iConverter® 5-Module Chassis
Managed Redundant-Power Chassis
The 1U (1.75 inch) high iConverter 5-Module Chassis has
redundant power supplies and can be mounted in a
19-inch or 23-inch rack. It is designed for Enterprise Local
Area Network (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)
applications where fault tolerance and reliability are essential.
The 5-Module Chassis features two hot-swappable redundant
power supplies. Universal AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power
supplies can be used in any combination. Omnitron’s redundant
power supplies operate in load-sharing mode to reduce the
burden on each power supply to extend the lifetime and fault
Power is provided to up to five iConverter modules via the chassis
backplane. When used with an iConverter management
module, the management capabilities include the ability to
monitor the voltage, current and temperature of each power
supply. Any out of range violation can trigger an SNMP trap to
allow quick corrective maintenance.
In addition to handling the power and management data for
each iConverter module, the 5-Module Chassis backplane
allows sharing of Ethernet data between the individual modules.
iConverter modules that are installed in adjacent slots and
equipped with Ethernet backplane ports have the ability to
connect to each other via the chassis’ Ethernet backplane and
facilitate a variety of flexible network applications including
unmanaged, out-of-band managed, in-band managed and
multi-port configurations.
The high reliability of the redundant power system combined
with its AC and DC power options and its ability to hold five
converters in a 1U height make the 5-Module Chassis the ideal
choice for Customer Premises (CPE), multi-tenant (MTU) or for
Point of Presence (POP) applications where reliability and space
are critical.
The iConverter 5-Module Chassis supports the entire family of
iConverter fiber media converters. All iConverter modules are
hot-swappable and support multiple mounting options.
In addition to the 5-Module Chassis, they can be mounted in a
19-Module (2U, 3.5 inch high) space-saving rack-mountable
chassis (19-inch or 23-inch) with any combination of triple
redundant AC, 24VDC and 48VDC power supplies, in a 2Module AC or 18-60VDC power chassis or in a 1-Module AC
power chassis.
The iConverter 5-Module Chassis is 1U (1.75 inch) high
and supports 19-inch or 23-inch rack mounts
Redundant, hot-swappable AC, 24VDC and 48VDC
power supplies for mission critical networks

Management is accomplished by using an optional iConverter
Network Management Module (NMM), which is capable of
managing up to 19 iConverter chassis using a single IP address.
Management can also be accomplished by using an iConverter
module with integrated management, such as the 10/100M2
managed media converter. Management can be accessed
through a menu-driven command-line interface (CLI) via Telnet
or the Serial Console Port, or can be accessed through a
SNMP-based graphical user interface (GUI) such as Omnitron’s
NetOutlook management software.
The intuitive NetOutlook network management software
provides real-time detailed port and module information as well
as parameter configuration and event monitoring. NetOutlook
can be used as a stand-alone application under Windows
98/XP/NT/2K/Vista or integrated with third-party SNMP
management software.
Static parameters that can be monitored on the 5-Module
Chassis include the chassis type and model, manufacturing
information, along with hardware and software revisions and
serial numbers of the power supplies. Dynamic real-time
parameters that can be monitored include voltage, current and
temperature for the power supplies.
In addition to all standard iConverter SNMP traps such as
module insertion and removal, the power supply modules can
generate traps for out of voltage or chassis temperature range.
All of these events can selectively be enabled or disabled to
cause SNMP traps.

The iConverter family of managed fiber access media converters
are used in Service Provider access networks and Enterprise
LANs. iConverter media converters provide fiber connectivity
with copper to fiber, multimode fiber to single-mode fiber, or dual
fiber to single-fiber conversions.
