Antaira Develops Compact Unmanaged Gigabit Media Converter


Antaira Technologies, a leading developer and manufacturer of industrial device networking and communication product solutions for harsh environment applications has developed a compact IMC-C1000-SFP series.

Antaira Technologies’ IMC-C1000-SFP series is a compact IP-30 rated gigabit Ethernet-to-fiber media converter featuring a simple plug-and-play connectivity solution to quickly convert between Ethernet media and fiber optics. The small form factor of this metal casing switch is 30 percent smaller, allowing for a more versatile implementation. It is designed to fulfill industrial applications that have small space requirements and need high bandwidth capabilities such as factory automation, security, ITS transportation, power/utility, and water wastewater treatment plants. This device also works well in any other outdoor application susceptible to an extreme ambient weather environment.

The IMC-C1000-SFP series features a 10/100/1000TX Ethernet port and a dual rate 100/1000 SFP slot to support speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. There is a built-in “Link Fault Pass Through” (LFP) and “Far End Fault” (FEF) function to alert users when a fiber link TX or RX connection is lost, and the media converter will cut off all Ethernet connections. It provides 12~48VDC redundant power input support with a reverse polarity and overload current protection. It comes with DIN-rail mounting support as well as wall mountable orientations.

This series provides wide operating temperature range models for either a STD: minus-10° C to 70° C or an EOT: minus-40° C to 75° C. These units also have high EFT, surge (2,000 VDC), and ESD (6,000 VDC) protection to prevent against any unregulated voltage. The compact size and lightweight design has dimensions of 26 mm (W) x 75 mm (D) x 95 mm (H) and a unit weight of only 1 pound. Lastly, it is backed by a five-year warranty from Antaira Technologies.
