FCC Warning 

This Equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits 
for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. 
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against 
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment 
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not 
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause 
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no 
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. 
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or 
television reception, which can be determined by turning the 
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the 
interference by one or more of the following measures: 
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. 
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. 
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that 
to which the receiver is connected.   
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. 
 
 

CE Mark Warning 

This is a class A product. In a domestic environment this product 
may cause radio interference in which case the user may be 
required to take adequate measures.

1. Introduction 

The LevelOne 10/100 TX to 100FX Media Converter is a 
cost-effective solution for the converting between 10/100Base-TX 
and 100Base-FX cabling, it allows you to extend the cabling 
distance of your 100Base-FX network. The 10/100 TX to 100FX 
Media Converter provides cabling connectors: SC multi- mode fiber 
connector and SC single-mode fiber connector. There are 4 DIP- 
switches to set the operation mode for UTP, Fiber ports and link loss 
forwarding function. With TS1000 compliant, it supports alarm 
output, display and loop-back test functions simplify maintenance 
and fault isolation tasks 
 
The 10/100 TX to 100FX Media Converter can be slotted in 
FVT-4000 Multi-Converter Chassis, which allows your network 
connectivity to be more flexible. It also can be use as stand-alone 
without slot in Multi-Converter Chassis. The package has included 
the AC power adaptor for stand-alone using.

Link Lost Forwarding

:  

When LLF is enable, allow UTP link failures to be reported to the 
fiber side and also allow Fiber link failure to be reported to the UTP 
side. Therefore, A link loss forward feature is provided in both UTP 
and Fiber side. 
 

Pure Converter mode 

(Fast Ethernet Module):   

When pure converter mode is enabling (on), it operates with the 
minimum latency. The transmission flow does not wait until entire 
frame is ready, but instead it forwards the received data immediately 
after the data being received. And TP port should be forced at 100M 
in this application. When DIP-Switch is in Switch Converter mode 
(off), the converter function is same as Switch Hub. 
 
 

Note: 

Please don’t change the DIP-switch setting when UTP or fiber port is 
transmitting or receiving data. It may cause some data error.

3. Connection 

3.1. Cabling 

ƒ

 

Twisted-pair segment can be use unshielded twisted pair (UTP) 
or shielded twisted pair (STP) cabling. The cable must comply 
with the IEEE 802.3u 100Base TX standard for Category 5. The 
cable between the converter and the link partner (switch, hub, 
workstation, etc.) must be less than 100 meters (328 ft.) long. 

ƒ

 

Fiber segment using multi-mode connector type must use 50 or 
62.5/125 um multi-mode fiber cable. You can connect two 
devices up to a 2-kilometer (6,562 ft.) distance. 

ƒ

 

Fiber segment using single-mode connector type must use 
8/125 or 9/125 um single-mode fiber cable. You can connect two 
devices in the distance of 30 Kilometers in full duplex operation. 
For half-duplex operation, the recommended maximum distance 
is 412 meters (1,352 ft.) 

 

3.2. RJ-45 

Port 

RJ-45 Port (Auto MDI/MDIX): the Ethernet RJ-45 will auto-sense for 
10Base-T or 100Base-TX connections. Auto MDI/MDIX means that 
you can connect to another Switch or workstation without changing 
non-crossover or crossover cabling. See the below figures for 
straight through and crossover cable schematic. 

Pin Number 

Assignment 

1 Tx+ 
2 Tx- 
3 Rx+ 
6 Rx- 

RJ-45 Pin Assignments 

 
[Note]    “+” and “-” signs represent the polarity of the wires that 
make up each wire pair.

3.3. Fiber 

Fiber Port: It is a 100 Base-FX connection. We provide SC 
connectors (multi/single mode). Please follow the below figure to 
connect it. Wrong connection will cause the port cannot work 
properly.
