to see what's happening without having to get into tight spots.

Signamax Connectivity Systems’ 065-1800 series 10/100 to 100BaseFX have been developed to operate in harsh industrial environments that require durable and rugged equipment that will function properly in severe temperature extremes. These media converters are ideal for outdoor environments, shop floors, and other harsh environments where consistent operation at temperature extremes of -40°F to 176°F (-40°C to 80°C) is necessary. These media converters are compact so you can set them up anywhere you need.
