Description

BC860 Multi-rate Ethernet to Fibre Converter Card 10/100/1000BaseTpdf
The BC860 is a copper twisted pair to fibre optic media converter for conversion between copper twisted pair 10Base-T, 100Base-T or 1000Base-T data to fibre optic 100Base-FX or 1000Base-X format.

It provides two channels (full duplex) of data transmission with 10/100/1000BaseTduplex autonegotiation. Data isolation transformers are provided for the twisted pair input and output. LEDs provide power, network and fibre activity indication.

All Bluebell cards are designed to retain maximum integrity of the signal path offering excellent jitter free optical transport.

The BC860 is available in multimode and singlemode variants to suit any fibre application. Versions can be selected which provide full duplex operation over two fibres or a single fibre. CWDM versions are available to support the ITU G.694.2 grid specifications.

The BC860 occupies a single slot in the BC100-3RU 19″ rack-mounting frame which can hold up to 15 single slot cards. The compact BC160 1RU is available for up to six cards. Signal and card monitoring is achieved through SNMP monitoring in the BM102 network card.

For stand alone applications the BC860 can be housed in an individual rugged enclosure.
