Fast Ethernet Mediaconverter eCon3011

The Fast Ethernet Mediaconverter eCon3011 of the product family HARTING eCon 3000 is suitable for industrial applications and support both Ethernet (10 Mbit/s) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbit/s). The Mediaconverter enables the conversion from shielded Twisted Pair cables to fiber-optic cables (Multimode and Singlemode). The latency of the converter is 860 ns and is conform to the repeater class II. The eCon 3011 Mediaconverter is configurable via Dip Switch and offers a variety of control functions. An additional benefit is the support for Power over Ethernet according to the IEEE The media converter can provide power to a connected device via the RJ45 interface.

The Mediaconverter has two operating modes:

In the switch mode, it operates as an unmanaged Ethernet Switch with Store and Forward Switching which supports asynchronous data communication, Auto-crossing and Auto-negotiation.
In the converter mode, it works with a data rate of 100 Mbit/s (Full duplex). The latency is very low in this operation mode.

The features are:

  • Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af)
  • Converter Mode with a very low latency
  • Store and Forward switch mode
  • Link Fault Path Through (LFP)
  • Repeater Class II
  • Power over Ethernet (Power Source Equipment)
  • 9 kByte Jumbo Frames in converter mode
  • 2 kByte Frames in switch mode
  • SC or SFP F.O. Interface
