EL1216 Series


10/100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX Media Converter

Link Fault Pass Through (LFPT)
Built-in fiber tray




The EL1216 Series provides media conversion between 10/100BASE-T(X) and 100BASE-FX Fiber. Easy plug-and-play design facilitates network infrastructure construction. The EL1216 series is designed for SC or ST fiber connection applications. The EL1216’s mechanical design prevents physical contact with fiber transceiver while the case is sealed; The EL1216’s compact size is suitable for space limit installation and it is the ideal media converter for enterprise environments.
