EKI-2741LX - 1 Port Gigabit Ethernet to 1000Base-LX Fibre Industrial Media Converter
CE is a mandatory standard for products on the market in the European Economic Area. By CE marking a product, the manufacturer ensures that the item meets the essential safety requirements set out in the applicable CE directive.
This product fully adheres to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS for short.  The directive covers the restriction of use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment and was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is an independent product safety certification organisation based in the United States. UL develops standards for products, materials, components, assemblies, tool and equipment, mainly dealing with product safety.
These devices and systems have been designed to accept a wide voltage DC power input. This feature is desirable in the industrial market where a fixed voltage level or mains AC power cannot be guaranteed.
These devices have been designed to be mounted directly on to an industry standard DIN-rail.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent agency of the United States government that sets standards and governs the testing of conducted and radiated emissions such as EMI.
These products utilise high quality industrial grade components enabling them to work in wide temperature environments. They are capable of running as low as -20C and as high as +70C.
These products utilise high quality industrial grade components enabling them to work in extended wide temperature environments. They are capable of running below -20C and above +70C and offer further protection than standard wide temperature rated products.
These products come with a standard five year manufacturer warranty.

The EKI-2741LX  is an industrial-grade media converter designed to convert a copper TX Ethernet network to a SC type fibre optic network.

The advantage to fibre optics is wider bandwidth, added EMI immunity, and extended distance transmission. Therefore the EKI-2741LX  is an ideal solution for “fibre-to-the-building” applications in central offices and remote sites.

The EKI-2741LX supports MDI/MDIX auto detection, meaning you no longer have to use crossover wires. Furthermore, the EKI-2741LX will operate in a wide -10°C to +60°C or extended -40°C to +75°C operating temperature range and can accept a wide 12V to 48V DC input. In addition, the EKI-2741LX is designed with 3,000V DC surge (EFT) protection against over-voltage, meaning the media converter is ideal for the harsh industrial environment.

Aside from its standard features, the versatile EKI-2741LX also has the LFP (Link Fault Pass-through) feature. When one side of the link fails, the other side continues transmitting packets, and waiting for a response that never arrives from the disconnected side. EKI-2741LX will force the link to shut down as soon as noticed that the other link has failed, giving the application software a chance to react to the situation.

The EKI-2741LX  is available to purchase directly from Impulse as an approved Advantech partner. For more information about the EKI-2741LX  Ethernet to fibre media converter please contact our technical sales team on +44 (0)1782 337 800, or alternatively submit an enquiry.
