Media converters do more than just convert copper Ethernet signals to fiber. They allow your LAN to be extended beyond the normal 100 meter limit. By using a pair of media converters, LANs can be extended up to 2km with multimode fiber and up to 20km with single-mode fiber. Since your data is traveling via fiber, it's protected from ground loop problems and electrical interference present along the cable run.
The economical EIS series media converters are stand-alone products that come with a power supply or can be mounted in a 19 inch rack chassis. The optional rack system holds up to 16 of the EIS products and includes one power supply to power installed EIS models via the backplane.
Extension of LAN distances make it possible to communicate with remotely located Ethernet enabled devices. The application could be as simple as getting data from one end of the warehouse to the other, tying two buildings together, enabling communications on a tank farm, or monitoring a SCADA system at a waste water plant.
