Maverick TFOCA-II® Ethernet Media Converters

Maverick Ethernet Media Converter

Moog Protokraft Maverick series fiber optic Ethernet media converters consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated along with the 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX or 1000Base-T Ethernet electrical to 1000Base-SX Ethernet optical media conversion circuitry into an environmentally sealed unit.

The optical transmitters are high performance 1310 nm FP Lasers, LEDs or 850 nm VCSELs. The optical receivers consist of GaAs or InGaAs PIN and preamplifier assemblies and limiting post-amplifiers. The optical interface to the Maverick series optical media converters is a TFOCA-II® connector enabling interconnection to preterminated TFOCA-II® based optical fiber cable assemblies. The electrical interface to the Maverick series optical media converters is a D38999 size 19-18 quadrax connector enabling interconnection to quadrax cable assemblies.
