The N-Tron® 302MC is a 10/100BaseTX to 100BaseFX Industrial Media Converter. It is housed in a ruggedized DIN-Rail enclosure and is designed for use in industrial data acquisition, control and Ethernet I/O applications. N-Tron's 302MC Industrial Media Converter is designed to allow the connection of 10/100BaseTX Ethernet devices to 100BaseFX fiber cabling infrastructure. The 302MC provides one RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX port and one 100BaseFX port. The RJ-45 port is full/half duplex capable, using state-of-theart Ethernet switching technology. The 302MC auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the TX copper port connection and configures itself automatically. The 100BaseFX fiber optic port utilizes industry standard ST or SC connectors and is configured for full duplex operation. Both multimode and singlemode fiber models are available. Unlike most media converters, the 302MC uses switching technology. This means 10Mbps devices can be connected today and upgraded to 100Mbps later. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match the specific network environment.
