Ethernet to Fiber Converters

Unmanaged Industrial Media Converter

1x10/100/1000Base-T + 1-Slot 100FX/Gigabit SFP 


The IMC-561 Unmanaged Industrial Media Converter converts Ethernet signal to fiber op c signal specifically engineered to offer an affordable solution for industrial systems. Built with rigid IP-30 metal housing to withstand wide operating temperature from -20°C to 60°C, the media converter can operate consistently even in harsh industrial environments. The IMC-561 is featured with intelligent functions like Auto MDI/MDIX for easy plug-and-play, faster link fault diagnosable through LFS (Link Fault Signaling) and LLB (Line Loopback), easy-to-monitor LEDs, easy-to-control DIP switches. These features offer non-stop industrial networking and minimize down me for mission-critical networks.

Robust Performance
With an industrial metal housing case, IP30, surge and ESD protection, the IMC-561 provides a high level of immunity against electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges.

Fault-tolerant and User-friendly Monitoring
LFS (Link Fault Signaling) enables you to easily detect optical signal strengths and faulty links on both copper and fiber ports. 

DIN-Rail-mounted Power Adapter (AC to DC)
IMC-561 is combined with “DIN-Rail Power Adapter” which functions as primary power source that converts AC to DC for board operation.

Redundant Power Supply
IMC-561 is developed with standard “6-pin Terminal Block” for redundant power to provide continuous service resulting reliable and consistent network.

Easy Plug-and-play Operation
Being compact in size, IMC-561 media converter is an easy-to-setup and ready-to-use solution for any application system.
