Fibre Optic Ethernet Media Converters

Saturn Series

Moog Protokraft Saturn series fibre optic Ethernet media converters consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated along with the 10/100Base-TX to 100Base-FX or 1000Base-T Ethernet electrical to 1000Base-LX or 1000Base-SX Ethernet optical media conversion circuitry into an environmentally sealed unit.

The optical interface to the Saturn series optical media converters is an LC-Field® connector enabling interconnection to pre-terminated LC based optical fibre cable assemblies. The electrical interface to the Saturn series optical media converters is an RJ-Field® connector enabling interconnection to pre-terminated RJ-45 Cat-5 patch cable assemblies.


Saturn series Fast or Gigabit Ethernet media converters enable high speed network communications over long distances in harsh environments.
