Stingray Optical Media Converters

Stingray Optical Media Converter

Moog Protokraft Stingray series Ethernet fiber optic media converters consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated along with the 10/100Base-TX to100Base-FX or 1000Base-T Ethernet electrical to 1000Base-LX or 1000Base-SX Ethernet optical media conversion circuitry into an environmentally sealed unit with a Jam Nut M83526 / 21-02 expanded beam optical connector interface.

The optical interface to the Stingray series optical media converters is an M83526 / 21-02 expanded beam connector enabling interconnection to preterminated M83526 optical fiber cable assemblies. The electrical interface to the Stingray series optical media converters is a MIL-DTL-38999 electrical connector. These options enable robust and simple interconnection to Ethernet switches, routers or NICs.
