An Ethernet to Fiber Media Converter can also be used where there is high level of electromagnetic interference or EMI which is a common phenomenon found in industrial plants. This interference can cause corruption of data over copper-based ethernet links. Data transmitted over fiber optic cable however is completely immune to this type of noise. An Ethernet to Fiber Optic Converter therefore enables you to inter-connect your copper-ethernet devices over fiber ensuring optimal data transmission across the plant floor.

Form Factors and Application of Ethernet Media Converter



There are typically three styles of Ethernet Media Converters: 1) Standalone units with completely enclosed cases, 2) Card based chassis only models and 3) DIN Rail Mount Industrial Models. Standalone converters are typically used in locations where only one or two conversions are needed. The chassis based options are often used in large MDF or IDF locations where multiple fiber links are converted to UTP.


The DIN Rail Mount Industrial Ethernet Media Converters as the name would suggest are used in large manufacturing plants where harsh conditions and limited space and power options make it ideally suited. Note: some standalone unmanaged models can also be used in special multi-slot chassis designed specifically for them.

Unmanaged or "plug and play" Ethernet Media Converters are easy to install and trouble shoot. The disadvantage with unmanaged converters is when a network issue is occurring, there is no way to access the Ethernet Media Converter to see exactly what might be causing the issue. Many chassis based Ethernet Media Converter solutions feature an option for an SNMP card that shows statistics and overall health of all the media converters in the chassis. This is helpful when you have multiple chassis filled with Ethernet Media Converters in a large data center. Additionally, there are standalone Ethernet converters on the market today that support SNMP management.
