Stand-alone Fast Ethernet PoE Media Converter
10/100Base-TX PoE PSE to 100Base-FX

SPOEB Series



The SPOEB Series is a 10/100 Ethernet copper to fiber PoE media converter that enables enterprises to provide power to network devices over the existing CAT5 data connection.

Transition Networks’ AC powered PoE media converters combine data received over a fiber optic link with -48 VDC power; providing power to Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) Power Devices (PD) over unshielded twisted pair cable. The PoE converters are Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) and are fully compatible with Powered Devices (PD) that comply with the IEEE 802.3af standard. The converters also include a PD signature sensing and power monitoring features per the IEEE 802.3af standard. Other features include Over-Current Protection, Under- Current Detection and Fault Protection Input. This feature enhanced model offers the ability to enable/disable many of the features as well as force port capabilities. In addition, with the PSE/LPT switch enabled, a loss of Fiber RX will disable PSE power output on the UTP port for 2 seconds to allow remote device to re-initialize, also known as Powered Device Reset.

The PoE converter is fully compatible with devices that comply with the IEEE 802.3af standard. The PoE converter is capable of inserting power on data pairs or spare pair of the MDI.
