Media Converters

MCGS1 Series

The KBC MCGS1 series is a fully ruggedized 10/100/1000 Ethernet media converter with PoE (Power over Ethernet). The unit acts as a PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) providing 25.5W @ 48Vdc and is fully compliant with the IEEE802.3at specification. It supports transmission of an Ethernet channel over either one or two, multimode or singlemode optical fibers. Full duplex operation enables distances in excess of 30km on singlemode fiber. The plug-and-play design ensures ease of installation with no electrical or optical adjustment needed. LED indicators are provided to show the operational status of the unit clearly. The series is available in wall-mount configuration.

KBC Gigabit media converters are designed for transmission distances up to 2km for multimode fiber and 30km on singlemode fiber (for distances up to 80km, please contact us). If the media converter is to be connected to an SFP port,
please contact us for advice about the appropriate optical output since SFPs can vary in the level at which they saturate.
