Description

The GCR2000LC, a GCR2000 Series Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter, can be used ‘Standalone’ or installed in an Alloy DCR12 Series Media Converter Chassis, and has 1000Base-T and a 1000Base-SX multimode LC ports. Fibre cable range is up to 550m.

The GCR2000LC is a dual purpose Gigabit Ethernet Media Converter. It can be used as a standalone discrete device, or can be installed as a Media Converter Module into any Alloy 12-slot Media Converter Chassis. Whichever mode the GCR2000LC is used in, it is a flexible solution ideal for a wide variety of media conversion applications in Gigabit Ethernet network environments. With dual 1000Base-T auto-sensing 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 and 1000Base-SX LC terminated multimode ports, the GCR2000LC is an ideal solution for UTP/STP copper to Gigabit Ethernet multimode fibre media conversion tasks. The devices IEEE 802.3ab compliant RJ-45 port supports Gigabit, Fast Ethernet and Ethernet UTP/STP links at up to a 100 metres range, and the 1000Base-SX port has a maximum fibre cable range of up to 550 metres.

The GCR2000LC is a model from Alloy’s GCR2000 Series of Dual Purpose Media Converters. As mentioned above, these converters can be used ‘standalone’ or installed in an Alloy DCR12 Series Media Converter chassis. Models in the series support most types of Gigabit media conversion, including 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 copper to 1000Base-SX multimode fibre (with either LC or SC connectors, maximum fibre cable range of 550 metres), 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 copper to 1000Base-LX singlemode fibre (LC or SC connectors for 10 or 30Km ranges), 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 copper to 1000Base-ZX singlemode fibre (LC or SC connectors for 50Km ranges), 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 copper to 1000Base-LX WDM singlemode/singlecore fibre (SC connectors with 20Km range, with send and receive datastreams mutliplexed over a single fibre core), and 10/100/1000Mbps RJ-45 copper to SFP providing support for any type of Gigabit Ethernet copper to multimode, singlemode or singlemode WDM application available via the installation of a mini-GBIC module. All models in the range are housed in a compact, highly durable all-metal case.
