The FlexPoint 10FL/T is a 10BASE-FL fiber to 10BASE-T UTP media converter that provides reliable and cost-effective network connectivity and fiber extension.

The UTP port auto-negotiates the duplex mode of the attached device for plug-and-play installations. The port detects and corrects wiring polarity reversals, and features a crossover switch that eliminates the need for a crossover cable and facilitates connectivity to network equipment such as hubs, switches and workstations.

The fiber port operates at 850nm, 1310nm or 1550nm, and features ST, SC or MT-RJ connectors. Multimode fiber models support distances up to 5km, and single-mode fiber models support distances up to 120km.

The FlexPoint 10FL/T supports Link Propagate, which is a fault detection tool that provides a local indication of a remote link loss by disabling the port and propagating the loss of link from one port to the other.

The FlexPoint 10FL/T features descriptions of the LED indicators on the label for easy in-the-field installation and maintenance. The LEDs report the availability of power, port activity and link status, speed and duplex modes.

FlexPoint modules can be mounted utilizing optional wallmounting hardware or with DIN-rail mounting brackets. They can also be rack-mounted in a 5-Module shelf or in a highdensity 14-Module, power-redundant Powered Chassis.

FlexPoint modules installed in the 5-Module shelf or used as standalone devices can be powered by an external AC to DC power adapter, or through the 5VDC chassis connector. Standalone modules can also be powered by attaching an external DC power supply (18-60VDC). When used in the 14-Module power-redundant Powered Chassis with any combination of AC and DC power supplies, the installed modules are powered via the 5VDC chassis connector.

The wide variety of FlexPoint mounting and power options provide flexible upgrade paths as network requirements change and grow.

FlexPoint unmanaged media converters are easy to use and provide dependable fiber connectivity in Enterprise and Government networks around the world.
