Fast Ethernet Bridge 10/100T / 100FX USB powering

  • Fast and cost-effective media conversion for multimode and single mode
  • Simple segment splitting in Fast Ethernet networks
  • Alternative power supply via USB-connection
  • Optional powering over Power-over-Ethernet (PD)

The Mini Bridge enables fast and cost-effective integration of 10 Mbps Ethernet equipment in fiber optic-based Fast Ethernet networks. In addition to media conversion there is a corresponding speed matching for 10/100Base-TX.

The Auto Negotiation protocol is supported for automatic configuration of half and full duplex mode. Furthermore, the operation mode (full and half duplex) can be manually configured with a DIP switch.

The bridge is designed as a desktop device and available in two versions: for multimode (1000Base-SX) and single mode (1000Base-LX). A special feature is the possibility of an alternative power supply via the USB port so that the attached power supply need not to be used. 

In an extended version there is an additional power supply via Power-over-Ethernet possible. In this case, the Bridge is used as a consumer (PD – Powered Device) and taps the corresponding power from the RJ-45 port.
