Installation
Selecting a Site for the Equipment
As with any electric device, you should place the equipment where
it will not be subjected to extreme temperatures, humidity, or
electromagnetic interference. Specifically, the site you select
should meet the following requirements:
•
•
•
•
•
4
The ambient temperature should be between 32 and 104
degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 40 degrees Celsius).
The relative humidity should be less than 90 percent,
non-condensing.
Surrounding electrical devices should not exceed the
electromagnetic field (RFC) standards for IEC 801-3, Level 2
(3V/M) field strength.
Make sure that the equipment receives adequate ventilation.
Do not block the ventilation holes on each side of the switch
or the fan exhaust port on the side or rear of the equipment.
The power outlet should be within 1.8 meters of the switch.

ClearCube F6151 Media Converter and Chassis System
Deciding How to Install the System
The accessories supplied in the product package include:
rackmount screws, rackmount brackets, and bracket screws.
This well-built chassis can be installed in the following ways:
MOUNTED TO 19-INCH STANDARD RACK
Use the rackmount brackets and screws to install the chassis into
any EIA 19” standard rack.
Step 1: Attach the brackets to each side of the chassis. Apply
screws to each side and secure them tightly.
Step 2: Carefully position the chassis into the rack. Align the
brackets to the side holes on the rack and use rack screws
to secure the chassis with the rack.
Step 3: Proceed to the “Connecting to Power” section.
DESKTOP OR ANY FLAT SURFACE
The chassis can sit on desktop or any flat surface with adequate
space and ventilation. If you want to place it onto a shelf, make
sure the shelf can withstand a minimum weight of 10kg.
Step 1: Simply put the chassis on the desired place.
Step 2: Ensure the chassis receives good ventilation.
Step 3: Proceed to the “Connecting to Power” section.

ClearCube F6151 Media Converter and Chassis System
Replacing Media Converters in a Chassis
The chassis is shipped containing 16 media converters. Each media
converter is attached to a media converter carrier, which is already
fitted into bays of the chassis.
The following steps describe how to attach a media converter
carrier to a media converter if you need to replace a media
converter.
Step 1: To install a media converter onto any of the carriers, you
have to unscrew the carrier from the desired bay first.
Step 2: Fit the media converter onto the carrier.
Step 3: When the media converter is completely seated onto the
carrier, insert the carrier to the guide rails of the bay slot.
Step 4: Carefully slide in the carrier until it is fully and firmly
fitted to the power socket. Fasten the screws on the carrier.
L
i. The chassis is designed to house only the proprietary
media converters.
ii. Never insert any media converter into the chassis
directly without using the supplied carriers. These
carriers allow secure and consistent placement of the
media converters into the chassis’ backplane without
causing any damage.
iii. For details, please refer to the User’s Manual for media
converters.
For more information about media converters, see “Media
Converter Overview” on page 9.

ClearCube F6151 Media Converter and Chassis System
Connecting to Power
POWER SUPPLY
The chassis ships with two power supplies. When the chassis is
equipped with two power supplies, you can have the following
advanced performance.
♦
Hot Swappable –
The design of the power system is based on an idea of
providing maximum flexibility and redundancy. In this way,
you may remove any of the two power supplies without
turning off the system.
♦
Redundancy –
During operation, both power supplies are switched on and
share the current load. In case that one of them should fail, the
other will instantaneously take 100% of the load without any
loss. Similarly, if one power supply is removed from servicing,
it can be switched off and removed while the chassis continues
functioning.
♦
Protection System –
The power of each converter bay comes from the two shared
power supplies. Each bay is isolated from each other under a
certain protection mechanism, so that it is free from any
problem that might occur to the power supplies or faulty
converter bay. This is the best solution to protect your
investment in media converters.
CONNECTING TO POWER
The chassis system is equipped with two power supplies.
Step 1: Connect the supplied AC power cord to the receptacle on
the front panel of each power supply.
Step 2: Attach the plug into a standard AC outlet with a voltage
range from 100~240Vac.

Step 3: Turn on the chassis system by flipping the ON/OFF switch
beside the receptacle to ON position. The LEDs on the
front panel of the media converter chassis system will
come on then.

System
Cooling System
The chassis system can hold two power supplies and up to sixteen
media converters, and therefore, it is necessary to provide a good
cooling system to obtain adequate ventilation.
The chassis is equipped with two hot-swappable power supplies
with fans at the rear. The chassis is also equipped with one fan on
the left and right side of the chassis.

One-Channel Media Converter
Ports
The Converter provides one TX port and one FX port. For the FX
port, it provides options of multi-mode fiber using an SC connector.
For the TX port, it uses RJ-45 connector, auto-MDIX, and auto
senses the speed of 10/100Mbps and full/half duplex.
Port Settings
Port settings are made very simple by means of a DIP (Dual Inline
Package) switch at the rear panel of the module.
