Fiberplex Ethernet-to-fibre switch battles EMI/RFI

FiberPlex will showcase its TIS-8632 10/100/1000 six-port Ethernet-to-fibre switch that offers immunity to EMI/RFI at InfoComm on stand 715.

It interfaces CAT based networks to fibre optic communications and features two pluggable SFP ports for singlemode or multimode optical fiber and four RJ-45 UTP ports to extend IT data distribution beyond copper cabling’s 100m limitation, or to isolate a path between nodes for security or noise immunity purposes.

Two or more TIS-8632 units can be daisy-chained together via fibre (or a copper jumper cable for short runs) and can be used to add multiple AV elements such as distributed IP video cameras onto the network, or to isolate a conference room for security purposes.
