Product Description of SCALANCE X 100 Media Converter:
The media converters of the SCALANCE X-100 product line are unmanaged Industrial Ethernet media converters with different types of ports. The products provide an ideal and cost-optimized solution for the conversion of electrical to optical signals. Both product versions have a robust metal housing (IP30) for space-saving mounting in a cubicle, on a standard mounting rail, S7-300 mounting rail or for direct wall mounting. The holding flange on the RJ45 port integrated on the front of the housing, together with the Industrial Ethernet FastConnect IE FC RJ45 Plug, ensure permanent and reliable data communication. The combination of holding flange and IE FC RJ 45 Plug unloads the RJ45 socket of the media converter from tensile and bending stresses. The Industrial Ethernet SCALANCE X101-1 media converter has a 100 Mbit/s multi-mode port with BFOC connectors. The X101-1LD has a 100 Mbit/s single-mode port with BFOC connectors.The X-100 media converters have a redundant voltage supply (2 x 24 V DC) and a fault signalling contact that can be configured via a SET button on the front of the unit. On-site diagnostics is via LEDs
Unique strain relief concept
The SCALANCE X100 Media Converters series have new strain relief sleeves on electrical ports which when used with PROFINET compliant Industrial Ethernet connectors eg. FastConnect RJ45 Plug 180, provides improved tensile and bending force resistance (from the connected data cables) in comparison with standard RJ45 connectors.
