An optical media module is compatible with the switches in the MICE family. The switches are approved for installation in explosion protection zone 2 as well as optical transceivers and connectors of the microFX Series. With this module, remote terminals can be connected safely via Ethernet in zone 1.
The module has four optical ports (100 Mbit/s) with M12 connections and operates in temperatures from -40 to 70° C. A varnish coats the printed circuit boards for protection against condensation.
Fiber optic cables transmit signals from the module to the remote terminals. MicroFX transceivers, using the M12 connection technique in accordance with IEC 61076-2-101, serve as an Ethernet interface.
The MICE switches support Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, and various routing, redundancy, and security methods.
