  • Standalone or Rackmount (Interchangeable)



The TC3006 “MAXI” Gigabit Ethernet Multimode-to-Single Mode Fiber Optic Converter converts multimode formats to single mode formats, or vice versa, for Gigabit data transmission. It also repeats the multimode & single mode fiber signals. Transmission distances to more than 100km are possible with the Laser 1550nm option (34dB loss budget).

The MAXI will convert or repeat all popular wavelengths 850/1300nm Multimode or 1300/1550nm Single Mode. It is compatible with Gigabit Ethernet standards 1000Base-SX and 1000Base-LX.

The MAXI provides users with several key features including Local & Remote Loopback, Dry Contact Relay Alarm, Audible Alarm Buzzer, Power Redundancy, and standalone or rackmount modularity.

The Dry Contact Alarm is particularly beneficial. Along with an audible alarm buzzer, it identifies Optical Signal Loss on either the multimode or single mode ends.

Power redundancy is load sharing and switches over automatically in the event of a failure. Power can be either 12VDC (standard), 24VDC, -48VDC, 125VDC or 115/230VAC with an external power cube. Standalone versions are modular, i.e. used either in a standalone case or in a rackmount assembly. Standard connectors are ST, SC or FC type.

Four DIP switches and eight LED indicators are provided to help installation and troubleshooting. A hardened temperature version (-20o to 70oC), Model TC3006T, is also available.

The MAXI Mode Converter is used to convert multimode to single mode, or vice versa, in a variety of LAN environments including Gigabit Ethernet Switches and Routers. This conversion is done to cross-connect different fiber types, regenerate optical signals and/or extend transmission distances. It can also be used to repeat a Gigabit signal on multimode or single mode fibers.
