The MC100 and MC1000 are highly compact media converter accessories for use with the MX/TX Ethernet product series or for standalone applications.
They are the ideal solution for connectivity from Gigabit switches to Ethernet test equipment, and other devices. Both media converters use Small Form Pluggable (SFP) transceivers which support different fiber types, data rates and distances.
The converters can be powered by an external AC power supply or directly from a USB port on the MX/TX Ethernet testers.
