Perle Launches Industrial Temperature Media Converters

Industrial Temperature Media Converters transparently connect copper to fiber in locations that are exposed to harsh extended temperatures -40F to +175F (-40C to +75C).

Nashville, TN, June 08, 2012 --( Perle Systems, a global provider of advanced fiber to Ethernet and secure device networking solutions, today launched a full range of Industrial Temperature Media Converters used to transparently connect copper to fiber in locations that are exposed to harsh extended temperatures.

“Equipment found in traffic management, oil and gas pipelines, weather tracking, industrial and outdoor applications must function in temperatures that cannot be supported by a commercial based media converter,” says Al Davies, Director of Product Management at Perle Systems. “Our new rugged Media Converters operate in temperatures from -40F to +175F (-40C to +75C).”

This extended temperature feature, along with a rugged steel casing, make Perle Industrial Media Converters ideal for extending the distance between industrial devices such as security cameras, wireless access points, alarms, traffic controllers, sensors and tracking devices.

In addition to the standard Industrial Media Converters, there are variants in the line that will also provide Power over Ethernet (PoE or PoE+) to compliant Powered Devices (PDs) such as IP cameras, VoIP phones and wireless access points. Furthermore, models exist that support industry standard MSA compliant SFPs.

Perle’s Media Converter line includes over 700 models to transmit 10BaseT, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet over fiber. All Perle Media Converters have an on-board microcontroller which deals with error detection and recovery.

And, Perle Media Converters only use high-end components to ensure product reliability. Perle backs this up with a Lifetime Warranty to guarantee user satisfaction.
