14 Port/Slot Unmanaged Fiber Converter Chassis, Single Power Supply, 19" Rack Mountable

The 14 Slot Rack-Mount Chassis is specially designed to accommodate our media converters and supports plug-and-play media converter installation. Continuous operation is of great importance to fiber communication, so the chassis is equipped with optional redundant power supply and Hot-Swapping function which allows installing/removing the converter/power supply without powering off the chassis. Moreover, to stabilize the performance and extend the lifetime, two cooling fans are installed internally. Together with our MC series Gigabit / Fast Ethernet media converters is the ideal solution for your media conversion network.

This chassis has the option of using a redundant power supply (sold separately).

Link/Act LED
Lamp is off
1. Haven't Connected the electrical cables to the electrical port or it doesn't have a good connection. Make sure the power cord is connected correctly and make sure there is a good connection.
2. Used the wrong electrical cables for electrical connection. Used the wright electrical cables for electrical connection.
3. Any fault with the NIC and the terminal of Ethernet Make sure the NIC and the Ethernet port are working correctly
FX & FX-Link/Act LED
Lamps are off
1. There may be a fault with the optical devices Check the fiber optical devices and the fiber connection to see of they are working correctly.
2. The optical fiber has broken down or there is a bad connection.
3. The optical fiber is over-loss
Lamps are normal
but the data can not be transmitted
1. The Connection between the optical fiber and devices is not valid, this will cause the TX power not to work correctly. Check the fiber connectors and make sure the connections between optical fibers and devises are valid.
2. The system only gets power for a moment. If there are any changes in the network it may take a little while for media converters to adapt. If it still is not working after waiting a few minutes and all connections have been completed correctly, then turn off the power and unplug the power cord, wait for a few minutes and then reconnect the power cord turn device back on and try again.
