100/1000BASE-T1 Media Converter

100/1000BASE-T1 Media Converter

Fast/Gigabit Automotive Ethernet to Standard Ethernet converter with advanced features

The 100/1000BASE-T1 Media Converter realizes a full-duplex physical-layer conversion between 1000BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet), or 100BASE-T1 and 100BASE-TX (Fast Ethernet) networks, and features TE MATEnet and RJ-45 connectors. Communication speed and master/slave settings can be auto-negotiated with a link partner or set manually by the user. A USB port (VCP) can be used to read device status and port diagnostic. The device can also be used as a USB-CAN(/FD) interface.

  • Automotive Ethernet to Standard Ethernet conversion
  • 100/1000 Mbit full-duplex communication
  • Speed auto-negotiation or manual selection
  • Master/slave auto-negotiation or manual selection
  • IEEE and Legacy mode
  • Automatic polarity detection on T1 port
  • Frame generator mode
  • USB for configuration, status and port diagnostic
  • Can be used as a USB to CAN(/FD) interface
  • USB or externally powered
  • Aluminium enclosure
  • DIN rail mounting possibility

The media converter offers advanced features such as frame generator, cable diagnostic, as well as a possibility to be used as a USB to CAN(/FD) interface simultaneously with the media conversion function.

The open communication protocol over USB or CAN(/FD), which allows to read status information and configure port parameters, enables to easily integrate the converter into any system. The user can programmatically configure the device. A free-of-charge PC application is available to visualise the device’s status, configure its parameters and use the advanced functions.

The media converter is an ideal tool for connecting a 100BASE-T1 or 1000BASE-T1 ECU with a computer or a laptop. The in-built status LEDs and dip switches allow to easily use the converter without a PC.
