FCC RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE
STATEMENT
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B computing 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 the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate
the equipment.
The use of non-shielded I/O cables may not guarantee compliance with FCC RFI limits. This digital apparatus does
not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emission from digital apparatus set out in the Radio Interference
Regulation of the Canadian Department of Communications.
Le présent appareil numérique n’émet pas de bruits radioélectriques dépassant les limites applicables aux appareils
numériques de classe B prescrites dans le Règlement sur le brouillage radioélectrique publié par le ministère des
Communications du Canada.

ABOUT THE MCPC MEDIALINX
Part Numbers: 855-12733-RX, 855-12733-TX
855-15733-RX, 855-15733-TX
The above part numbers must be installed in pairs. As a pair,
the units provide secure data to be passed in one direction
only.
The McPC MediaLinX provides a single conversion between
10/100 Base-T twisted pair and 100 Base-SX/FX fiber. This
device Auto Negotiates speed and duplex on the copper port
and the fiber 100Mbps, FDX. The media converter supports
jumbo frames up to 1916 MTU.
The McPC MediaLinX is a fixed fiber transceiver model, includes
one 10/100Mbps RJ-45 connector and one 100Mbps SC fiber
connector which can support Multi Mode fiber. One model offers
a PCI bracket, the other model offers low profile PCI bracket,
and both must be installed in a PCI slot in a PC. No drivers are
required for this product line; it converts from fiber to copper
and uses a 4-pin peripheral power supply connector.
INSTALLING THE MCPC
Offering plug-and-play operation, the McPC MediaLinX comes ready to
install, utilizing power from the PC’s motherboard. To install the McPC
MediaLinX

LED OPERATION
Each McPC MediaLinX includes two LEDs, located on the RJ-45
connector. LED functions are as follows for the TX Unit:
FX
FX LNK/ACT
TX
Glows green when a link is established on the FX (fiber)
port; blinks green when activity is detected on the fiber
port.
Although the copper and fiber ports may not be
physically connected, the FX (fiber) port will always
show a green LED, as the link is forced ON, to ensure
the connection.
TX LNK/ACT
Glows green when a link is established on the TX
(copper) port; blinks green when activity is detected on
the copper port.

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.
Good
system performance requires clean optics and connector
ferrules.
1. Use fiber patch cords (or connectors, if you terminate your
own fiber) only from a reputable supplier; low-quality
components can cause many hard-to-diagnose problems in
an installation.
2. Dust caps are installed at B&B Electronics to ensure factoryclean optical devices. These protective caps should not be
removed until the moment of connecting the fiber cable to
the device. Should it be necessary to disconnect the fiber
device, reinstall the protective dust caps.
3. Store spare caps in a dust-free environment such as a
sealed plastic bag or box so that when reinstalled they do
not introduce any contamination to the optics.
4. If you suspect that the optics have been contaminated,
alternate between blasting with clean, dry, compressed air
and flushing with methanol to remove particles of dirt.
12
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE PRECAUTIONS
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause damage to any
product, add-in modules or standalone units, containing
electronic components.
Always observe the following
precautions when installing or handling these kinds of products
1. Do not remove unit from its protective packaging until
ready to install.
2. Wear an ESD wrist grounding strap before handling any
module or component. If the wrist strap is not available,
maintain grounded contact with the system unit throughout
any procedure requiring ESD protection.
3. Hold the units by the edges; do not touch the electronic
components or gold connectors.
4. After removal, always place the boards on a grounded,
static-free surface, ESD pad or in a proper ESD bag. Do not
slide the modules or standalone units over any surface.
WARNING!
Integrated circuits and fiber optic
components
are
extremely
susceptible
to
electrostatic discharge damage.
Do not handle
these components directly unless you are a qualified
service technician and use tools and techniques that
conform to accepted industry practices.
