Both media converters feature an internal MDI/MDI-X switch, allowing the converter to be connected to either a PC, hub or switch with a simple UTP cable.The media converters also allow the installer to test the integrity of fibre connection, by forcing the converters to communicate over the fibre cable.This 'Link Test' feature allows installers to check for cable faults without the need for expensive fibreoptic test equipment. Each small media converter is powered by an external power supply unit for use in standalone applications.Where multiple media converters are being used, up to 12 standalone devices can be inserted into a low cost rackmount chassis, allowing all the converters to be powered by a single internal power supply. In critical applications, a second load sharing internal power supply can be installed into the rackmount chassis.
