HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Product Overview
The Converter is primarily designed for larger workgroups,
demanding more speed and bandwidth, and requiring
expansion of the Fast Ethernet network.
It features a MDI/MDI-X crossover “push button” switch for
direct connection to the workstation, switch or hub. Now the
network manager does not need to worry about the cable
configuration (crossover or straight through) when
establishing a connection between RJ-45 ports.
The Converter features both a RJ-45 jack, and a ST, SC, or
WDM fiber optic connector that allows it to connect a
100BaseTX (copper) network to the 100BaseFX (fiber)
network.
It features Auto-Negotiation support which allows the
Converter to support connections with leading
NWay-capable Switches. At full duplex, the Converter can
create potential distances of up to 2 kilometers for
multimode fiber and 60 kilometers for long haul single mode
fiber between a LAN switch, hub or a file server.
Note: It is not recommended to use the Converter in
half-duplex mode, since the maximum spanned
distance is limited to 412 meters.

INSTALLATION
Installing Your Converter
In this chapter, we will take a look at how to install
converters within its operating environment. First, it is
important to unpack the Converter and ensure that all the
components listed in Package Contents are present.

Location
The location selected for installing the Converter may
greatly affect its performance. When selecting a site, we
recommend considering the following rules:
1. Install the Converter in a fairly cool and dry place. See
Technical Specifications for the acceptable temperature
and humidity operating ranges.
Installation

Signamax
065 -1100NS/1110NS/1120NS Series
100BaseTX/FX Media Converter
2. Install the Converter in a location free from strong
electromagnetic field generators (such as motors),
vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.
3. Leave at least 10 cm of space at the front and rear of the
unit for ventilation.
4. Affix the provided rubber pads to the bottom of the
Converter for grip, and to protect the case from
scratching.
MDI/MDI-X Connection
The MDI / MDI-X function alleviates the worry of cable type
configuration used for connecting the converter with a
100BaseTX device. Simply follow the chart below when
connecting the Converter, and use the push button to select
MDI or MDI-X accordingly.
Installation

NWay Push Button Switch Setting
Use the NWay push button switch to activate NWay
operations.
Note: Factory NWay switch default is set to the ON position.
ON:
Activates the NWay auto-negotiation operation
mode. Set the NWay switch to ON when connecting
to an auto-negotiation device. The function will
determine the highest possible speed and duplex
mode in the copper segment.
OFF: Deactivates the NWay auto-negotiation operation
mode. Set the NWay switch to OFF when connecting
to an auto-sensing device that only supports 10/100
detection. Some early switch models only support
auto-sensing of speed, and NOT auto-detection of
both speed and duplex mode (auto-negotiation).
Note: Setting the duplex mode is feasible while the media
converter is “on-line”.

100BaseTX/FX Media Converter
Install the converter
This Converter utilizes ports with fiber and copper port
connectors, functioning under the Fast Ethernet protocol.
100BaseTX Port
The 100BaseTX port supports a network speed of 100Mbps,
and can operate in half and full duplex transfer modes. This
port also offers MDI/MDI-X crossover detection that gives
true "plug and play" capability - just plug in the network
cable to the port and adjust the push-button according the
chart above. The RJ-45 connector is suitable for UTP cable
Category 3, 4, 5 or better.
100BaseFX Port
The 100BaseFX port adds a fiber Fast Ethernet link to your
network device. Compliant with IEEE 802.3u, this port can
transmit data at 100Mbps in full duplex mode across
distances of up to 2km through multimode fiber optic cable.
The fiber port has a choice of ST or SC fiber connector
types for multimode models, and SC connectors are used
on singlemode models.

100BaseTX/FX Media Converter
Desktop Installation
Follow the instructions listed below to install the Converter
onto a desktop location.
1.
Locate the Converter in a clean, flat and safe position
that has easy access to AC power.
2.
Affix the four (4) self-adhesive rubber pads to the
underside of the Converter
3.
Apply AC power to the Converter. (The green PWR
LED on the front panel should light)
4.
Connect cables from the network partner devices to the
ports on the front panel. (The green LNK LED on the
front panel associated with the port should light)
This Converter can also be mounted on a vertical surface.
Simply use the underside of the unit as a template to
measure and mark out the position of the holes on to the
surface where the unit is to be installed. Then use the two
screws provided to mount the Converter firmly in place.
Warning Please exercise caution when using power
tools. Also, install this unit away from damp or wet
locations, or in close proximity to very hot surfaces. These
types of environments can have a detrimental effect on the
converter and cables. An ideal location is a lightly cooled
place such as a typical equipment room.
Connecting To Power
The Converter uses an external power supply rated at 12V
DC @ 0.8A 50~60 Hz.
1.
Insert the power cable plug directly into the receptacle
located at the back of the device.
2.
Plug the power adapter into an available socket.
Installation

065 -1100NS/1110NS/1120NS Series
100BaseTX/FX Media Converter
Check the front-panel LEDs as the device is powered
on to verify that the Power LED is lit. If not, check that
the power cable is correctly and securely plugged in.
Note: For International use, you may need to change the AC power
adapter cord. You must use a power cord set that has been
approved for the receptacle type and electrical current in your
country.
Connecting Fiber Cable
When connecting fiber cable to a 100BaseFX port on the
Converter, be sure the correct type – ST or SC - connector
is used. Follow the steps below to properly connect fiber
cable:
1. Remove and keep the ST/SC port's rubber cover. When
not connected to a fiber cable, the rubber cover should
be replaced to protect the optics.
2. Check that the fiber terminators are clean. You can
clean the cable plugs by wiping them gently with a clean
tissue or cotton ball moistened with a little ethanol. Dirty
fiber terminators on fiber optic cables will impair the
quality of the light transmitted through the cable and lead
to degraded performance on the port.
3. Connect one end of the cable to the ST/SC port on the
Converter and the other end to the ST/SC port on the
other device.
4. Check the corresponding port LED on the Converter to
be sure that the connection is valid. (Refer to the LED
chart in next section.)
Note: When inserting the cable if SC connectors are used, be sure the tab
on the plug clicks into position to ensure that it is properly seated.

Warning Because
invisible laser radiation may be
emitted from the aperture of the fiber port when no cable is
connected, avoid exposure to laser radiation and do not stare
into the open apertures.
Connecting Copper Cable
The 100BaseTX RJ-45 Ethernet port fully supports
auto-sensing and auto-negotiation.
1.
Insert one end of Category 5 twisted pair cable into an
available RJ-45 port on the Converter and the other
end into the port of the network node.
2.
Check the corresponding port LED on the Converter to
make sure that the connection is valid. (Refer to the
LED chart in the next section)

APPENDIX A
Cables
The following are some recommendations as to what you should
and should not do when installing cables. Remember - cables are
the deciding factor in network performance.
mm
24
6mm
Try to
maintain
a bend
radius of
(min.) 4x
the diameter
of the cable
for UTP and
100x for fiber.
Place cable ties
at regular
intervals - do
not over tighten
cable ties - try
to avoid using
with fiber.
Appendix A
Try not to
allow the
cable to
twist too
much - this
creates a
strain on
the internal
cables.
Do not stretch
the cable
especially on
corners, in
vertical cable
trays and when
spanning long
distances.
