The EKI-2741 family of Gigabit Industrial Ethernet Media Converters combines the speed of gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet with EMI/RFI noise immunity and electrical isolation of fiber optic cable, allowing gigabit Ethernet connections to span nearly 70 mi (100km).
The EKI-2741SX supports 1000Base-SX fiber connections over multimode fiber up to 1,800 ft (550m). The EKI-2741LX supports 1000Base-LX fiber connections over 6.2 mi (10km). The EKI-2741F supports a Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) slot for optional industry-standard fiber optic transceiver modules, supporting connections up to nearly 70 mi (100km).
All units include Link Fault Pass-through (LFP), which allows cable breaks or power failures to be signaled to attached devices, enhancing network integrity, while simplifying network maintenance and management.
Featuring compact and thin DIN-rail mount metal chassis, the EKI-2741 Media Converters suit limited space situations. They are rugged for industrial applications with dual 12 to 48 Vdc power inputs, 4,000 V Ethernet ESD protection, power line surge protection of 3,000 V, and have an operating temperature range of -10 to 60° C. All modes are cUL (UL/CSA), FCC, CE, and RoHS/WEEE certified.
