AXIOMTEK's Rugged Media Converter Support Wide Range Temperature & Redundant Power Input - iCON-32900 Series

February 12, 2009- AXIOMTEK's iCON-32900 series is industrial-grade converter designed to convert Ethernet network signals (10/100Base-TX) to fiber network signals (100Base-FX). The iCON-32900 series can work from -40 to 75°C and accepts a wide voltage range from +12 to 48 VDC. To enhance system reliability, the converters offer "Link Fault Pass Through" feature, redundant power, and relay output alarm. Besides, the iCON-32900 series also meets NEMA TS1/2, UL1604 and UL60950 standard to guarantee reliable operations in harsh, industrial environments. Each converter can be DIN-rail, rack, or panel mounted. AXIOMTEK's iCON-32900 series provides users a cost-effective solution to connect two types of network segments easily.

Wide-operating temperature range supported (-40°C to 75°C)

The iCON-32900 series applies high quality components with advantages of wide operating temperature range (-40°C to 75°C) and long MTBF. The IP20 aluminum housing helps dissipate heat efficiently, allowing system to operate under extremely high temperature conditions.

Certified for harsh environments: NEMA TS1/2, UL1604 & UL60950

The iCON-32900 series meets NEMA TS1/2 standard for traffic control equipment, UL 1604 safety standard for hazardous environment of explosive or flammable conditions, and UL60950 standard for information technology equipment. These certification and approvals ensure the converters work reliable and safe in industrial applications, such as building automation, oil field automation, factory automation, and ITS.

Redundant power input

The iCON-32900 series is equipped with two redundant power inputs which guarantee non-stop operation. The backup power input will take over immediately when the primary DC power input fails.

Relay output alarm for power failure and port break

The iCON-32900 series provides one relay output which can be set up to identify events when power fails or port breaks. So the administrator can follow the appropriate maintenance procedures of emergency to respond high priority warning messages efficiently.

Supports Link Fault Pass-through (LFP) function

The iCON-32900 series comes with Link Fault Pass-Through (LFP) for easily tracing the network link failure. LFP function can force the link to shut down as soon as it notices that the other link has failed, giving the application software a chance to react.

These RoHS compliant products will be ready in end of February 2009. For more product information, please contact our sales representative at
