The WL-240 Super Converter provids dual speed F/O conversion between 10/100Base-TX copper
media and 100Base-FX fiber media in compliance with IEEE802.3 standards. The converter automatically
selects the convesion mode: fully transparent 3R (Retiming, Reshaping and Regeneration) conversion
mode if the copper port locks on 100M, and switch mode if the copper port locks on 10M.
The enhanced link verification features: propagation of no link (PONL), far end fault indication (FEFI), loop
back test and remote TP status indication (RTPSI) assure fast installation, highly reliable operation, minimal
downtime and cost effective service.
The converter supports auto MDI/MDI-X, auto-negotiation (A/N) and manual selection of FDX or HDX
mode on the TX and FX ports, flow control (enable/disable) and enhanced link verification features.
The super converter is fully transparent to any frame size (including Jumbo frames) in transarent mode
and support large VLAN frames, upto 1600 bytes, in switch mode.
The fiber port is available with open SFP F/O port (atmost flexibility) or fixed SC or ST F/O conectors
for multimode (MM), singlemode (SM) and single-fiber links for distances of up to 100Km.
Eight positions external DIP switch enables easy setup of the converter
and link verification operation, including converter/switch mode, autonegotiate/manual, duplex, speed, flow control, PONL, loop-back
test and RTPSI.
Highly visible LED indications display the status of the converter
TP and F/O ports, as well as the status of the remote TP port
and loop-back test results provided the remote converter is a
WizLAN device that supports RTPSI and loop-back.
The WL-240 is a plug & play device that assures fast & easy
installation, operation and maintenance.
