Extend High-speed Ethernet

Nov. 12, 2007
By combining the high speed of gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet with EMI/RFI noise immunity and electrical isolation of fiber optic cable, the EKI-2741 family of Gigabit Industrial Ethernet Media Converters allows gigabit Ethernet connections spanning nearly 70 miles (100km).

EKI-2741SX supports 1000Base-SX fiber connections over multimode fiber up to 1,800 feet (550m). The EKI-2741LX supports 1000Base-LX fiber connections of more than 6.2 miles (10km). For flexibility, the EKI-2741F supports an innovative Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) slot for optional industry-standard fiber optic transceiver modules. 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. Pricing starts at $195.
