- Provides one Gb fibre port and two 10/100/1000 copper switch ports
- Two RJ-45 ports are triple speed auto-negotiating to enable attaching 10 Mb or 100 Mb or Gb devices
- Three models for three heavy-duty application environments: - Hardened for Factory Floor - Premium-rated for -40ºC to 85ºC, and outdoors - Premium-rated with PoE on the two RJ-45 ports
- Integral terminal blocks for DC power input, external AC power supply optional
- Same packaging and mounting options as popular 14-Series converter Switches and media converters
Combine a Gb fibre Media Converter and a two-port 10/100/1000 copper Switch, and you have the CSG14 Converter Switch, a new high-speed flexible edge-of-the-network industrial Ethernet product. Add in Gb fibre port choices for all multi-mode and single-mode Gb fibre connector types plus DC or AC input power selection, optional PoE, and the metal case and configuration choices you expect from products, and you have the answer to many Gigabit connectivity applications in industrial networks.
The CSG14 family of Gb Converter Switches with a Gb fibre port built-in covers the full range of Gb fibre port choices. Models available provide a) fixed Gb fibre ports for short distance SX fibre, b) fixed Gb fibre ports for 2km multi-mode, c) fixed LC-type transceivers for robust single-mode Gb fibre, and d) SFP ports (Small Form-factor Pluggable) for flexible choices of the transceiver distance needed. The compact package is ideal for industrial network edge installations. Where a Gb Media Converter might have been used, a Gb Converter Switch offers a better value.
The CSG14H Hardened units are for factory floor applications. Any fibre port type may be selected. The CSG14H models are built with high grade components and are constructed using special thermal techniques (patent pending) and a metal case for heavy duty industrial jobs. In addition to a Hardened AC power option and jack, terminals for internal DC power choices at 12V, 24V or -48V DC are included. The ambient temperature rating is for industrial use. No internal air flow is required for cooling, so it resists dust, dirt, moisture, smoke and insects. Mounting may be stand-alone panel-mounting (brackets included), or optional DIN-Rail or rack-mount tray.
The CSG14P Premium-rated units are for temperature uncontrolled applications, typically located outdoors. The CSG14P models are built with premium grade extended temperature components, and use similar thermal techniques (patent pending) as the CSG14H Hardened units. In addition to a Premium-rated AC power option and jack, terminals for internal DC power choices at 12V, 24V or -48V DC are included. The ambient temperature rating is -40°C to 85°C. When used outdoors, the CSG14P should be protected from falling rain. Mounting may be panel-mounting (brackets incl.), or optional DIN-Rail or rack-mount tray.
The latest technology of SFP fibre transceivers has been integrated into the Gb Converter Switch™ package to produce the CSG14U Universal Converter Switch. It can handle any Gb fibre type – multi-mode and single-mode – and fibre media distance with a selection of Gb SFP fibre transceivers, up to two of which can be plugged in. It can also handle any 100Mb fibre media type and distance in the same way, with a selection of 100Mb SFP fibre transceivers that similarly plug in.
And, for copper media attachment, there is a 10/100/1000 auto-negotiating RJ-45 port. Where Gb Ethernet is in use, the CSG14U converts all media combinations. It is Universal.
