eCon 3011 Ethernet media converter with PoE

HARTING eCon 3011 media converter

The eCon 3011 Fast Ethernet media converter is designed for industrial environments

When the performance of electrical Ethernet data transmission bumps up against its limits, migration to optical fiber can extend the range and improve EMC immunity. The HARTING eCon 3011 allows users to replace optical fiber with twisted pair or vice versa. The HARTING eCon 3011 media converter makes it easy.

The eCon 3011 Fast Ethernet media converter is designed for industrial environments, and it supports Fast Ethernet (100 Mbit/s). It performs signal conversion between shielded twisted pair cable and fiber optic cable (multimode or single mode).

The media converter also supports Power over Ethernet. In PoE mode, power can be distributed directly to a node on the network such as a PoE camera.

The eCon 3011 media converter offers a number of settings. In switch mode, the eCon 3011 media converter works in store and forward switching mode similar to an unmanaged Ethernet switch. In converter mode, the eCon 3011 media converter runs at 100 Mbit/s (full duplex) with minimal latency.
