Perle’s line of feature rich 10/100/1000 SFP Media Converters transparently connects copper to SFP for multimode or single mode fiber. Our 10/100/1000 Ethernet to Fiber Converters provide an economical path to extend the distance of an existing network, the life of non-fiber based equipment, or the distance between two devices. The pluggable fiber optics port allows for flexible network configurations using SFP transceivers supplied by Perle, Cisco or other manufacturers of MSA compliant SFPs. S-1110 SFP Media Converters are also available with support for Extended Temperature ranges.
Network Administrators can “see-everything” with
Perle’s advanced features such as Auto-Negotiation,
Auto-MDIX, Link Pass-Through, Fiber Fault Alert, and Loopback.
This allows for more efficient troubleshooting and
less on-site maintenance. These cost and time saving
features, along with a lifetime warranty and free worldwide
technical support, make Perle’s 10/100/1000 SFP Media Converters the smart choice for IT professionals.
10/100/1000 SFP Media Converter Features
|SFP Speed Sensing||Automatically detects whether a Gigabit or Fast Ethernet fiber SFP has been inserted and adjusts accordingly.|
|Auto-Negotiation (802.3u)||The media converter supports auto negotiation. The 1000Base-X fiber interface negotiates according to 802.3 clause 37. The 10/100/1000Base-T negotiates according to 802.3 clause 28 and 40. The 1000Base-X will link up with its partner after the highest common denominator (HCD) is reached and the copper has linked up with its partner. The 1000Base-X will continue to cycle through negotiation transmitting a remote fault of offline (provided this is enabled through the switch setting) until the copper is linked up and the HCDs match.
The media converter supports auto-negotiation of full duplex, half duplex, remote fault, full duplex pause, asymmetric pause and Auto MDI-X.
|Auto-MDIX||Auto-MDIX (automatic medium-dependant interface crossover) detects the signaling on the copper ethernet interface to determine the type of cable connected (straight-through or crossover) and automatically configures the connection when enabled. The media converter can also correct for wires swapped within a pair.
The media converter will adjust for up to 120ns of delay skew between the 1000Base-T pairs.
|Smart Link Pass-Through||When the Link Mode switch is placed into Smart Link Pass-Through mode, the copper ethernet port will reflect the state of the 1000Base-X media converter port. This feature can be used whether fiber auto-negotiation is enabled or disabled.|
|Fiber Fault Alert||With Fiber Fault Alert the state of the 1000Base-X receiver is passed to the 1000Base-X transmitter. This provides fault notification to the partner device attached to the 1000Base-X interface of the media converter. If the 1000Base-X transmitter is off as a result of this fault it will be turned on periodically to allow the condition to clear should the partner device on the 1000Base-X be using a similar technique. This eliminates the possibility of lockouts that occur with some media converters. Applies only when fiber auto-negotiation is disabled.|
|Pause (IEEE 802.3xy)||Pause signaling is an IEEE feature that temporarily suspends data transmission between two devices in the event that one of the devices becomes overwhelmed. The media converter supports pause negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T connection and 1000Base-X fiber connection.|
|Duplex||Full and half duplex operation supported.|
|Jumbo Packets||Transparent to jumbo packets up to 10KB.|
|VLAN||Transparent to VLAN tagged packets.|
|Remote Loopback||Capable of performing a loopback on the 1000Base-X fiber interface.|

|Universal AC/DC adapter||100-240v AC, regulated DC adapter included|
|Power / TST||This green LED is turned on when power is applied to the media converter. Otherwise it is off. The LED will blink when in Loopback test mode.|
|Fiber link on / Receive activity (LKF)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 1000Base-X link is on and flashes with a 50% duty cycle when data is received.|
|Copper link on / Receive activity (LKC)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 10/100/1000Base-T link is on and flashes with a 50% duty cycle when data is received.|
|Fiber Duplex (FDF)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 10/100/1000Base-X link is operatinal in full duplex mode. The LED is off when in half duplex.|
|Copper Duplex (FDC)||This green LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is on when the 10/100/1000Base-T link is operatinal in full duplex mode. The LED is off when in half duplex.|
|10/100/1000 Speed||This multi-color LED is operational only when power is applied. The LED is green when the speed of the copper ethernet port is running at 1000 Mbps. The LED is orange when the speed of the copper Ethernet port is running at 100 Mbps. The LED is off when in 10 Mbps.|
|Switches – accessible through a side opening in the chassis|
Enabled (Default) – The media converter uses 802.3u Auto-negotiation on the 10/100/1000Base-T interface. It is set to advertise full duplex, half duplex, pause and remote fault capabilities.
Disabled – The media converter sets the port according to the position of the speed and duplex switches.
|Link Mode||Link Mode provides a transparency to the state of the copper link allowing for simplified trouble shooting from the devices connected to the media converter.
Normal (Default – Up)
With Fiber Auto Negotiation disabled the state of the copper link has no effect on the 1000Base-X link.
Smart Link Pass Through (Down)
With Fiber Auto-Negotiation disabled the behavior is as follows. When the copper receiver is off the 1000Base-X transmitter will be turned off. When the 1000Base-X receiver goes off the copper transmitter will be turned off.
|Fiber Fault Alert||The Fiber Fault Alert switch has meaning when Auto-Negotiation is disabled
Enabled (Default – Up)
|Remote Loopback||The media converter can perform a loopback on the 1000Base-X fiber interface.
Disabled (Default – Up)
Enabled – The 1000Base-X receiver is looped to the 1000Base-X transmitter. The copper transmitter is taken off the interface.
|If Auto-Negotiation (802.3u) is enabled, the media converter determines the current cable pinout to use on the copper interface. If Auto-Negotiation (802.3u) is disabled the Media converter will use the RX Energy method on the copper interface to set the port MDI or MDIX whichever is appropriate.
Enabled (Default) – Either a straight-through or crossover type cable can be used to connect the media converter to the device on the other end of the cable.
Disabled – If the partner device on the other end of the cable does not have the Auto-MDIX feature a specific cable, either a straight-through or crossover will be required to ensure that the media converter’s transmitter and the partner devices transmitter are connected to the others receiver. The Media converter’s 100Base-TX port is configured as MDI-X with this switch setting.
