The Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media Converter is a cost-effective solution for the converting between 10/100Base-TX and
100Base-FX cabling, it allows you to extend the cabling distance of your
100Base-FX network up to 2 kilometers for multi-mode fiber or 30 kilometers for single-mode fiber. The Fast Fiber Converter module gives you the option to choose from the most popular fiber cabling connectors:
SC multi-mode and single-mode connector.
Fast Fiber Converters Module
The Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media Converter provides you with one Fiber connector for your fiber optic cable and one Ethernet
RJ-45 port (Auto MDI/MDIX) for your 100Base-TX copper cable connection. There are four DIP-switches to set the operation mode for
UTP, Fiber ports and link loss forwarding function.
Dual Power Input
To reduce the risk of power failure, the Industrial 10/100Base TX to
100BaseFX Media Converter provides +9 ~ 56 V
dual power inputs.
If there is power failure, Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media
Converter will automatically switch to the secondary power input.
Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media Converter is extremely compact and can be mounted on a DIN-rail or a panel, so it is suitable for any space-constrained environment.
The power line of Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media
Converter supports up to 3,000 V
EFT protection, which secure equipment against unregulated voltage and make systems safer and
Lantech more reliable. Meanwhile, 6,000 V
ESD protections for Ethernet ports make Industrial 10/100Base TX to 100BaseFX Media Converter more suitable for harsh environments.
Wide Operating Temperature
The operating temperature of the Industrial 10/100Base TX to
100BaseFX Media Converter is between -40 ~ 75 o

Wiring the Power Inputs
Please follow the steps below to insert the power wire.
Insert the positive and negative wires into the V+ and V- contacts on the terminal block connector.
Tighten the wire-clamp screws for preventing the wires from loosing.
Wiring the Fault Alarm Contact
The fault alarm contact is in the middle of terminal block connector as the picture shows below. Inserting the wires, it will detect the fault status including power failure/port link failure and form an open circuit.
Insert the wires into the fault alarm contact.
The wire gauge for the terminal block should be in the range between 12~ 24 AWG.
There are few LEDs, which display the power status and network status, located on the front panel of the Industrial 10/100Base TX to
100BaseFX Media Converter, each of them has its own specific meaning as below table.

The DIP-Switch is used to configure operation mode for LFP (Link Fault
Pass-Through) and operation mode for UTP/Fiber port. The default value of DIP-switch is OFF.
ON Enables Port/Power Alarm
OFF Disable Port/Power Alarm
ON Media mode (100TX to 100FX)
Link Fault Pass-Through (DIP-Switch 2): When LFP enabled, it allows UTP link failures to be reported to the fiber side and also allows
Fiber link failures to be reported to the UTP side. Therefore, a link fault pass-through feature is provided in both UTP and Fiber side.
Media mode (DIP-Switch 4): When media mode is enabled (ON), it operates with the minimum latency. The transmission flow does not wait
until entire frame is ready, but instead it forwards the received data immediately after the data being received. And TP port should be forced at 100M in this application. When DIP-Switch is in switching mode
(OFF), the converter function is the same as a Switch Hub.
Please don’t change the DIP-switch setting when UTP or fiber port is transmitting or receiving data. It may cause some data error.
Besides, if you change the DIP-switch setting, please power off the converter and power on again to make the setting effective.
RJ-45 ports (Auto MDI/MDIX): The RJ-45 ports are auto-sensing for
10Base-T or 100Base-TX devices connections. Auto MDI/MDIX means that you can connect to another switch or workstation without changing straight through or crossover cabling. See figures as below for straight through and crossover cable schematic.
RJ-45 Pin Assignments
Pin Number Assignment
Note “+” and “-” signs represent the polarity of the wires that make up each wire pair.
All ports on this unit support automatic MDI/MDI-X operation, you can use straight-through cables (See Figure below) for all network connections to PCs or servers, or to other switches or hubs. In straight-through cable, pins 1, 2, 3, and 6, at one end of the cable, are connected straight through to pins 1, 2, 3 and 6 at the other end of the
Lantech cable. The table below shows the 10BASE-T/ 100BASE-TX MDI and
MDI-X port pin outs.

The fiber port of SC type connector can work in multi mode (2Km) or single mode (30Km).
When you connect the fiber port to another one, please follow the figure below to connect accordingly. Wrong connection will cause the port cannot work normally.
This is a Class 1 Laser/LED product. Don’t stare into the Laser/LED Beam. or shielded twisted pair (STP) cable. The cable must comply with the IEEE
802.3u 100Base TX standard for Category 5. The cable between the converter and the link partner (converter, switch, hub, workstation, etc.) must be less than 100 meters (328 ft.) long.
Fiber segment using single-mode connector type must use
9/125µm single-mode fiber cable. User can connect two devices in the distance up to 30 Kilometers.
Fiber segment using multi-mode connector type must use 50 or 62.5/125
µm multi-mode fiber cable. User can connect two devices up to 2Km distances.

1. Remove the DIN-Rail from the unit; loose the screws to remove the
2. Place the wall mount plate on the top & bottom side of the unit.
3. Use the screws to screw the wall mount plate on the unit.
4. Use the hook holes at the corners of the wall mount plate to hang the unit on the wall.
5. To remove the wall mount plate, reverse steps above.
1. Unpack the unit packing.
2. Check the DIN-Rail is screwed on the unit. If the DIN-Rail is not screwed on the unit. Please refer to DIN-Rail Mounting section for DIN-Rail
Lantech installation. If you want to wall mount the unit, then please refer to Wall
Mount Plate Mounting section for wall mount plate installation.
3. To hang the unit on the DIN-Rail track or wall, please refer to the
Mounting Installation section.
4. Power on the Unit. How to wire the power; please refer to the Wiring the
Power Inputs section. The power LED on the unit will light up. Please refer to the LED Indicators section for meaning of LED lights.
5. Prepare the twisted-pair, straight through Category 5 cable for Ethernet connection.
6. Insert one side of Category 5 cables into the Ethernet port (RJ-45 port) and another side of category 5 cables to the network devices’ Ethernet port (RJ-45 port), ex: switch, PC, or Server. The UTP port (RJ-45) LED on the unit will light up when the cable connected with the network device.
Please refer to the LED Indicators section for LED light meaning.
7. Connect one end of the fiber cable to the SC single-mode connector on this converter and the other end of the fiber cable to the SC single-mode connector on the other 100 Base-FX device.
Note Be sure the connected network devices support MDI/MDI-X. If it does not support, then use the crossover category 5 cable.
8. When all connections are all set and LED lights all show in normal, the installation is complete.
Verify that you are using the right power cord/adapter (DC 9-56V), please don’t use the power adapter with DC output bigger than 48V, or it will burn this converter down.
Select the proper UTP/STP cable to construct your network. Please check that you are using the right cable. Use unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or shield twisted-pair (STP) cable for RJ-45 connections: 100Ω Category 3,
4 or 5 cables for 10Mbps connections or 100Ω Category 5 cable for
100Mbps connections. Also be sure that the length of any twisted-pair connection does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
Diagnosing LED Indicators: the unit can be easily monitored through panel indicators to assist in identifying problems, which describes common problems you may encounter and where you can find possible solutions.
IF the power indicator does not light on when the power cord is plugged in, you may have a problem with power cord. Than check for loose power connections, power losses or surges at power outlet. IF you still cannot resolve the problem, contact your local dealer for assistance.
If the LED indicators are normal and the connected cables are correct and the packets still cannot transmit. Please check your system’s Ethernet devices’ configuration or status.
