The miConverter 18-Module Power Chassis is a costeffective mounting and powering solution for miConverter miniature media converters. This compact chassis is ideal for consolidating multiple media converters into a highdensity, rack mountable form factor. It can be deployed in Service Provider, Enterprise and Government applications where fiber optic links are distributed from UTP switch equipment. The miConverter chassis is suitable for Fiberto- the-Desk, Campus LAN/WAN fiber networks and hybrid copper/fiber networks.

The chassis holds eighteen miConverter 10/100, 10/100 Plus, Gx and GX/T copper to fiber media converter modules with barrel-style DC connectors. It provides centralized power for all installed modules, and eliminates the need for individual power supplies. It is available with a single universal AC, 24VDC or 48VDC internal power supply.

The chassis is less than 1.5U high, and two chassis can be installed in 3U of rack space. It can be mounted in a standard 19” equipment rack, or it can be mounted in a 23” rack using optional 23” rack mount brackets.

Each media converter within the chassis is secured in place and maintains a reliable power connection, even when data cables are under tension.
