Factory-Link-SPE-G 1000BASE-T1 Media Converter


The Factory-Link-SPE-G is a physical layer media converter that connects 1000BASE-T1 with 1000BASE-T networks as well as 100BASE-T1 with 100BASE-TX networks. It supports 802.3bp autonegotiation or alternatively a proprietary master/slave negotiation protocol. Master/slave role, speed and auto-negotiation are set via DIP switches. Using the Control Center software, link status and signal quality can be displayed, T1 cable diagnostics can be executed and PHY registers can be accessed. Power is supplied via a dedicated power connector or via the USB port. The power supply switches seamlessly between both inputs. The T1 connection comes with an IEC 63171-6 compliant connector face and features an inductive front-end with additional ESD protection. The housing can be grounded via the power terminal or the grounding screw.
