1000BaseT to 1000BaseSX/LX converter

TN-SGETF Converters

  • SGETF Series is a stand-alone media converter that provides an interface between 1000Base-T ports and 1000Base-SX/LX ports, allowing users to integrate fibre optic cabling into 1000Base-T copper environments
  • Operating at Layer 1, the physical layer, data is passed through the converter at line speed, making it ideal for applications where low latency is essential
  • Auto-MDI/MDIX
  •  Copper & Fiber Auto-Negotiation
  •  Transparent Link Pass Through
  •  Automatic Link Restoration
  • Remote Fault Detect
