1.1
Mechanical Description
The iConverter 5-Module chassis consists of two AC or DC power supplies. As can be seen from the model table above, the
5-Module chassis models have been pre-configured with two power supplies. The power supplies provide power to the chassis’
5 backplane connectors.
1.2
Backplane Architecture
The chassis features 5 module slots numbered 1 (left-most positioned slot) through 5 (right-most positioned slot).
Backplane A and Backplane B provide Ethernet connectivity between adjacent slots.
Figure 2: iConverter 5-Module Chassis Backplane Architecture
Figure 2 depicts the backplane architecture of the chassis showing Backplane A and Backplane B connectivity.
Backplane A connects odd numbered slots on the left to even numbered slots on the right (i.e. 1-2, 3-4).
Backplane B connects even numbered slots on the left to odd numbered slots on the right (i.e. 2-3, 4-5).
When modules with Backplane capabilities are inserted into adjacent chassis slots, they can connect to each other via the Ethernet
backplanes when enabled, creating a flexible network architectures.
This chassis architecture facilitates a variety of applications including unmanaged, in-band managed and multi-port configurations.

1.3
Application Example
Figure 3 illustrates the connectivity of Backplane A and Backplane B when multiple modules are installed in the chassis. Modules
supporting backplane connectivity (such as the iConverter 10/100M2 and iConverter 4TxVT) can be connected via the appropriate
backplane creating a multi-port device. The figure show a iConverter 10/100M2 module is installed in slot 1 and a iConverter
4TxVT module is installed in slot 2. Both modules have Backplane A enabled. Utilizing the Ethernet backplane between the
slots, a 5+1 switch (5 RJ-45 ports and 1 fiber port) is created.
