The following instructions will help you
install your Avocent® Fiber Media Converter.
Should you require further assistance,
please contact Avocent Technical Support.
The Avocent® Fiber Media Converter
converts 1000BaseSX (multi-mode) or LX
(single-mode) fiber to 1000BaseT copper.
The Plug and Play Fiber Media Converter
automatically selects between a crossover
workstation and a straight-through
connection, depending on the connected
device for the twisted pair port.

The Fiber Media Converter can be
installed in an IE-PowerTray or can be
used as a standalone media converter
with a universal external switching
power cube.

Installing the IE-PowerTray
Mount the PowerTray into your rack
using the brackets on either side of the
PowerTray.

Installing a Fiber Media
Converter into the PowerTray
Make sure the Fiber Media Converter’s
data connectors are facing the front
of the PowerTray, then use the guides
to slide it into the PowerTray until it is
seated firmly in the backplane.

Connecting devices
Plug one end of a CAT 5 network cable
into the twisted pair port of the Fiber
Media Converter, then plug the other
end into a device. Plug the PowerTray

LED operation
The Fiber Media Converter has two
LEDs. The FX LNK LED illuminates
the fiber port and blinks green when
data is passing. The TX LNK/ACT
LED illuminates amber when a link is
established on the copper port. It blinks
amber when activity is detected on the
copper port.

Quick Installation Guide
Fiber optic cleaning guidelines
Fiber Optic transmitters and receivers are
extremely susceptible to contamination by
particles of dirt or dust, which can obstruct
the optic path and cause performance
degradation. For optimal system performance,
ensure the following:
• Use fiber patch cords (or connectors,
if you terminate your own fiber) only
from a reputable supplier. Low-quality
components can cause many problems in
installation.
• Dust caps are installed to ensure factoryclean optical devices. These protective
caps should be installed when the fiber
media converter is disconnected.
• Store spare caps in a dust-free
environment such as a sealed plastic
bag so that when reinstalled they do not
introduce any contamination to the optics.
• If the optics have been contaminated,
use compressed air and methanol to
clean them.
Electrostatic discharge precautions
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause
damage to any product containing electronic
components. Always observe the following
precautions when installing or handling:
FCC radio frequency interference
statement
This equipment has been tested and found
to comply with the limits for a Class A
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference when the equipment is
operated in a commercial environment. This
equipment generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instruction
manual, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to
cause harmful interference, in which case
the user will be required to correct the
interference at his/her own expense.
The use of non-shielded I/O cables may not
guarantee compliance with FCC RFI limits.
This digital apparatus does not exceed
the Class A limits for radio noise emission
from digital apparatus set out in the Radio
Interference Regulation of the Canadian
Department of Communications.
• Do not remove the unit from its
protective packaging until it is ready for
installation.
