Omnitron Systems announced the launch of the miConverter S-Series, the
smallest media converters available today. Weighing less than 2.5 oz.
(72 grams), and about the length of a standard house key, the
miConverter S-Series provides Gigabit and Fast Ethernet fiber to
10/100/1000BASE-T media conversion, and is designed for mobile
applications where light weight, compact size and low power are
These compact and cost-effective media converters can be USB powered,
enabling fiber connectivity to locations where AC or DC power is
unavailable, such as field-deployed fiber-to-the-laptop and military
applications. Fiber is run directly to the laptop, where it is
converted to copper UTP and connected to a laptop RJ-45 port with an
Ethernet patch cable. Power is supplied to the media converter by the
laptop’s USB port using a standard USB cable, eliminating the
need for an electrical outlet.
The miConverter S-Series is available with 100BASE-FX or 1000BASE-X
fixed fiber transceivers (SC or ST connectors), and supports
multi-mode, single-mode and single-fiber options. It also supports
Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers for adaptability to different
fiber types, speeds, distances, and wavelengths.
The miConverter S-Series is available with a wide operating temperature
range of -40 to 65°C for deployments in harsh environments. For
applications not utilizing USB power, the S-series is also available
with a country specific AC/DC power adapter, providing compatibility
with electrical outlet types found around the world.
