Backplane Systems Technology is proud to present MPL’s µTX2FX, which is an Ultra-Compact Ethernet Media Converter that translates transmission signals from a twisted pair 100/1000Base-TX cable, to a 100Base-FX or 1000Base-X fiber optic cable. It expands the network data transmission distance beyond the 100-meter limitation of copper wire, to over 10 kilometres by using single-mode fiber optic cable.
For the fiber optic port, any standard Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver module that complies with the MSA standard and is Ethernet compatible can be used. These SFP transceivers modules are available with a variety of different transmitter and receiver types, allowing users to select the appropriate transceiver for the required fiber optical interface. Further, the µTX2FX provides automatic detection and initializing of the SFP module.
Since the µTX2FX design is based on a PHY, the latency of the frame is constant. This allows using the µTX2FX to be most effective in a time-sensitive network that needs to support IEEE 1588 PTP or IEEE 802.1AS gPTP traffic.
