Operation Manual
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/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX
The McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX is an IEEE 802.3 single-conversion, 10/100/1000
Mbps switching PC card media converter. It converts 10/100/1000 twisted pair
connections to 1000Base-FX/SX fiber. The fiber port always operates at 1000 Mbps
FDX; the copper port auto-senses the connected device's speed and duplex mode:
10 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps, and HDX or FDX (including Flow Control).
The McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX can be mounted in any PC with a standard PCI slot;
the McPC/PC1 low profile Giga-MediaLinX can be mounted in a low profile PCI slot.
It includes a 4-pin peripheral power supply connector and one RJ-45 connector.
Installing the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX (Standard and Low Profile
Brackets)
Offering plug-and-play operation, the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX comes ready to
install, utilizing power from the PC’s power supply. To install the McPC/PCI-GigaMediaLinX:
1.
Turn off the PC
2.
Remove its cover
3.
Find an empty PCI slot
4.
Align the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX into the slot
5.
Screw the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX into the computer case’s bracket
6.
Make sure the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX does not extend past the edge of the
case
7.
Attach the keyed mini-power connector to the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX
8.
Attach the male end of the “Y” connector to one of the computer’s standard size
power connectors
9.
Replace the cover
10. Attach the cables between the McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX and the devices that
will be connected
AutoCross
Whether using a crossover or straight-through CAT5 twisted pair cabling, McPC/PCIGiga-MediaLinX will support both types of connections with AutoCross, a feature that
automatically selects between a crossover workstation or Pass-Through connection
depending on the connected device.

LED Indicators
Each McPC/PCI-Giga-MediaLinX includes two LEDs, located on the RJ-45 connector.
LED functions are as follows:
FX LNK/ACT
Glows green when a link is established on the fiber port; blinks
green when activity is detected on the fiber port.
TX LNK/ACT
Glows amber when a link is established on the copper port; blinks
amber when activity is detected on the copper port.

Electrostatic Discharge Precautions
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause damage to any product, add-in modules or stand alone
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 stand alone 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.
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 IMC Networks to ensure factory-clean 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.
