The 9465-ET 10/100Mbps Copper to Fibre Optic Media Converter allows an Ethernet network to be extended over a greater distance and is designed for hazardous area mounting inside a suitable enclosure. The fibre optic link can be up to 8km in length when running at 100Mbps. Longer distances are obtained by connecting a 9466-ET (10/100Mbps Ethernet Switch) between two 9465 media converters, effectively giving a ‘repeater’ function. The use of fibre optics gives exceptional immunity to noise and electrical interference, it is also used when connecting a Hazardous Area network to a Zone 2 / Safe Area network or device.
