10BaseT to 10Base2 Media Converter Card
The ERMC01N, designed to fit into ERM21C chassis, is a compact, cost-effective means for adapting existing Ethernet cabling to configure to network requirement changes. The IEEE 802.3 compatible ERMC01N converts ThinNet signals to UTP (unshielded twisted pair), and vice-versa. The ERMC01N is a highly robust design and is packaged in a rugged metal enclosure to ensure durability and reliability.
UTP (10BaseT): RJ45 Modular 8-Pin female connector, with MDI/MDIX feature.
BNC (10 Base2): RG-58 ThinNet.
Special consideration must be given to maximum segment lengths on each side of the ERMC01N. It is recommended that IEEE 802.3 specifications for segment distances be adhered to: UTP (10BaseT) = 100m (300 ft.) ThinNet (10Base2) = 185m (555 ft.)
UTP Crossover Capability:
There are some applications in which the UTP segment may or may not be connected to the repeater. To provide maximum installation flexibility, the ERMC01N features a UTP crossover switch that eliminates the need for a specially configured UTP crossover cable. This allows a repeater or non-repeater decisive to be attached to the UTP segment side. The slide switch is located next to the RJ45 connector and is accessible without opening the case.
