DIN-Rail Mounting
Install the unit on a standard 35mm DIN-Rail. Recess the unit to allow at least 5” of horizontal clearance for the fiber optic cable
bend radius.
To install the unit to 35mm industrial DIN-Rail, place
the top edge of the included mounting bracket on the back
of the unit against the DIN-Rail at a 15° angle as shown.
Rotate the bottom of the unit to the back (away from you)
until it snaps into place.
300-PM
900-PM
URMK
To remove the unit from the 35mm industrial DIN-Rail,
place a flat head screwdriver into the orange release clip
found at the bottom of the unit, and apply downward force
on the clip until it disengages from the bottom of the unit
from the DIN-Rail. Rotate the bottom of the unit towards
you and up at an approximate 15° upward angle to
completely remove the unit.
With the exception of the 524TX and
526FX2, all N-Tron™ products are designed
to be mounted on industry standard 35mm
DIN-Rail. However, DIN-Rail mounting may
not be suitable for all applications. We offer
three alternative mounting solutions: Our 300
Panel Mount Assembly (P/N: 300-PM) may
be used to mount a single 100 or 300 Series
unit to a panel or other flat surface. Our 900
Panel Mount Assembly (P/N: 900-PM) may
be used to securely mount our 100, 200, 300,
400, 500, or 900 Series products to a panel or
other flat surface; Our Universal Rack Mount
Kit (P/N: URMK) may be used to mount our
products to standard 19" racks.

APPLYING POWER (Top View)
Unscrew & Remove the DC Voltage Input Plug from the Power Input Header
Install the DC Power Cables into the Plug (observing polarity).
Plug the Voltage Input Plug back into the Power Input Header.
Tightening torque for the terminal block power plug is 0.22 Nm/0.162 Pound Foot.
Verify the Power LED stays ON (GREEN).
Note: Only 1 power supply must be connected to power for minimal operation. For redundant power
operation, V1 and V2 inputs must be connected to separate DC Voltage sources. This device will draw
current from both sources simultaneously. Use 16-28 gauge wire when connecting to the power supply.
Recommended 24V DC Power Supplies, similar to:
100VAC/240VAC:
N-Tron’s NTPS-24-1.3, DC 24V/1.3A

N-TRON SWITCH GROUNDING TECHNIQUES
The grounding philosophy of any control system is an integral part of the design. N-Tron switches are designed
to be grounded, but the user has been given the flexibility to float the switch when required. The best noise
immunity and emissions (i.e. CE) are obtained when the N-Tron switch chassis is connected to earth ground via
a drain wire. Some N-Tron switches have metal din-rail brackets that can ground the switch if the din-rail is
grounded. In some cases, N-Tron switches with metal brackets can be supplied with optional plastic brackets if
isolation is required.
Both V- legs of the power input connector are connected to
chassis internally on the PCB. Connecting a drain wire to
earth ground from one of the V- terminal plugs as shown here
will ground the switch and the chassis. The power leads from
the power source should be limited to 3 meters or less in
length.
As an alternate, users can run a drain wire & lug from any of the Din-Rail
screws or empty PEM nuts on the enclosure. When using an unused PEM
nut to connect a ground lug via a machine screw, care should be taken to
limit the penetration of the outer skin by less than 1/4 in. Failure to do so
may cause irreversible damage to the internal components of the switch.
Note: Before applying power to the grounded switch, you must use a volt
meter to verify there is no voltage difference between the power supply’s
negative output terminal and the switch chassis grounding point.
If the use of shielded cables is required, it is generally recommended to only connect the shield at one end to
prevent ground loops and interfere with low level signals (i.e. thermocouples, RTD, etc.). Cat5e cables
manufactured to EIA-568A or 568B specifications are required for use with N-Tron Switches.
In the event all Cat5e patch cable distances are small (i.e. All Ethernet devices are located the same local
cabinet and/or referenced to the same earth ground), it is permissible to use fully shielded cables terminated to
chassis ground at both ends in systems void of low level analog signals.

CONNECTING THE UNIT
For the 10Base-FL Fiber Optic port, remove both of the dust caps from the fiber optic connectors and
connect the fiber optic cables. The TX port on the local unit should be connected to the RX port of the far end
device, and the RX port should be connected to the TX port of the far end device.
For 10Base-T port, plug a Category 3 or better twisted pair cable into the RJ45 connector. Connect the
other end to the far end device. Verify that the LNK LED’s are ON once both the fiber and the copper are
linked. The MDIX mode of the 102MC can be changed using jumper J3 on the board. By factory default the
device is set up to use a straight through cable for a PC. Any N-Tron switch will automatically determine what
MDIX the 102MC is using and will connect it to the network.
Warning: Creating a port to port connection on the same switch (i.e. loop) is an illegal operation and will
create a broadcast storm which will crash the network!
Note: The 102MC is a transparent media converter. Both the fiber port and the copper port must be linked in
order for the unit to display any link status on the link LEDs. At least one of the two ports must be hard set to
10Base (if the fiber device is 10Base-FL then it is automatically set to 10Base).
TROUBLESHOOTING
1. Make sure the
(Power LED) is ON.
2. Make sure you are supplying sufficient current for the version chosen. Note: The Inrush current will
exceed the steady state current by ~ 2X.
3. Verify that Link LED’s are ON for both ports.
4. Verify cabling used between stations.
5. Verify that cabling is Category 3 or greater for 10Mbit Operation.
6. The 102MC is a transparent media converter; if one side isn’t linked properly both ports will not indicate
a valid link.
