Industrial Ethernet Media converters seamlessly convert between fibre optic Ethernet and copper Ethernet connections. Amplicon supplies a broad range of copper to fibre converters providing seamless integration of copper and fiber network cabling to extend network distances. Our range supports 10Mbps, 100Mbps and 1000Mbps/1Gbps Ethernet as well as a variety of network protocols.
Using fibre optic communications provides 3 key benefits:
1) Distance: Copper Ethernet is limited to 100m range. Fibre-optic links can extend up to 120km!
2) Noise immunity: Ethernet communications can be disrupted in electrically noisy environments if standard Cat 5 / Cat 6 cabling is used. Fibre based communications are unaffected by electrical noise and as such are a much better choice for industrial installations.
3) Security: Unlike a copper cable there is no radiated signal outside a fibre optic link. For this reason, fibre is sometimes used to prevent security breaches in military and other sensitive applications.
Below you can find a complete range of 10/100/1000baseT Copper twister pair cabling to Ethernet fibre 10/100/1000baseFX solutions.
Amplicon also supply a 10Base2 to 10BaseT converter for connecting legacy co-axial based systems to twisted pair networks.
