What Is The Fiber Optic Converter?


Optical fiber converter is also called photoelectric converter, commonly known as optical cat.


Optical transceiver is a device that converts multiple E1 (a trunk line data transmission standard, usually at a rate of 2.048Mbps, this standard is adopted by China and Europe) into optical signals and transmits them. Optical transceivers have different prices according to the number of E1 ports. Generally, the smallest optical transceiver can transmit 4 E1s, and the largest optical transceiver can transmit 4032 E1s.


The optical transceiver divides the optical transmitter and off receiver. The optical transmitter receives electrical signals and converts them into optical signals transmitted in optical fibers. The network video server accepts analog audio and video signals, which can be direct signals from cameras and monitoring heads. After digital compression and encoding, MPEG-4 is popular and is a special equipment for network transmission. Video servers generally have Ethernet RJ-45 interfaces and optical fiber FC interfaces, as well as SCSi interfaces for external hard drives for front-end storage. This is the most added equipment in the common language remote network monitoring system.


Optical fiber transmission uses optical signals for broadcasting, which gives them more advantages than older cables, and is faster, consumes less signal, and has a larger maximum distance per cable. Ethernet signals are transmitted through electrical signals transmitted by copper wires. As far as the two signals are concerned, they are too different to be compatible. But with the fiber converter, the two can work together compatible.


In addition to the fiber optic converter tool, the configuration required in the early stage of using a complete network is fiber optic adaptor, fiber optic attenuator, fiber optic patch cord and fiber optic patch panel.



Types of Fiber Optic Media Converters


Not all fiber optic media converters are the same. Like most other electronic products, the specifications of some optical media converters cannot be matched with optical fibers. Although many of these factors are related to performance levels, one of the variables involves compatibility. The same principle applies to fiber optic connector adapters and patch cord connector.


Both ends of the fiber optic adapter can be inserted into fiber optic connectors of different interface types, such as lc to fc adapter, st to lc adapter and mtrj to lc adapter. In this way, the conversion of different interfaces such as FC, SC, ST, LC, MTRJ, MPO, E2000, etc. can be realized.


End of Fiber-to-fiber Converter for SC and ST Connection


Fiber-to-fiber converters are an exception. This type of fiber converter is designed to operate between single-mode and multi-mode fiber, rather than between Ethernet and fiber.


Speed is the next factor to consider. The ultimate key factor of the fiber converter is the distance limitation of the equipment. If you plan to use the converter in a small building, the entire building can be covered.


When to Use Fiber Optic Converters?


The key function of the fiber converter is to overcome the limitations of Ethernet, one of which is distance. Compared with Ethernet, optical fiber provides faster data speed simply because light moves faster than electricity. The exact specifications required for fiber optic converters vary from user to user. Fiber converters and fiber adapters are used in many fields and are getting closer and closer to our lives.
