Omnitron Launches IEEE802.3bt Fiber to PoE Media Converters

  • Omnitron Systems

IRVINE, CA — Omnitron Systems, a provider of Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and fiber network products, introduced its new IEEE802.3bt OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S fiber to 60 and 90 Watts PoE Power Sourcing (PSE) Media Converters. Typical network applications for the new devices are the delivery of data and power to Powered Device (PD) appliances such as PTZ surveillance cameras, Wi-Fi Access Points and wireless Small Cells.

“Since the ratification of the IEEE802.3at 30Watts standard in 2009 and until September 2018 when the IEEE 802.3bt 100 Watts standard has been ratified, all high power PoE applications utilized proprietary methods challenged with interoperability issues. Utilizing the new 802.3bt standard, Omnitron’s new GHPoEBT/S fiber to PoE media converter and power injector meets the network demand where fiber data reach, high PoE power, and interoperability is required and expected,” said Sankar Ramachandran, Omnitron’s product marketing director.

An Unmanaged Multi-port Media-Converter/Injector

The OmniConverter GHPoEBT/S is an unmanaged multi-port media-converter/injector with different fiber, and 10M/100M/1G RJ45 copper port models. Models are available with one or two 60 and 90 Watts power ports; they also support the 802.3af (15 Watts) and 802.3at (30 Watts) PD devices. Models with two fiber ports can be daisy chained or deployed in a redundant fiber topology for critical applications. Models with two RJ-45 ports can fully power two 802.3bt PoE 90 Watt PDs simultaneously.

Some of the GHPoEBT/S features include remote link-fault detection modes and remote PoE Power Reset modes. These features enable remote diagnosis and remote powered appliance reset reducing the cost of network maintenance.

Fiber ports are available with SC, ST and LC fixed-fiber connectors, or with small form pluggable (SFP) transceiver sockets that support 100M or gigabit multimode or single mode fiber with variety of CWDM and DWDM wavelengths and distances.

The GHPoEBT/S can be wall-mounted, rack-mounted or DIN-rail mounted, and can be powered using external AC to DC power adapters. Models are available for commercial (0 to 50 degC), wide (-40 to 60 degC) and extended (-40 to 75 degC) operating temperatures. All OmniConverter products are made in the USA and are TAA compliant, and are supported by free Lifetime Warranty and 24/7 technical support.
