For environments with unusual extremes in temperature, these models are available that operate from 14°F to 140°F (-10°C ~ 60°C).
Signamax Connectivity Systems' Switching Single Fiber Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) Media Converters with Link Fault Signaling allow data normally carried over two strands of fiber optic cable to be carried over a single strand of fiber optic cable, utilizing two different light spectra to carry signals in both directions simultaneously. This technology doubles the capacity of a company's fiber optic network, allowing a carrier or an enterprise business to minimize its operational costs by eliminating or delaying the deployment of additional fiber optic capacity. These converters are available in singlemode and multimode models, and span distances of up to 40 kilometers (24.85 miles) with the 065-1176AEDLFS and 065-1176BEDLFS models.
Since WDM Switching Media Converters utilize two different light spectra with one end of a circuit transmitting on the other ends receive frequency (and vice versa), they must be used in A/B pairs. A circuit utilizing these converters would therefore use a single strand of singlemode fiber optic cable plus one each of the 065-1176ALFS and 065-1176BLFS, or one each of the 065-1176AEDLFS and 065-1176BEDLFS and 065-1176BLFS, depending upon the distance spanned. All Signamax WDM converters are equipped with Link Fault Signaling to provide the means for an SNMP-managed switch to recognize a failure on a fiber channel or twisted-pair connection, enabling the switch to automatically route to a backup path if the connected switch is equipped with Spanning Tree Algorithm. Each WDM Media Converter provides a 10/100BaseT/TX auto-negotiating RJ-45 twisted-pair connector port, and features store-and-forward switching architecture. Auto-MDIX capability on the twisted-pair port is also provided for convenient connections.
