Advantech BB-850-18610

Dual Port Managed Media Converter

  • Functions as two independent copper to fibre media converters, doubling port density in the iMediaChassis and MediaChassis product lines Interchangeable SFP modules allow for multiple fibre type conversion options (single-mode, multi-mode, long haul, short haul, etc.)
  • 100 Mbps SFPs and 2xLIM modules are hot-swappable; no need to power-down chassis when upgrading or troubleshooting
  • Link Fault Pass-Through (LFPT)
  • Config Control


The IE-iMcV-2xLIM, TX/SFP is a Fast Ethernet module which provides two conversions of 100Base-TX twisted pair to 100Base-FX/SX singlemode or multi-mode fibre. There are two sets of ports, RJ-45 (copper) and SFP (fibre). The SFP port supports all MSA and Cisco compliant, SC, LC and single-strand fibre (SSF), 155 Mbps SFPs. Designed as a Layer 1 device, the IE-iMcV-2xLIM is entirely transparent to both Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols. The IE-iMcV-2xLIM is SNMP-manageable and can be installed into the modular, SNMP-manageable iMediaChassis or the MediaChassis series.

Easily configure and manage converters with the GUI-based iView². As an SNMP management application, iView² gives network managers the ability to monitor and control products. iView² runs standalone on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7 or as a Web Server running under IIS.
