McPC Series Media Converters are ideal for Fiber-to-the-Desktop (FTTD) applications and for companies with frequent workstation moves and changes. Installing inside a PC or workstation, and plugging into an adjacent network interface card (NIC), these compact units eliminate the need to place Media Converters on top of desks or computers, reducing clutter of cords and adapters at the workspace.

The McPC series includes:
  • 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet (TX/FX) - Designed to connect to NIC cards running at Fast Ethernet speeds
  • 10/100 Mbps - A media converter that auto-senses the connected device’s rate (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) and duplex mode (Half-Duplex/Full-Duplex)
  • 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet (TX/SX or /LX) - Converts 1000 Mbps over copper to 1000 Mbps over fiber. Ideal for bringing Gigabit speed connectivity to the desktop
McPC converters accommodate crossover or pass through cables, with either a pushbutton MDI/MDIX switch or AutoCross, a feature which automatically selects the correct operating mode. Units also feature handy status LEDS to assist in network diagnostics and troubleshooting. In addition, McPC TX/FX and McPC 10/100 include troubleshooting features that make it easy to isolate fiber breaks.
